During the show, Archbishop asked listeners to ask themselves, "Why did you marry your husband? Why did you marry your wife?" And think about it. Well, I can tell you when I met my husband, I had already made a list of things I wanted in a husband and soul-mate. And it had nothing to do with his height or skin complexion...now that would have been too shallow of me, wouldn't it. But I did want someone who I could talk to about anything, someone I could learn from, someone I could look up to, a man who desired to work with his wife in business and a man who would pray over our family and with me. But that's just me.
Next are some other important topics that Archbishop discussed, tonight...The Trust Factor. Do you trust your spouse? Do you trust yourself? Often times people how have trust issues are not trust worthy themselves or need to forgive themselves or others for past hurts or pains inflicted upon them or whether they inflicted hurt on someone else. Regardless, unless these issues are addressed, giving forgiveness its place and allowing trust to be given or received its will continue to be a big elephant in the room. Can you see it sitting over there? I'm just kidding, but to be honest...I'm dead serious.
Its time to get back to basics? Listening and talking...these are typical ChoiceConversations. Afterwards make compromises to one another and commit to keep the communication flowing, regardless.
