72 Days of Marriage

So I think most of you have been well-informed about the expired marriage contract that lasted 72-days...  Can you believe it? I can’t even begin to fathom how quick this highly publicized marriage ended!  
Thanks, Hollywood! You have definitely ruined the sanctity of marriage.  
“Major headlines” such as this, move me to reflect upon my life and how people make serious decisions like that. If in the marriage and you’re already seeing things that stirs up conflict, seek help. Marriage is about relationships. You deal with people and people change and people mess up, and people are/can be psychos! But there is hope and the sanctity of marriage should be respected. Arguments about annoying comments, the toilet seat, being distant, watching too much sports, defective listening skills, all these can be magnified into outrageous proportions as they're not dealt with properly, but is it not fixable? Clearly, I’m against divorce, but I’m no expert on the topic when it comes to abuse or violence in the home. But what I do know is that if it’s “irreconcilable differences” that’s creating a rift between you two, how much effort was truly exerted into reconciling those differences when you were head over heels with that person when you said, “I do!”
For the singles (and for myself) I must say that your heart = emotions should not run your life. The Bible says, “Guard your heart” (Proverbs 4:23) because “the heart is deceitful above all things” (Jeremiah 17:9). You must put your critical thinking skills to work and please, give yourself TIME. All I know is that when you have a deep conviction about something from the very START, do not settle for what’s second-best or available. I've had my regrets in the past and now I'm wiser (hopefully). If you’re wondering where that person is and why he or she hasn’t come yet, have faith and wait. Let’s enjoy being in His presence in the meantime. Though it is painful, the results will truly be worth it all. Let’s go for what you believe we deserve and aim for His best.

Deng, someone get me a publisher?! Gotta write some books!
Do you have a list of non-negotiable’s when it comes to meeting your future mate?
