Recently, one man was telling me that he has done everything possible but he could not understand why his marriage was not working? Of a truth, the man is not alone as there are many whose marriages are not working even though they were trying hard.
I was quick to point out to him that for his marriage to work that he must sincerely work on his marriage for it to work. Working on your marriage means to be ready and willing to pay the necessary prize of doing the right thing in their marriage.
In other words, some couples, the failure of their marriages are as a result of doing the wrong things in their marriages. That is to say that many couples are doing what they ought to do and failing to do what is expected of them in their marriages.
For your marriage to work, couples must necessarily show enough commitment to each other and to their marriage. It is the high level of commitment to each other and to their marriage that goes a long way to making a marriage to work.
When you talk of commitment, it means resolve of couples to pay the necessary prize or sacrifice to keep their marriage going no matter the situation. In other words, the resolve to sink or swim with your spouse is what commitment is all about.
One other thing about commitment is that it is for life of any marriage. The problem with some couples is that they were committed to each other and to their marriage at the early days of their marriages but tend to lower the level of their commitment as the years of their marriages go by.
For the marriage of couples to work, they must in no way lower the level of their commitment to each other and to their marriages but rather they should be renewing their commitment all the time.
To renew your commitment to your marriage means making a personal commitment to do whatever it takes and make the sacrifices necessary for a successful and exciting marriage.
One thing about renewing our commitment to our marriage is that it is easy to be committed when we are happy in our marriage or when things are moving fine in our marriages.
However, and in another development, one major issue about the level of our commitment is that it must be hundred percent. But in reality, some couple does not show hundred percent level of commitment as some have some reservation on their commitment.
The main reason why some couples don’t show hundred percent level of commitment is fear of the unknown. Some couples have some reservations in their commitment of what they feel they would hold on to assume if their marriage should fail.
But that is not what it should be as couples should show hundred percent commitments as to show their resolve to either sink or swim with their spouse.
One other thing about commitment is that couples should not look at each other or compare the level of their commitment to each and marriage. Rather, couples should strive to be equally committed to their marriage.
Couples who are equally committed to their marriage and to each other, it is a proven fact that such couples easily and tend to resolve their differences quickly and marriages of such people hardly fail in divorce.
I wish to ask you, “To what extent or level are you committed to your marriage and spouse? Once couples show enough commitment to each other and to their marriage, their marriages will surely blossom as they will be enjoying a successful and exciting marriage.
if couples could resolve to be more committed, their marriages will surely take a positive turn around. Be committed to your marriage and spouse.
