    I wish I had some great advice. There are times I don't know how we stay married, love, our children, maybe. I'm not trying to sound negative, I know marrying someone who is a Christian and being able to discuss that is very important. We also agree that teaching our kid's about God, the Bible is important.

    What I try to remember is, we aren't always going to agree or get along. He can't read my mind and I can't expect him too. Not every day is fun or easy. Communication helps.

    Sorry if this is scattered and sounds weird, I'm tired.

    Advice? Look for the good, be honest, and put Jesus at the centre of the relationship. Always look to Him to fulfill your needs; He will fulfill some of them through your partner and some through other means.

    i'm not a couple (haha) but want to say there's not a thing in the world wrong with being single.

    that said, i do understand the feeling, wanting a spouse to share your life with.
    is there a magic bullet? nope. trust God with the future sounds so trite, but there it is. if you're hoping to be married, you should know it's not all bunnies dancing in the sunshine.

    how to get? i got nothin'. how to keep? it's hard work sometimes. seemed to get easier right around the 25th anniversary.


    our dentist is a Christian, and once when he was filling my daughter's cavity i heard him giving advice to her. (he's the dearest man.)

    he said, who you marry is paramount. you'll always have trouble in life, and you can marry the 'wrong' person and it gets worse. marry the 'right' person and you walk through it together. he concluded with, be the right person. be the person God has called you to be, and be Christlike in all you do and say.

    that sounds right to me.

    Hi Pam!

    I don't know how to answer the 1st part of your question, except to say THERE ARE NO PERFECT MEN out there, and even the "Godly" ones WILL stumble. Not saying to settle, just saying that we are all flawed humans, and we need to accept each others flaws as well as our strengths.

    Don't know and can't believe how the Lord has blessed me with my wife.

    Men and women ARE different. Men NEED respect and women NEED love. Of course the reverse is true, but at our core that's how God made us.

    Our marriage took a great turn for the better when I stopped trying to fix the flaws my wife has, and worked on my own instead.

    Now I realize I love her flaws, and me trying to "fix' them was at the bottom of much of our early marital stress.

    Good luck and God Bless!
