Marriage Moment Monday-Marriage isn't 50/50

Many people think a marriage should be 50/50. They divide up the bills, the chores, and other things so they are each taking an equal load.

Unfortunately, that doesn't work!

There are going to be times when you can't do your 50% (like when sick or 9 months pregnant). When you expect your spouse to give 50%, you will grow resentful when it doesn't happen. You will be busy keeping score instead of even keeping up with your 50%.

A marriage will be successful if both spouses give 100%. If each spouse does the best he/she can do, then it fills in the gaps and supports the other in time of need. Even if one spouse isn't giving 100%, the love and actions of the other spouse doing so can have major positive reactions.

1 John 3:18 
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
