I Don’t Need You

I’ll be the first to admit, my marriage is far, far from perfect. By far, i mean far.

But we’ve gotten one thing right from the start, my husband and I.

We’ve always said to eachother “I don’t need you.”

Wipe the shock off your face. We still love eachother, help eachother, and depend on eachother. But when something comes up, we take it to God and depend on him before eachother. Anytime we don’t, it ends badly.

I think it’s a good lesson for anyone.

  1. Yeah, I agree. God made us to be complete on our own. We don’t get married to complete each other, that’s from Greek mythology. But rather, it’s the mystery of 1+1=1, not a 1/2 + 1/2 = 1, there’s nothing mysterious about that.

    • And very odd Greek mythology, at that!
      I think what happens is, the only way to be 1 instead of 1/2 is with God. People stay separate from God, leaving them incomplete, and so they try to make themselves complete through their spouse.
