From what I have read by CM posters in the forums, I believe that CM members are filled with "hokum", the idealistic perspective instead of the realistic perspective.
Of course there are "happy times" in marriage but the reality is that MOST of the time married life is very mundane and at times downright difficult.
Because of today's no fault divorce laws it is SO easy to just throw in the towel when the mundane and difficult seem intolerable. Just think if Christ had "thrown in the towel" when he was called by His Father to "suffer and die" for our sins.
And to the poster that suggested married life after two years certainly should have more "joy" than "sorrow"; what doesn't kill you will make you stronger. Marriage was NEVER about "happiness"; it is about "sacrifice" so that we can become more like the one who died for our sins. I can preach from the pulpit til I am blue in the face but some of you will never get it And I will leave with my favorite quote from one of my favorite saints, St. Thomas Aquinas, "Love is to will the good of another".
