Dear friends, let me ask you a question:if your spouse suddenly became disabled either by illness or accident, what would you do? Would you still love them?
This is a question that was on my mind throughout the week-end
while I was out of the city.
Effectively, Emilia and I were out of the city. We joined two other couples and a Priest to facilitate a Marriage workshop. I believe in marriage.
Twenty-two couples and a Sister attended the workshop during which we equipped them with tools for responsible decisions in their marriages.
We talked about happiness in marriage; and among the many lessons that came out were: to love is a decision. If you want to be happy in your marriage, take the decision to love; be the first to love; and love unconditionally.
Secondly, You have to learn to communicate effectively with your spouse. Effective communication is a big key to a successful marriage.
These are wonderful lessons aren’t they? Indeed! now, let’s go back to our question: if your spouse suddenly became disabled either by illness or by an accident, what would you do? Would you still love them?
How would you react if a physically disabled person came up to you and said they wanted to marry you or your child?
