THE SECRET OF COMMITMENT Commitment is like an anchor that keeps the marriage steady during stormy times.
Husbands and wives who are committed to their marriage view it as a permanent bond, and that creates a sense of security between them. Each spouse is confident that the other will honour the union, even in difficult times.

WHY COMMITMENT MATTERS IN MARRIAGE
Many people go into marriage knowing that they have a fall back plan – divorce. They concluded in their minds that marriage is no more for better for worse. When problem arises, they divorce.
When someone just entered marriage and already thinking about the possibility of divorce, they lack commitment from the start.
When confronted with problems, spouses without commitment are more likely to conclude, “We were not made for each other” and find a way to get out of the marriage.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO FIX THIS ISSUE
You need to test yourself using these checklist:
When you are having misunderstandings or when in the middle of a dispute…..
- Do you find yourself regretting that you married your spouse?
- Do you daydream about being with someone else?
- Do you say things such as “I’m leaving you” or “I’m going to find someone who appreciate me”?
If you answered yes to one or more of those questions, this is the time you need to strengthen your commitment.
You need to discuss with your spouse.
Use the following as a guide on what to discuss:
- Has the level of commitment in our marriage decreased? If so, why?
- What steps can we take now to strengthen our commitment.
You can also:
- Write an occasional love note to your spouse.
- Show your commitment by displaying the photos of your spouse on your phone. You can also display it on your desk at work (if you have an office).
- Communicate with your spouse on phone each day while you are at work or apart.
Nevertheless, the fact is, marriage can be a rewarding and permanent bond.
Therefore, what God has joined together, let no man put asunder. (Matthew 19:6)
