What's Happening to Marriages Today

What’s Happening to Marriages Today?


I was listening to someone just the other day…

And I couldn’t believe what he had to say!


He had left his wife and children for another!

She was young enough to be his daughter!


Here they were, “in love” and holding hands!

Hoping to soon, get their “wedding bands!”


They were pretending that this was so “cool.”

Living now by their own “set of rules!”


How sick and disgusting this is getting to be!

Is this something that many can’t see?


God gave us Adam and Eve to become one.

To bear fruit through daughters and sons!


He gave us marriage as holy vows are made.

Not to march in an “adulterous parade!”


We are treading on very dangerous ground!

Faithfulness and commitment

are scarcely found!


The very definition of marriage is changing!

As the family unit is always rearranging!


Our only hope is in Jesus!  And him alone!

Let’s promote his love! Into our hearts and home!


Let’s allow his love to be our heart’s glue!

And bring new meaning to the words; “I love you!”


May his love bind our hearts and lives together!

And remain faithful to each other forever!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
