Anyone can get married, but what sort of marriage do you want to have? Anyone can have children, what will be the outcome of those kids? There are many people who are alive today. What sort of life are they living? We've seen many people, celebrity couples included with all their looks, talents, fame, and money get married and divorce after a few years. The question isn't about how awesome the wedding day was or how lovely the bridemaids looked. It's not just about doing something or having something. The question is, "Is it made to last?" Or will it be one of those things that crumble with time, pressure, or circumstances? You only get out of something what you put into it. No skyscraper suddenly dropped on the scene.
Take a building for example, the greater and stronger you want the structure to be, the deeper you need to dig before you lay a foundation for building. The higher the building, the stronger the foundation has to be. Do you want your marriage to last? Do you want your children to turn out right and be worthy contributors to the world they live in? Do you want to live a life that overcomes challenges? Then you need the necessary information and knowledge that will help you reinforce the relationships of your life. Why do most marriages fail? Most things in life fail because people fail to plan. You know what they say, "If you fail to plan, you have planned to fail." A lot of people plan for many things.
They plan their careers, they draw out plans for a business. Oh, and let's not forget, they definitely plan their weddings. But I've noticed that many couples never make a plan to strengthen and ensure that their relationship lasts. But what is a plan without a purpose? The reason why we make plans is because we want to achieve a certain purpose or goal, isn't it? People make business plan because they want to achieve certain goals.
Before you can make a good plan for your marriage to last, you need to know the things that you want to achieve in getting marriage. What's the purpose for this marriage? Does your marriage have a purpose at all? These questions are very important things to examine if you want to make sure that you're building your marriage to last. Remember if you fail to plan, you have planned to fail.
