RADIO PROGRAM NO. 263-Anchoring a Drifting Marriage
Questioner: In many marriages tastes and interests change, and at times most couples feel some drifting apart. Doesn't marriage by its very nature involve a certain amount of ups and downs?
Speaker: I think any partnership has adjustment periods. I recall reading an article by a divorce lawyer wherein he said, "Marriage merely shows people up" (This Week Magazine, Nov. 20,1966). It's not marriage that fails; it's people. People do have their ups and downs, especially when they are looking for what they can get out of marriage instead of what they can put into it. You know, it's a fifty-fifty proposition. Some feel it's sixty-forty or even worse.
Suppose that a couple, instead of looking for what they might get out of marriage, were dedicating their years together to a mutual discovery of man's spiritual nature and then took time to appreciate, express gratitude for, and cherish the Godlike qualities in each other.
