Where Is Your Marriage Going?
When asked if their marriage has goals, many couples would wonder what you meant. Think of a marriage like a vehicle. In order to take a trip as a family it would be important to have a destination in mind. It would be especially important to have discussed ahead of time where you wanted to go. You wouldn’t want to spend the trip wandering aimlessly,, nor would it be good if each spouse had a different destination in mind and never discussed it with the other. That would spell certain disaster for sure.
Many couples in the dating years have the common goal of marriage but where does it go beyond that? We tend to have individual goals of where we see ourselves and what we want to do with our lives but what about common goals for our marriage and family?
Take time to think and talk through with your spouse this idea of goals for your marriage. Check back as we discuss this topic further through this week.
