Ian Grant, (NZ relationship expert), has been quoted to say “Marry the person you love and two years later you love the person you marry”.
Have you wondered why this is? Isn’t love an emotion/passion that burns within, or does it simply burn out!? Or like the large portion ending in divorce – simply crash!
Love is a mixture of things. Yes, love is a feeling, emotion or passion – changing like the seasons. Created and destroyed – people everywhere seemingly ‘falling in and out of love’. But love is also a verb, (an action) – something we do – as in a loving act. And most importantly, when the feelings are in the negative – love is a choice! So let us ponder that further.
We live with our feelings/emotions, but should we be led by them? Feelings are important indicators of what is going on inside us, but if we allow them to be the drivers in our marriage (car), then we will be in for a crash. They make great passengers in a car, and only that, because they are not reliable. So the question is today – who is driving your car?
