God Want Your Marriage To Be Fun

This is the continuation of the book that I am reading about marriage...

Marriage is definitely serious business, not to be taken lightly or to be thought of as temporary or just until the romance fades. But God wants you also to have fun. Marriage is a relationship with the person who means more to you than any other relationship you will ever have. This person is your soulmate who knows and cares about you better than anyone (even your mother). So be joyful, be playful. There's an old song that says, " Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative. " Do that. When life is good, enjoy it. Learn to be content with what you have and live in the moment. Don't misunderstand me, you need to have dreams and make plans for your future, and God has promised us a great future (Jeremiah 29:11), but be sure you enjoy getting there. Too many couples get so wrapped up in what will be that they miss the fun they can have along the way. Most of the fun is in achieving your dreams.
When you laugh, laugh together. Laughter with each other and at what's happening in life will get you through a lot. Never have fun at your partner's expense. Be sensitive to each other's needs and "sore spots." Don't make fun of the fact that he's not handy with a hammer; don't criticize her cooking; don't make fun of a weight gain. But do learn to laugh at yourself.
Try new things too: Go on an adventure, drive to a new town and see something different. In marriage you can explore each other's interests as well as your sexuality. God doesn't limit your joy - you do.

Hope you enjoy reading it.
