“Show love and respect in your marriage.”

Two weeks ago, my parents celebrated their 35th anniversary together. While it has been no walk in the park, I am very grateful and fortunate to have both of my parents still in my life and still in the same union.

Over the past year, I have had so many friends get engaged and quite a few have already gotten married.
I personally have always felt that marriage is a heavy subject since you are no longer caring for yourself but you take on the responsibility of taking care of someone else and all that comes with them.
I can’t put into words what a marriage is or what it really means since I myself am not married but a brother once gave a public discourse at my local Kingdom Hall that I really enjoyed and I took a few notes to remind myself of a few things when it comes to marriage that I would like to share.
