What Would You Write?

posted by Michele Olson

Do you enjoy these types of things circulating from your friends on the internet? (Are you old enough so that it makes sense?)
Remember when:

Memory was something you lost with age

An application was for employment

A program was a TV show

A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano

A web was a spider's home

A virus was the flu

A CD was a bank account

A hard drive was a long trip on the road

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

Gets you thinking about how some things have really changed in their meaning.

What about marriage?

What would you put if you were putting something together that started out:

Remember when marriage…

How you would answer that would probably have a lot to do with your current marital status…your age…your upbringing…and what you have observed happening in the relationships around you.

Would it evoke feelings of nostalgia for something that you think marriage has lost that it used to have?

Or would you think that many things are finally changing for the better when it comes to marriage?

Would your response be funny, sad or a combination?

What kind of commentary would you make if you were writing a piece called: Remember when marriage….

Let us hear your thoughts!

remember when marriage was for a lifetime? said...

Thanks for the comment Jenifer...
Hopefully with more people participating in marriage education before they get married and all during their marriage...that dream can become more of a reality once again!

Remember when marriage was sacred, respected, cherished and aspired to by all.

While infidelity has been with us since the biblical days, it seems today that there is no shame in it. People have no respect for their vows nor do they have any for the vows of others. Back in bible times - King David was ashamed at what he did and that he hid it. Nowadays the betrayed spouse is blamed by the infidels.

I am happy to say that we are overcoming this in our marriage but I found that as we are working on our reconciliation - it is a simple fault of respect for our marriage by my spouse and the infidel they hooked up with - who by the way was married too. There is no shame and that is a sad state. said...

Thanks for sharing your heartfelt thoughts.
