Today, while in Facebook, I came across this post. The person that posted it was asking for comments. She wanted to know if it was too much to ask. The only comment I could think of was
it’s not too much to ask if you are willing to do the same
I guess, it just caused me to think of how many people desire something in life and from other people, but aren’t willing to consider the amount of commitment and effort that it will require. I even wondered if this particular person would be willing to do the same for someone else.
I’ve had to ask myself this question before. It’s a question that everyone should ask themselves before they get married because this is the type of commitment that marriage requires. Some people view marriage as a contract, but they are highly mistaken. Marriage is a covenant. It is a lifetime commitment that goes beyond self and into the future generations to come.
This type of commitment requires each individual to dedicate themself to the other person no matter how hard it gets. Society has mad it really easy to decide that things are simply too hard and that it’s time to give up. I think people should consider what type of commitment they want from another person and ask if they are willing to do the same.
Personally this is the commitment that I have made to myself, my husband, God, and my children. I will stay married to my husband no matter how hard it gets. This doesn’t mean that there is no concern of the unknown, but this is what I expect from him and so it’s what I, too, am willing to give.
