Do you remember how it felt to be a newlywed? Finally having your man’s last name made you sparkle for days. You loved everything about this man. You were on cloud nine for weeks, anticipating making every meal, snuggling on the couch after a long day at work, and serving in church together. You thought nothing and no one could ever separate you two or dampen your happiness. You would be the happiest married couple out there.
But then real life sets in.
Then the honeymoon ends and everyday challenges arise just like they do for everyone else.
Financial pressure, long work hours, inlaws and simply dealing with the toilet seat always being left up make you irritated with the man you married. Instead of being happy, you are confronted with the realities of an imperfect union between two imperfect people.
Did you make the wrong decision marrying him? Is this all that life has to offer?
Is there anything that you can do to save your marriage, to keep that flame of love burning strong?
Yes, yes, yes!
Becoming a wise wife will help you navigate through marriage and life with more joy than you thought possible.
Yes, you can have joy when you go to use the bathroom at 3 in the morning and nearly fall in because he left the seat up again. You can have joy when your man declares a no spending week (or month!). You can even have joy when he calls to tell you he will be late for dinner again.
Joy is the state of your heart regardless of your circumstances.
