Our society is addicted to romantic love. Romantic love is obsessive in nature. It's important that we move from the "in love" stage of marriage to the covenant love of marriage.
Inside each one of us is the potential to love; but often times we don't show that love for a variety of reason. It's going to require someone to take the initiative to love first. Why don't you become that person?
Christians sometimes criticize one another for the way they serve in the church? Realize that each person has a unique love language. If they express their love for God in their love language while serving in the church, don't criticize them for it.
What do you do when your spouse stays in the marriage because of his commitment, but not for love? The "in love" feeling doesn't last forever. But be grateful for his commitment! The book The 5 Love Languages can help build your love for each other.
When considering marriage, it's particularly difficult when you've kept your self pure, but your fiancé hasn't. Dr. Gary Chapman recommends counseling for him. If he acknowledges his wrong doing and seeks God's forgiveness, you, too must forgive him.
