Expectations in Marriage
There are certain things that drive and motivate people to get married, and even to marry a particular person. Beyond the wedding day, there are many expectations that we have of marriage. Some of the expectations are based on ignorance of what marriage is, and can also be based on the fact that we have little knowledge of the other person. Some of expectations are reasonable and some are unreasonable. The expectations are sometimes based on what has been promised, what the Bible says, what we have seen at home or in other marriages that we admire. But mostly, they are the result of our own dreams about marriage, our own fantasies. It is unfortunate that at times these dreams have turn into never ending nightmares.
