Your Marriage is Not a Hollywood Romance
It may seem a paradox, but marriage is more important than love. Why? Because marriage is the normal situation out of which true and abiding love arises.
The popular notion, championed by fiction and motion pictures, is that love is primary, and marriage is nothing more than a dull anticlimax. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve found that real love hardly exists outside the context of marriage. How could it? Real love is a slow growth coming from unity of life and purpose. Love is a product. It is the thing to be created by mutual service and sacrifice.
