Why did you get married?
Rose: Truth be told, I was a young woman just enjoying life the best I could. We were involved in a relationship but never really talking about marriage. My older sister got married, my good friend who was much younger got married so I was beginning to feel left out. Wilton and I discussed marriage and decided why not? I loved him but was I in-love I can’t really say; what I can say is I wanted to be like everyone else and that is why I got married.
Wilton: If I were to really be honest, the reason I got married was because my girlfriend and I was having sex every day, and I thought that this was the way that things were going to be.
What do you enjoy most about being married?
Rose:What I enjoy most about being married is knowing that I have a MAN that loves me for me, inspite of my flaws. I enjoy the laughter and the find that I can reach over and feel a nice pair of thighs beside me. I enjoy the fact that I have a best friend who is also a prayer partner, a lover and a provider.
Wilton: The things that I enjoy most about being married is the time that I spend with my wife, and also the quality time that I spend with my children and grandchildren.
What’s one important thing being married has taught you?
Rose: The biggest lesson I have learned and is still learning is that as long as we continue to put God as the head of our marriage and accept the fact that it is not about me having my way things will begin to fall into place. There is no perfect marriage, we both have different thoughts, opinions and ideas but we can come together as one and work those things out Anything worth having is worth fighting for and yes, we are worth it our marriage is worth it so I will fight to the finish.
Wilton: I have learned that your spouse is not your property, but your partner in and should be for life. As men too often we try to control and dominate our wives, and in time this can lead to bitterness and resentment. On the other hand, if you love, cherish, and respect your wife, not only will she be your lover, but your friend as well. Look it from this perspective; the only person that you can truly control in life is yourself, and if we allow our wives to be themselves, then they will not only respect themselves, but us as well. I think that these two scriptures sums it up best:
Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
So, if you love and respect your wife, then I also believe that she will love, respect and reverence you!
