Marriage is work. Sometimes very hard work. And somewhere along the line we got the idea that work is a bad thing. But don’t we generally refer to people who refuse to work as bums? Work is something that can bring great rewards, and that applies to marriages too. There is a bad kind of work, however: The kind that is non-productive or counterproductive, work that doesn’t labor for something good. That’s the work to avoid. Things that are hard and take time are worth the effort, especially marriage. We can definitely work it the wrong way and be busy with the wrong goals, but don’t let a fear of work spoil things worth pursuing. Get to work!
