Having a good marriage is important to everyone who is married and those who are planning to get married in the future. Be aware that there are many things which can interfere with or destroy a marriage relationship. By knowing what some of these problems are, you can better guard your family against them.
Many people do not realize that a lot of the media today is very destructive to marriages and families. You must be very careful of things such as what you watch, what you listen to and what you eat. Men, for example, are more visual than women. What they see and hear has a stronger influence on their emotions and their actions. Watching violent movies, video games, and too much adult media can have a very negative affect on a marriage relationship. It also sends the wrong messages to our boys and girls as to what is acceptable behavior. Did you know that by age 10 90% of boys have seen some form of adult media?
Another issue is addictive behaviors which get ignored. Many people have things they do or watch escape stressful situations, but how much is too much. When your computer becomes more important than your spouse or children, which is a problem. If you spend more time with your friends than your spouse, that is a problem. These are just a few things which can become addictive behaviors. If left unchecked, these behaviors can grow until they eventually destroy the family.
Being married is a very wonderful part of life, but it must also be protected. The more you put into it, the more you can get out of it. This holds true only if you keep out the negative media and addictive behaviors which can destroy what you are working so hard to build.
