“People do not get married planning to divorce. Divorce is the result of a lack of preparation for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as teammates in an intimate relationship.”
“Often we fail to consider the fact that our social, spiritual, and intellectual interests are miles apart. Our value systems and goals are contradictory, but we are in love.”
“The decision to get married will impact one’s life more deeply than almost any decision in life. Yet people continue to rush into marriage with little or no preparation for making a marriage successful. In fact, many couples give far more attention to making plans for the wedding than making plans for marriage. The wedding festivities last only a few hours, while the marriage, we hope, will last for a lifetime”
These quotes are from the book, ‘Things I wish I’d known Before We Got Married’ by Gary Chapman, the author of the 5 Love Languages and there are many more words of wisdom in this book. For the next 3 days, you stand a chance to get your hands on a copy courtesy of Hidden Treasures Bookstores.
