Stages of marital love

Which stage of love have you reached? 

I’ll tell you mine. We’re passed the young love stage and almost now enjoying realistic love…and we gonna stay there for a long time! How cool? 😂🙈

I discovered recently that marital love passes through five stages

young love: years 1–2

realistic love: years 3–10

settled love: years 11–25

renewed love: years 26–35

inconceivable love: years 36+

But what’s important is that you make a decision to enjoy every stage of your marriage. Decide to cherish every moment. Let the beauty of your spouse always be the standard for beauty. Together, break out of the everyday routine again and again. 

Believe in and be amazed at the miracle of love, your marriage! It is the biggest adventure on earth! 

A New Year is Here!

Happy New Year Everyone!

May the birth of the new year breathe new life into every aspect of our being! May we be so alive to see the realization of our dreams and resolutions. May we find a renewed love for God even as His Grace abounds for our daily needs. May the life we live in the year be a lifestyle of worship, one that fulfills God’s holy purpose and that is pleasing and acceptable to  God.

And may we be reminded as we live through the year that:

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
2 Corinthians 3:5-6

May God watch over us and our relationships and marriages!

Best wishes and gratitude for staying true to Everything Marriage over the past year!
