Remember on your wedding day when you vowed to love your partner until you die? Or maybe you didn't do a typical vow like that but you still promised "FOREVER". It is important that you put that in mind when you are in a brink of giving up. I personally believe in the importance of honoring commitments. I remember that on my wedding day, my personalized vow included these:
"I vow to honor and respect you as my husband..." ; and
"In this life, you have God, you got me; you will never be by yourself".
In the presence of God and our families, I made those commitments; and I am determined to honor them. I have only been married for 9 months; so, what am I am trying to achieve talking about marriage?! Well, I am just trying to share an important attitude towards commitments and applying it to a sacred partnership we call marriage. Even if you have been married for many years or you have just started, like in my case, it is very important to acknowledge what you have committed to and to always remember to honor them.
Agree with what you have shared and aside from that, the relationship would also succeed if both parties would honour such commitment. And it should be a daily renewal of this commitment so that the flame of the relationship will keep on burning.
