I have people ask me so many times; "what it takes to have a Dream Marriage?" Wow! What a HUGE question. I think there are so many factors to having the Dream Marriage.
1) Being the Right Person
2) Finding the Right Person
3) Constantly working on your marriage
4) Getting to know your spouse
Listen, a Dream Marriage doesn't just happen after you say "I do." That would be too easy ... marriage takes a lot of work, a lot of sacrifice, and a lot of love! And at the center of it all FAITH IN GOD.
The God Factor for me is huge, obviously being a pastor right, but honestly even if I wasn't a pastor God plays a major role in my marriage. And primarily because God plays a major role in my morality. I don't do whatever I feel like doing, or even say whatever I feel like saying because I love God, and I truly want to live in such a way that brings honor to Him. I'm not saying I am a model Christian ... trust me, I am just saying that my relationship with Christ has greatly impacted the life I live and the choices I make. And they would be much different if I wasn't a Christ follower.
So I am a firm believer in God being an important part of any relationship!
