One of my favorite bible verses says “where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV). What that verse says is without being able to see where you are going, you will have no life. Your life and family goals are the vision for your life and family. Families who set life goals will be full of life, those who don’t will not.
Opposites attract. You have probably heard that before. I have heard it many times, and it seems to hold true in marriage. Your spouse had different experiences than you prior to marriage. The same goes for you. When those experiences collide in matrimony it can be very challenging.
