It can’t just be MY friends….

It may have been mentioned earlier and often on this blog, but it bears repeating. There is a big attack on marriages in our society. In fact, I’ll take that a step further.  When we weren’t looking, mainstream media began to encourage the dissolution of marriage as an institution AND if you happened to be committed to the ball and chain…well, it’s only a marriage. You have the right to be happy and if that other person isn’t doing it for you anymore, you know, take matters into your own hands.

That belief system can sneak right into our brains and take residence where common sense used to live if we aren’t diligent in shunning it. Admittedly, it can be difficult to shun because it’s everywhere. Here’s a challenge for you…watch some primetime comedies or dramas and see how long it is before infidelity is mentioned or, worse yet, demonstrated for your viewing pleasure. I’ve become ridiculously hypersensitive to this and here’s why…

there is an attack on marriages. Friends of mine, friends of friends. Far too many stories of people throwing in the towel on their families and walking away. Infidelity isn’t the only thing the enemy uses to fight marriages..there is a seemingly endless list of distractions that causes a person to stop investing in their spouse.

Yep, I guess I’m just sick of it. Sick of watching people suffer….especially sick of watching kids try to recoup after mom and dad make a mess out of innocent lives. I could go on and on about what can happen to the daughters of these dissolved unions; promiscuity, dwindled confidence in men, poor choice after poor choice. The sons? Repeated behavior, lack of respect for girls, poor choice after poor choice.

Ok, now stepping down off my soapbox.

Praying for a change in the families I know this is affecting right now. Praying for a change in the families I’m not aware of and praying, ultimately, that we all keep our eyes on God. If it doesn’t honor God, then walk away. No….don’t walk. Run.

I just love a good love story.

And I just despise unhappy endings.
