If you’ve been “Keeping up with the Kardashians” you know that Kim is getting divorced. She and Kris Humphries have been married 72 days. I’ve done the math for you and it’s not even three months!
There’s some joke about things falling apart “faster than a celebrity wedding.” Hearing this kind of news can make you laugh or roll your eyes. At least that’s what I did. (In addition to saying “predictable” out loud)
I know this doesn’t just happen in Hollywood. I don’t need a reality TV show to tell me that this is a reality. People are falling in love, getting married and then divorcing every day. It’s not just the Kardashians. Deep down I really do feel bad for her because I know it’s a hard situation to be in. I’ve seen so many people hurt by divorce. Maybe it even happened in your own home.
It leaves the question in my mind, “Is true love possible? Is it real? Can two people stay together ‘til death do us part’?”
The answer is an enthusiastic “Yes!” I know because a fortune cookie said so.
And I know it’s possible because I’ve seen it happen. There are no magic words or as Cosmopolitan promises – sex secrets that make couples want to remain married. It’s about commitment to each other no matter what. It takes self-denial and putting the other person before yourself. It’s the power of grace in the Sacrament of Marriage.
I could go on and on about “what it takes.” But really all I want to do is give you hope. Love doesn’t have to be the way the Kardashians portray it. I promise.
See for yourself. Take a look at this real couple, Danny and Annie, and their 27 year love story; and believe God has something amazing planned for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
