MARRIAGE, AND THE FOREVER HONEYMOON
how YOU can make it work!
is a lifetime partnership based on many things, including: Faith,
Commitment, Need, and Communications. When a marriage works,
it’s the greatest sustained experience and driving force in
life. And when it fails, the breakup and lasting after-effects can
be the most depressing imaginable.
Married and Honeymooning in Cartagena, Colombia”, is only
the beginning of the: “getting to know you”, lifetime
experience called: marriage. The next line of the popular show tune:
“getting to know all about you”, will never happen.
You will never really know your partner, and therefore, to be successful,
your marriage must be based on: “faith”.
The faith that each partner has in the other, can propel your marriage
into a wonderful and growing lifetime experience. Faith prevails
over: embarrassment, rumor and jealousy.
personal commitment, toward making a success
of your marriage, becomes greater with each “difference”
introduced into the marriage. Major differences can be: economic,
cultural, educational, religious, racial. etc. Each and every difference
will be minimized, and finally “accepted”, as long as
both partners remain continually committed to making their marriage
inter-cultural romances, the primary reason for marriage is often
the personal need, for economic improvement.
A European or North American partner who marries a Latino partner
must accept that the primary reason for the marriage may
have less to do with “love” than with personal economic
improvement. The blessed partner, with an economic advantage, should
have less difficulty in adjusting emotionally, for it is easier,
and more fun, in a loving relationship, to give, than to receive.
Once the marriage has progressed beyond the need
to feel economically, or socially secure, the need for each others
companionship and love, will be able grow unimpeded.
for entering into marriage are many, and complex. There is only
one principal cause of failed marriages: poor communications.
When open (without secrets) communications occur on a full time
basis, between both partners, the relationship can grow more quickly
into a lasting marriage. When communication involves language differences,
it is impossible to accurately describe “feelings”,
and therefore these couples require a much higher initial effort
of sustained commitment and faith. The educational and emotional
process of communication: teaching, learning, understanding, and
accepting each other’s language, cultural and religious differences
will eliminate any pre-existing racial prejudices.
what about having: “good luck” in your marriage?
Luck is What YOU Make It.
