Love and War - Married Life 101

Wifey and I attended our first marriage lesson last Friday. Before you get a shock and wonder what is wrong in such a short period of time. Well, there isn’t anything amiss. We are not attending the lessons because we are having problems; we are just hoping that attending it can help us avoid most of the problems that is common among married couples.

I was invited by a “big sister” in office to attend these lessons which were organized by her church. The lessons were meant for married couples or even couples who were going to be married. Although I am not a Christian, I readily agreed. Luckily Wifey feels that it is important too. 
I mean, people learnt how to count in school, learnt about science in school, shouldn’t we attend lessons on marriage which is one of the most important things in life?

It is one of those read, watch short video and discuss formats. The material that we will be using for the next few weeks is Love & War: Finding the marriage you've dreamed of by John and Staci Eldredge

The key points that stuck in my head after the session?
 Love is making a choice to stay together. You need to fight and work at keeping your marriage. The key is that whatever obstacles or difficulties which may arise, remember that Love is making a choice to stay together when it seems much easier to give up and run away.

I would like to share with all couples The MOST important point that was highlighted by the pastor.

“The secret to a happy marriage requires 






lots of lingerie.”
I’m kidding. The pastor DID NOT say that!
But he should! Hahaha...

That was said by Singer-songwriter Robin Thicke that I read in the papers. 
Do you know who he is? I don’t. 

Think he’s in the wrong career, he should be a philosopher!
