In love for a lifetime?


Proverbs 5:18 “Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth.”


Is it possible to stay in love for a lifetime or is this simply an utopian idea and a lie? Is it true that routine can kill love?


These are some of the many questions you must have already heard and have probably asked yourself.


Here are some true and some false statements: 



  • True: Yes, it is possible to stay in love with each other for a lifetime! 

  • True: Routine can kill love, even between two Christians. 

  • False: Once married, if he/she sincerely loves me, he/she will understand what I need. 

  • False: Love must always be spontaneous, never planned ahead of time.


We have all been fooled by statements like these. They made us believe that once we were in love and married everything would be simple and flow easily between the husband and the wife.


Love is not magic. Love is a decision, a solemn promise made between two persons before God on the day of their wedding. Marriage can be described as a construction site, the work resumes every morning that God gives us to live together.
