Article: Marriage Isn't For You
I love sharing articles that build people and their relationships. I came across Seth Adams Smith's Marriage Isn't For You in my Facebook newsfeed and thought it was worthy of sharing:
"...marriage isn’t for you. You don’t marry to make yourself happy, you marry to make someone else happy. More than that, your marriage isn’t for yourself, you’re marrying for a family. Not just for the in-laws and all of that nonsense, but for your future children. Who do you want to help you raisethem? Who do you want to influence them? Marriage isn’t for you. It’s not about you. Marriage is about the person you married."
