I'm stuck. I'm stuck between my dream to be a wife and to have a family and the reality I see all around me. I see divorce. And not just in the world. I see divorce in the church. Everywhere. I pray about this often. But I wonder why even try to get married and fight for something that has a 50% chance of ending? I don't want to be another statistic. I refuse to be another statistic. That is not what God intended. Marriage is supposed to be beautiful and to be honored.
I was listening to a Portland radio program the other day about gay marriage. Evan actually called in and shared his voice on the subject. The argument with gay marriage is often "to protect the sanctity of marriage." I would take that argument IF people actually argued marriage. However, the 50% divorce rate shows otherwise.
So again, I find myself stuck. Do I fight for my future, the God given dream to be married or do I find another way to live my life?
