  • You know what a wedding is, right? It's the day a man and a woman draw a line in the sand and step over it together. I've heard some people argue that living with someone is essentially the same thing. Then I say, "Oh, so it won't matter is you go ahead and get married then." To which they start backpedaling pretty fast. People intuitively know that marriage is different. Paper may not make a difference, but commitment does. Do you want permanence? Choose permanence.

Ron: Here’s a dilemma: How do you find permanence in a relationship without making a permanent commitment?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: You know what a wedding is, right? It’s the day a man and a woman draw a line in the sand and step over it together. I’ve heard some people argue that living with someone is essentially the same thing. That a piece of paper doesn’t make a difference. Then I say, “Oh, so it won’t matter is you go ahead and get married then.” To which they start backpedaling pretty fast.

You see, people intuitively know that marriage is different. That’s why they didn’t step over the line in the first place. Paper may not make a difference, but commitment does. Do you want permanence? Choose permanence. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
