How did that happen?
Is that what you expected to happen?
Probably not. I don't think anyone gets married expecting to have a broken heart.
Today I'm not giving answers. Today I am encouraging you to FIND them. In your own heart. I mean, really, and truly and seriously ask yourself:
What DID you expect out of marriage?
Did you expect him to make you feel happy all the time?
Did you expect him to take away every stress?
Did you expect him to provide an above average lifestyle?
Did you get married just because you didn't want to be the only one of your friends who is NOT married?
And be honest with yourself. Are your expectations realistic?
Can any other human make you feel happy all the time?
Is that even possible?
We cannot be angry at another human being simply because they don't feel like doing - or don't feel like being - what we EXPECTED them to do or be.
That's just immaturity.
It's often important to go back to the beginning and ask yourself what you expected from marriage.
And while you're there, it couldn't hurt to go back to the One who BEGAN marriage. What does HE expect you to expect from marriage?
Do you know?
