Thoughts from Deik and Kims Wedding, for You and Your Marriage


Deik and Kim, remember that marriage is a COVENANT relationship. It is not merely a contract of convenience, nor a promise to live together as long as each still feels good about the other. It is a COVENANT to love and care for each other until parted by death, or until the coming of our Lord.

The Reality of Arranged Marriages


Arranged marriages have been a topic of interest for centuries. Authors across the ages have explored this theme at length, and it still surfaces in literary works today. What's the appeal?

We strive on the element of danger, of the forbidden, while an arranged marriage is usually a safe way to ensure a family's approval of a union.

A Tale of Two Weddings


In the next six months, my son, daughter, andgrandson are all getting married. Our family isspread across Ontario and the United States, so I'm thankful to be living in the computergeneration. Wedding plans without theadvantage of the Internet and email wouldbe a long, difficult process.

To get my point across, let's visit the homesof Miss Modern and Miss Pre-Computer asthey prepare for their special days:

Miss Modern has an idea of the venue shewould like for her wedding and spends anevening researching on the Internet. Shelooks at pictures of different halls, alongwith prices, menus, and featuresincluded. After deciding on threepossibilities, she emails to ask if they would be available on the wedding date.One hall is booked, so Miss M. and herfiance will go to see both halls and makea final decision. Communication and menu changes are done by email.

Miss M. designs a database for her guestlist. Additions and changes are easily made.Invitations are created using specialwedding software and elegant blank cards.Easy, attractive and inexpensive.

Again using the database and a signaturefont, Miss M. creates mailing labels (usingtransparent labels) for 200 people in lessthan an hour. To create personalized reply cards, she uses mail merge and the computerinserts names on each card.

A relative in another country would likephotos of the couple for a special weddinggift. Using a digital camera, the photosare taken and emailed in plenty of timefor the gift to be made.

There are constant questions from theguests about accommodation nearby, whatis everyone wearing, what do the young couple need? Emails answer many of the questions and guests are given a website for the bridal registry. Items still needed are listed here, can be purchased without leaving home and will be delivered to thereception. This is a big help to peoplecoming from a distance.

Miss Modern relaxes while she and herfuture husband look at honeymoon spots- on the Internet of course!

Miss Pre- Computer, on the other hand,has had a headache for days. Too manythings to do and not enough time.After weekends spent looking atvarious halls, she and her fiance can'ttake it any longer and book the nextone they visit.

The guest list has been typed out, butsome important people were missed andthere are duplicates on the list. MissPre-C is not a fast typist when she'sstressed, so has to re-do the 200 guestlist a number of times before it's right.

Her days are constantly interrupted byphone calls from guests with questionsabout the wedding. The long distancebill is growing every day.

A friend recommends a good printerfor invitations, but he is out of town,and another search begins. The invitations are beautiful, soMiss Pre-C begins addressing the200 envelopes. Never praised forher handwriting, the last of theenvelopes is barely readable. Shedecides to try again tomorrow.

Relatives need pictures of the couplefor a special gift. The photos aremailed and after frantic calls to thepost office, are finally delivered, toolate to use. More long distance calls so gifts aren't duplicated.

A frantic call from Gramma at the border.Customs officials are questioning her andare taking apart the gifts. Through her tears, Gramma explains that the 50 itemshad been individually wrapped. Miss Pre-C takes a deep breath andconsiders eloping. P.S. If you still need convincing, my sonmet his future bride on the Internet!

Marriage and the Election


Dear Friends of Marriage,

Marriage Missing its Spark?


If the fires of passion in your marriage have been reduced nearly to embers, then you are not alone. One of the most common problems that can damage a marriage is the loss of spark?or spice, or whatever you like to call it. It?s really not so easy to get yourself or your partner ?in the mood? once you have become very familiar with each other. Of course, it?s wonderful to be familiar with your spouse because familiarity is the basis of intimacy. But intimacy is not the same as passion, is it? Routine is the culprit. If the proper countermeasures are not deployed against routine?s assault on your relationship, then it will drain all the passion right out of your marriage. Routine is a tenacious killer of passion?a suspect in the deaths of over 1 million steamy romances. I know routine comes in very handy for showers and oil changes, but it has no place in the bedroom.
