    That state of our unions saddens me greatly. Whatever happened to perserverence to the marriage promise, forsaking all others and commitment to making things better? At best, what you have in this situation is an affair waiting to happen.

    My people, keep in mind that the children are watching everything we do. They will do as we do; not as we say. If sleeping in separate bedrooms and existing in a dead marriage is what you want the kids to do, keep doing it. If not, then you're going to have to learn the skills to show them something positive.

    Generational marriage curses are real. That's why we're in the situation we're in now. The folks messed things up for us by their behavior. If you want something different, you're going to have to provide the example in the family of a loving marriage that someone would want to be in for the rest of their life.

    Why fight for love from someone that doesn't feel the same way about you? I'm sure lot of people contemplate that question everyday. Are we selling ourselves short by "settling" for any partner, until the "right" partner reveals him/herself? All too often, while talking to couples, I realize they don't really seem to be "into" each other. And it's the social aspect of just being in a relationship which keeps them together despite any issues they have with each other. And then….how many "side" relationships will they have before they realize that they maybe using their current relationship as a crutch to ever really separating, become single again, and start on a new committed relationship with someone else.

      I think that we give up to easy on love. People need help and people need to be committed to the process of working on their relationship to really see if it's time to move on. I think that if they are unwilling to work..then it's time for you to walk.
