8 Lies That Destroy Marriage {Marriage Monday}

Bill Elliff shares a powerful article over at Family Life ministries, explaining 8 common lies that will destroy our marriage if we buy into them:

Imagine meeting with an engaged couple a few weeks before they are married. With excitement they describe how they met and how their relationship developed. The husband-to-be proudly describes how he set up a perfect romantic evening so he could pop the big question.

Then they surprise you by saying, “We want to get married and have some children. At first we will feel a lot of love for each other. Then we’ll start arguing and hating each other. In a few years, we’ll get a divorce.”

Who would enter marriage intending to get a divorce? And yet, divorce is occurring at alarming rates. A large number of people in my church have been hurt deeply by divorce—they’ve been divorced themselves, or they’ve felt the pain of a parent or relative divorcing.

As common as divorce is, I’m convinced that most of them could be avoided. Mark this down on the tablet of your heart: Every wrong behavior begins with believing a lie.

    This is a nice article. It reinforces the concept that the truth shall set you free. I also believe that if more people recognized these lies and dealt with them properly that more marriages would indeed be saved

      I agree. The article does indeed reflect the broader “truth shall set you free” concept, which applies to virtually all areas of life. Having our eyes opened to the Truth is such a precious gift that benefits its beholders both in this life and eternity.
