When my fiancé and I announced our engagement, family...
When my fiancé and I announced our engagement, family members on both sides were unhappy and tried to dissuade us. This was primarily for religious and ethnic reasons. When we did marry, his family disowned him.
Although I was not the one who had been disowned, I felt rejected and worthless, and feared that I had caused pain to an entire family. I began to pray about this. The book of Ruth in the Bible tells a story of family strength; Ruth believed in one God—the God of her husband's people—and was not turned back by the human difficulties resulting from what she believed in her heart. She remained with her mother-in-law Naomi, and in so doing a family of her own appeared to be what she must sacrifice. But as a result of Ruth's virtue all were blessed, and she received a husband and a child of her own.
