It’s a lot to prepare for, and to be honest….I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. That is until I sat down and sketched out a plan. Putting all the “to-do’s” in sequence helped me relax. Seeing that certain things would happen, that would allow for other things to happen later helped me find focus.
This same holds true in marriage.
A lot of us believe that once the honeymoon is over, our marriage is complete. But marriage is a forever journey. It’s a complex relationship that grows and changes. Because it’s two people who hopefully grow, but for sure will change.
My wife and I didn’t want to just date forever, we wanted more for and from our relationship.
So, we got engaged. But, we still wanted more for and from our relationship….so we got married.
And today, we still want more for and from our marriage. But what is it? How do we get it?
Isn’t the sequence of marriage; Date -> Engagement -> Marriage? I mean, most people think that’s all there is to it. I know I did.
Actually, there aren’t 3. There are 7.
Enter, The 7 Rings of Marriage.
Author Jackie Bledsoe Jr and his wife Stephana have captured the stages all marriages could and should experience. I believe stagnating in any of these stages (“rings”) is the open door to failure in marriage.
Stop at one ring, and your marriage is dead.
As you read through each ring of marriage, you’ll see marriages around you and your marriage in new light. You and your spouse will have a shared and common language to use in evaluating your marriage, in fact there is a tool at the end of the book to help you with this.
Helping couples get on the same page of where their marriage is is one of the most powerful outcomes of reading this book. Once you know where you are you can decide where you want to go. Then, you can develop a plan. And in your plan, find peace and focus in your marriage journey.
