I saw this & thought, "who came up with this list?" I don't want to shame anyone who created this list but when you get married, "For better or for worse" WILL get tested. You will have to develop through something. If you leave at the time of every struggle, you will find yourself single. No person is perfect. And to be honest, based on this list, we've dealt with unemployment (we both left our jobs to go into full time ministry), no money (candlelight & eggs for dinner that first year. Even in planning for the wedding we could barely afford it.), I lost my transportation when we first got married & we can both say that we have neglected each other at one point in our 9 years of being together. Ambition? We didn't have much of that when we depressed & nothing was working out in our life. Don't take these fleshy lists on IG & base your relationships off of them. Be led by the Holy Spirit instead. This generation must learn to cultivate a healthy marriage & build immunity. So, yes - me & my hubby struggled together & I'm a proud of it. We've grown closer & even more in love because of it. And I would struggle with him forever. He's perfect for ME. #strugglerelationship #ProudOfIt ❌ Even if this addressing a single woman, my husband and I struggled while courting too! We couldn't even afford our wedding. ❌ Again, we should be led by the Holy Spirit in all things. This isn't a one size fits all. Some things shouldn't be tolerated BUT what happens if he has money while dating and loses it all after marriage? You gonna leave? The focus of this is a mindset of wanting a ready bake relationship.
