Without a man and a woman there is NO MARRIAGE. Gauntlet across the face. Whack!
Man and Wife.
One man, one woman, one lifetime. That's the perfect plan. PERFECT.
Unfortunately sinful folks can't execute perfectly. But we can execute well if we are willing to take responsibility and not make excuses for our failings.
A marriage is a union, but not all unions are marriages.
Folks always seem these days to want go around tinkering with that which is not broken. Marriage is great and it works for those who work it. The problem is with the people, not the concept.
The problem is with that prideful, self-centered, self-righteous and the corrupt people who give marriage a bad name. The prenuptial signing, promiscuity endorsing, self-centered jack azzes that sacrifice their families for their feelings; they are the problem.
These losers give the fuel and the fire to the fakers, the whiners, the quitters and all those who make excuses as to why their marriage or another's marriage is/was a disaster. Don't be in that number.
Some folks enter into covenant without any understanding of sacrifice, the guts to face the hurt, and commitment that is takes to be successful at it. That's not a marriage problem; that's a people problem.
There are plenty of folks out there not living to their potential. More than half the marriages in the secular world these days end in separation or divorce. It is easier to consider marriage the problem and not people the problem. This is done because insecure and self-righteous people hate accountability. Hate it.
It's easy to say a man and a woman together forever is not possible, right? So don't try. Excuses? Yes, and poor ones by the pound. The easy way out.
It takes people of a larger heart and a larger vision to buck that nonsense and have a victorious marriage that withstands and survives all the crap the world, the flesh and the devil throws in that direction.http://www.crosswalk.com/family/marriage...
It has to be SUPER to work exceptional and beyond expectation in the natural. Otherwise the manifestation will be ineffective or mediocre at best. Results to be trodden under foot or spewed out of the mouth of that which is greater than ourselves are a waste of time, life and resources. That is no way to victory.
Some folks, not all folks, but some folks (and I didn't name any names) have the audacity to attempt to pervert that which is meant to be sacred and redefine it into something which it is not. That's called WICKED. Like a wicker chair. Twisted.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im9XuJJXy...
Twist? Get it?
News Flash: It cannot be done. Not in reality.
The counterfeit is never the real. NEVER. Regardless of how many folks peddle it, or how many times folks try to cash it. It won't cash. It won't spend. Nor should it. After all, why should it? It's fake...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN1RYACiX...

….and it always will be FAKE. Not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, Just calling it as it is.
If "alternative" relationships help to ease the pain of life, give certain folks the love they are missing or understanding they are forever longing for, anyone would be less than compassionate if they didn't at least try to understand where they are coming from. Right?
Why is it that the biggest proponents (Not all but most) of counterfeit views of marriage outside of those relationships are either singles, shack-ups or divorced? There's no mystery. Failures like to run in packs.
They give comfort to the quitters, solace to the losers and excuses to the timid and fearful.
Understanding and tolerance does not have to be lock-step endorsement or mandated. That's not compassion or tolerance, that's stupid. Why would anyone in their right mind expect, need or desire that anyway unless they come from a point of ultimate insecurity?
One can tolerate another's religion or political affiliation or viewpoint without having to endorse it. Why is that so difficult for some people to understand when it comes to marriage? Hard headedness, that why.
Like I've said before, I don't care if someone wants to marry a shoe. Go ahead. But that is still not a real marriage. Foam and froth at the mouth all you want. That changes nothing.
Tolerance has to do with thought. But thought does not always lead to the same place. Does it?
Tolerance goes a long way but tolerance NEVER has to do with unilateral endorsement of anything. There are bigots and racists on this site that are tolerated. That in no way however means one must roll over and submit to their secular, Darwinian and hedonistic non-sense. That's for suckers only.
The divine covenant of marriage works. It works perfectly in my life and the lives of many, many, many others. Y'all can cuss and fuss all you want. Foam at the mouth. Go ahead. Those are still FACTs.
Marriage as a cold, legal contract is a joke. It rarely stays the course and is most often riddled with avoidable problems and failures. Anyone who is dependent on the state or local government to define for them what marriage is has lost their mind anyway. Some things are self-evident.
Also, unless there are physical problems or a choice not to, healthy and authentic marriages produce children. Nations are built on families and authentic families start with a man and a woman. Period. That's how we all got here.
A nation is only as strong as its families. It makes sense for us to go for the best and not just settle due to confusion or pain. Settling for less than the best is what victims and folks who have given up do.
On top of that, real and intimate sex is better with a man and a woman for obvious physical reasons for some, and not so obvious spiritual reasons for others. There's the rub.
The most satisfying, most frequent, and most meaningful sex is between a man and his wife in ravenous and passionate LOVE with each other. On all levels: spirit, soul and body. Every aspect of human being and being human.
I challenge ANYONE here to dispute me on that one. Personally and in detail. Okay? If not, shut up.
In trust and in privacy, where each participant sees their goal as to meet the other's need not (simply) their own. That's the lick. Get it? But that's not all there is to it. If that's all you've got, than it's way too shallow and doomed to failure so watch out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fs5ziMI1...
Other folks can do what they want, but they should have enough sense not to argue with divine providence. That's a futile endeavor.
"Anything goes and every lifestyle choice should be supported universally by everyone, everywhere and without exception."
That particular moronic thought pattern has shown its ugly head here at Rant Rave in the past. Too bad for the purveyors of that garbage, it's simply not true. It's a LIE and it will continue to be a lie regardless of how many times it's put out there. Moral and ethical relativism are the destroyers of society not the salvation of it.
Let's hear some personal, HAPPY MARRIAGE TESTIMONIES from the Rant Rave community. That would be wonderful and encouraging. Shut the whiners down.
Also I'm not forcing or attempting to force anything on anyone. Let me get that out of the way before some dunkoff attempts to take it there. I am keeping it real. People can be jealous, attempt to ridicule, disparage, or whatever but that is YOUR problem, not mine nor anyone else's.
Folks can buy into abiogenic fantasies and science-fiction comic book fairy tales all they like. That does not change THE REAL. Man and woman beats any other combination out there hands down. HANDS….DOWN…PERIOD….OK?

However, recognize the REAL. Give respect even if you choose to do something else.
Even if one does not endorse traditional marriage and the nuclear family, do yourself a favor and don't hate. Hatred and phobias are for losers.
Either that or don't be too surprised when you end up looking like a fool, having to deal with the consequences of a fool, due to your own foolishness.
Thank you for reading. Be blessed.
