How to Avoid Common Marriage Myths

 Are you believing a lie when it comes to your marriage relationship?

It’s possible. That’s what we call a marriage myth. Those are the commonly held beliefs that have a surprisingly big impact on your relationship if you buy into them.

Marriage was God’s idea, and like everything else He created, it hums with power. Fire will warm you or it can burn you to death. Water will quench your thirst or it can drown you. Marriage is the closest thing to Heaven on earth or the closest thing to Hell on earth. The results you get in marriage, as with anything else God has made, depend on one thing — how you handle it.

God created marriage and our ignorance of how to handle it (we’ll call that—having no head knowledge) can hurt our marriage relationship.
