Marriage commitment must be strong. It must be powerful! Many people marry understanding that they are making a commitment, but they believe the commitment will be relatively easily to keep. Those same people find out pretty quickly that keeping the marriage commitment is extremely challenging! When it is necessary to forgive your spouse for doing the same thing 490 times, that’s hard. When you are trying to be gentle in the face of someone who is not, you better have strong commitment. When you know that you are called to love your spouse, even when he or she has been spouting off his or her ingratitude, you better have commitment that isn’t easily overcome. When your spouse is diagnosed with long-term health difficulties, your commitment better have some muscle.
