Who Says the Honeymoon Must End?

We think of the honeymoon as the beginning of the marriage—that initial burst of physical love—that period of passionate ecstasy between the wedding ceremony and the return to the normal responsibilities of everyday life. Nothing is wrong with thinking about the honeymoon in this way. But it does imply that the honeymoon is only for newlyweds and is only temporary. 

Who Says the Honeymoon Must End?

Immediately upon the mention of the word “honeymoon,” most people picture a time of intimate romance and unrestrained physical affection between newlyweds. There is nothing wrong with such a concept, except for what it implies—that such a show of physical affection is brief…is only for newlyweds…and is necessarily temporary, passing away with the passing of time. But God’s plan is for married couples to enjoy such delights without shame or reluctance until “death do us part.”

Commitment is the Key (Part 2)

As bombs dropped and enemies threatened to take over his country, Britain’s prime minister, Winston Churchill, understood that the war would not be won by giving up the fight. Surrender is not an option if you plan to win. In a world where marriage is under attack by pressures outside and inside the Christian church, God’s people cannot abdicate. We have a responsibility to ourselves, to our world, and to our God to stand strong in our marital commitment.
