Is Your Marriage Actually Based On
Emotion Or Intellect
Premarital counseling questions; are vital. We all presume, we understand love. Love makes me feel special. Love makes me feel good. Love makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Love makes me feel like loving my wife, my children, my parents.
But what happens, when so-called love, doesn’t give you access to the warm and fuzzy? What happens when you don’t experience so-called “in love” anymore?
What-happens-then? To your marriage; your Beloved; your relationship with Christ?
I’ll tell you what happens! They're screwed!
Why? Because now, since I don’t harbor the love anymore. that’s my excuse to abandon my marriage; my excuse, to find a home wrecker to shack up with. Oh, but only until I tire of her.
In fact, we leave and desert our families. But naively rationalize, somehow they will be ok; they will survive.
“Hogwash!” is what I say. This reasoning is just an excuse to indulge in total selfishness.
You know it. I know it. And more important; God knows it!
Premarital Counseling Questions:
Concerning Love, Are You Classically Catholic Or Secular?
So, what is love? Is it an emotion; a feeling?
According to the Catholic Church:
“Love is willing the good of another, at the sacrifice of one’s self!”
You see? Love Is An Act Of The Will!
We as men, make a conscious decision, to love, honor, and cherish, our wives for eternity. Not until, I don’t feel the feeling anymore!
Sure, don’t get me wrong. Having a warm, fuzzy feeling is nice. It’s a motivator; makes us sense euphoria. And as a benefit, the closer you grow to Christ, you may experience this emotion.
On the other hand, as you move through the levels of the faith. God will strip those emotions away. Further, you’ll have to depend on your will to sustain you.
Look, let’s break it down to the core.
Love is a decision, a commitment, a burning fire within the will saying, “I will do this!”
“No matter what happens; no matter the cost.”
“No matter, how-I-feel!”
“Moreover, I am a man; a Christian Soldier.”
“I will myself to love my wife, even if she no longer loves me.”
Do you get it?
Marriage Tip: What Should Your View Be Concerning Love?
Warning: This Might Hurt!
So, what stance on love in the end, will make us happy?
After all, God understands, if we rely on our feelings. That eventually, they will let us down. They will lead us astray. Not to mention, when it comes to the critical areas of our life (faith and marriage).
But the intellect, “the will”, is something on a higher level. It never leaves. It’s forever there. Furthermore, it forces us to use logic; common sense. Even when our emotions, guide us in the wrong direction. To say, “Abandon God, or our Beloved.”
For this reason, the Catholic Faith is so great and awesome. God realizes, we come to Him as an act of our wills. Not because we suppose today, we love Him. Or tomorrow we despise Him, because we didn’t get our way.
Authentic Men, True Men, Men Of Courage, have fortitude, perseverance, fight, long suffering. In order, to stay and battle the Evil One. To protect his Beloved. To defend his Beloved. To serve his Beloved.
And to tell ourselves, we will never leave. We will never stop battling. Even until the death. Why?
Because my friend. This is just what True Man does!
