RADIO PROGRAM No.59 - Maintaining a Harmonious Marriage
On this program a young couple from an eastern city in the United States told of their own experience. Because of the nature of the program their names were not used. They spoke as follows:
Betty: We had reached a point where we both agreed it was just impossible to go on living together. Dick and I had given this a great deal of thought, too. You see, we each felt that the person we had married didn't exist any more. But we had a small daughter to consider. Well, we finally decided that it would be better for the little girl to live happily with just one parent rather than in the midst of constant quarreling. I was making arrangements to return to my home town when, suddenly, I just couldn't leave without one more try. I remembered that we might turn to God for the answer, and that we could go to an authorized Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer. So I asked Dick, as a last favor, to go with me to a practitioner, even though he said later he had thought it would be a waste of time.
It seemed our problem had progressed to a point where things were beyond repair. I suppose in my heart I wanted some human advice, but the practitioner was wise enough not to give any. He simply showed us the truth about God and the truth about man as the child of God. He made me realize that the only solution for me lay in seeing Dick as he really was— the child of God. I also saw that I had been putting myself first in all our affairs.
