Valentines time is perceived as a day of celebration of love. and rightly so, there should be a day to celebrate your love for your wife. If not a day a year, if not a year a lifetime. But sadly to say to America, Valentines is but a day. Author of book The Abolition of Marriage: How We Destroy Lasting Love, says:Not only is marriage in danger of disappearing…. Though we do not realize it yet, it already has… By expanding the definition of marriage to the point of meaninglessness, courts are gradually redefining marriage out of existence. Not just that but the divorce rate in America is soaring high with some 3.3 million divorces. As of 2003, 43.7% of custodial mothers and 56.2% of custodial fathers were either separated or divorced. And in 2002, 7.8 million Americans paid about $40 billion in child and/or spousal support (84% of the payers were male). You got your shack Rats statistics tells that 5.5 million are unmarried couples yet they are living together. Also you have your single mother. 9.68 million Single mother in America. You got spousal abuse, you got adultery, you got pornography, you got infidelity. This is america’s valentine. And while the world stops for this one day to pay homage to their love ones, there is always the next day. And my question is Does our world reflect an enduring love? Does our world reflect biblical marriages? What are the elements that I can add to my flowers and my candy and my dinner that would cause my marriage to endure in great love before God? What are the elements of a lasting love? What are the elements an enduring love?
