Marriage differs from other types of relationships. In fact, we all recognize marriage is unique, but most have not considered this uniqueness; what makes it unique? And what is it about marriage that makes it highly desirable?
Marriage is a give and give relationship at its core, which sets it apart, and above, from all other relationships.
Other relationships are shallow compared to marriage. This does not mean that all relationships are shallow, of course. But they don’t compare to the marriage relationship because marriage rises above all relationships, wherein one can reach a state of peace, joy, and even bliss.
Marriage does not operate upon the give-and-take principle of reciprocity. Marriage requires you to operate with a higher intention instead of just trying to get as much from your spouse as possible.
When you made your vows, you defined a very different relationship, but you’re forgetting to stick to your vows. Your vows didn’t include “as long as you do for me, I will do for you,” or anything of the sort.
Many greatly misunderstood and misconceived when spouses repeated the same vows, they had made a deal. No, they did not make a deal. They never made vows contingent on each other making the same vows. If you had done so, your marriage would be nothing more than a business deal, and, even if it lasted, it would be classified as a failed marriage. Because a marriage based on reciprocity is not a marriage.
