Three years ago I had gotten engaged to my amazing husband. While we have only been together three and a half years, our former marriages helped guide us to making a better, and healthier choice for us.
I had a list of what I did and did not want in a relationship and I know he had a list as well.
Being Christian's we knew no matter how well a person fit our list there was no "PERFECT" person out there. Christ was the only PERFECT man to walk the earth. Yet, I know people, women mostly who are looking for the absolute perfect man to sweep them off their feet. I have news for them. . . there is no such thing. No matter how the other person fits your list, they will still have flaws, we're human.
The true gauge of a relationship is how a couple navigates the weaknesses and how they encourage each other to strengthen the weaknesses.
If marriage or a serious relationship is your desire, remember it will be work, and it may be more than you are willing to put in.
Love is finding someone who knows all your flaws, mistakes, and weaknesses and still thinks you're amazing!
I am in no way saying that anyone woman or man should settle . . . I believe no one should settle, however, I believe that you can especially after a divorce get caught up in finding the "PERFECT" someone that you may miss out on someone wonderful. We all have flaws, baggage, sins, and you may just be the "RIGHT" someone for that person, but if you get so nit picky you may be really sorry.
I pray this post encourages, and uplifts whoever reads it.
Happy Valentine's Day
