To marry is a full commitment of yourself to another person, no marriage is perfect. Face your differences. Learn to live with them. And grow. You will find help at hand and from beyond.
[A way to live Mark 10:2-16, one of the readings in many churches for the Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost from the Revised Common Lectionary for 10/4/15. (We start before Sunday to help you prepare for Sunday.) Asked about divorce, Jesus teaches that the two will become one in marriage. He emphasizes the need for the two to stay married. Where the twelve disciples keep children away from Jesus, he insists they be allowed to come. We must be open to receiving children. We must become like a child to receive the kingdom of God.]
