As we bring Season 4 of Tantalizing Tuesdays to a close. I want to end with a thought. A question, really. That puts everything into focus.
When your kids are full-grown,
will they want the same type of marriage they grew up seeing?
The brutal truth is, there is a direct tie between the quality of your relationships and the future quality of your children’s. Your kids didn’t choose to come into this world. They had no say in whom their parents would be. Nor do they get to select the type of marriage their mom and dad would have. That is all up to you. And to me. It’s easy to forget, but what a child learns is more caught than taught. The best thing you could ever do for your kids is to put your marriage first. For the marriage is the foundation upon which the rest of the home grows; freeing your kids from the stress and worry of whether mom and dad will stay together. So choose to put in the hard work of tantalzing your relationships. Not just for your own sake, but for the wellness of your children and grandchildren. You are a history maker. You are building the legacy of your family whether you want to or not.
