    You only have a certain amount of emotional energy. In a conversation where you’re trying to resolve conflict, you can either use that energy to fix the blame or you can use that energy to fix the problem. You don’t have enough energy to do both. So you’ve got to ask yourself what’s more important, to blame the other person or to resolve the conflict.

    If you’re dating and you’re prolonging a relationship that you know is going nowhere, don’t continue it. “But I won’t have anybody to take me out on Friday night,” you say. A bad marriage is a million times worse than not going out on Friday night! The longer you’re in an unhealthy dating relationship, the more difficult it’s going to be to get out of it.

    If you wait for the perfect wife or the perfect husband, it isn’t going to just happen. Let me tell you why: We’re all broken. That’s OK, because God still loves you. But you need to understand that anybody you marry will be broken.

    God created marriage for the construction of society. Marriage is the fundamental building block of every community, church, state, nation, society, and culture. If you know anything about history, you know that where marriages are strong, cultures and nations and empires are strong. You know that wherever marriages and families are weak, cultures and nations are in decline. We know that the more marriages are devalued, the more a nation is in decline.

    Studies have shown that if children grow up without a mom and dad, there’s increased risk that they’re going to fail in school.

And it increases the risk that they will divorce or bear children outside of marriage.
