Marriage will not always be rosy.

I had this related experience this morning while going to work. If you're quite familiar with Lagos Danfo drivers and their nonchalant or deliberate attitude, you'll know that most times they ration their fuel usage. 
.
I took a bus from Sabo to Obalende and while we just drove past Adekunle, the last bus stop before you join the 3rd mainland bridge, the vehicle made a funny sound which everyone concluded that it was a fuel issue. The drivertried to raise the throttle so that it can move, but alas, it came to a halt and we were all grounded.
.
It was in a dangerous spot where cars were moving at their top speed. Some passengers were already calling those whom they know as to join them to Obalende. Me wey no get anybody, I just sidon jejely hoping for a miracle, in fact prayer no enter my mind.
.
The driver got down, he was a bit relaxed and he went to the rear side of the bus. He blew fuel into one of the valve that supplied fuel into the engine and later went to turn on the ignition. In less than three minutes, after the whole drama, the engine picked up and we left.
.
Six passengers could not make it with us into the journey. Why? They opted out because of the little challenge we had. Do I blame them?
.
The kind of mentality you have concerning marriage will determine your experience in it. What kind of mentality do you hold about marriage? To quit when the going gets tough or to fight to resolve issues in spite of all odds?
.
Marriage will not always be rosy but your mindset about it determines the outcome of your marriage. No one leaves the kitchen because of the heat generated while cooking, you stay put until what you're cooking is done.
.
Once you've done the greatest part of marriage - marrying the right person, then fight for your marriage in the place of prayer and patience. Divorce is NOT an option because the author of marriage hates it.
.
Men can dissolve marriages but God hates divorce. Marry right. Be patient and prayerfully fight for your marriage.
