Affirmation
I affirm my commitment to a spiritual and loving life!

Commitment

Though we may make many commitments throughout our time on earth, few have a lifelong impact on the path our lives will take. The decision to commit to someone you love—to bond yourself to them completely—is unlike any other and can reshape your existence. When two people have similar goals, values, and needs, this commitment can result in a lifetime partnership of love and respect, shared laughter and tears, friendship, and intimacy that is ultimately fulfilling. Love is often cited as the sole prerequisite of a strong and stable partnership. However, the decision to become committed should be made with the mind and the soul as well as with the heart. June is the month when many couples decide to commit—whether through marriage, moving in together, or simply exchanging loving words.

Carefully considering whether you truly want to commit both individually and as a couple, can ensure that if you do, your relationship can grow to unimaginable depths. The decision-making process you employ to determine whether you should commit ought to be a thoughtful and honest one in which you appraise not only your partner but also yourself. Consider that love and attraction do not guarantee long-term compatibility. If your relationship is not secure, marriage or any other kind of commitment will not make it so. Likewise, if your partner is not as attentive, loving, or kind as you would like, your becoming spouses will not change that. Commitment has no power to permanently fill any emotional or spiritual gaps in your life. Before you do so, ask yourself whether you and your partner are adept at resolving conflict, can speak openly to one another, and fully respect one another. Your attitudes regarding the spirituality of commitment, your children, their children, child rearing roles may be the same or they may differ. It is your shared responsibility to discuss your similarities and come to agreements regarding your differences that will predict how successful your future will be.

Communication between each of you – is the most important part of any partnership – whether it is about finances, spirituality, sex, families or geographical residences – all of these figure into a great relationship. Remember that planning to commit is simple when compared to the intricacies of nurturing a partnership. The honeymoon and nesting period will eventually wear off, and what you are left with is a partner for life. When you work together with your partner, reassure and support one another, and are honest about your feelings you’ll come to the right decision.

Dirty Words
A young couple got married and went on a cruise for their honeymoon. When they got back from the honeymoon, the bride immediately called her mother, who lived a couple of hours away.
“Well, darling,” said her mom, “How was the honeymoon?”
“Oh, Mother,” she replied, “The honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic; we had a terrific time! But, as soon as we returned, Sam began using horrible language. Stuff I’d never heard before – terrible four-letter words. You’ve got to come and take me home.” And she began to sob over the phone.
“But honey,” the mother countered, “what four-letter words?”
“I can’t tell you, Mother,” said the daughter, “They’re too awful! Come get me, please!!!”
“Daughter, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell mother the four-letter words!”
Still sobbing, the bride said, “Mother, words like dust, wash, iron, cook!!!”

********************************

What Exactly Is Marriage??
“Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don’t have to give her back to her parents.” – Eric, AGE 6

“When somebody’s been dating for a while, the boy might propose to the girl. He says to her, ‘I’ll take you for a whole life, or until we have kids and get divorced, but you got to do one particular thing for me.’ Then she says yes, but she’s wondering what the thing is and whether it’s naughty or not. She can’t wait to find out.” – Anita, AGE 9

How Does a Person Decide Whom to marry??
“You flip a nickel, and heads means you stay with him and tails means you try the next one.” – Kelly, AGE 9

“My mother says to look for a man who is kind….That’s what I’ll do….I’ll find somebody who’s kinda tall and handsome.” – Mary, AGE 8

Concerning the Proper Age to Get Married.
“Eighty-four. Because at that age, you don’t have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom.” – Carolyn, AGE 8

“Once I’m done with kindergarten, I’m going to find a wife” – Bert, AGE 5

How Did Your Mom and Dad Meet??
“They were at a dance party at a friend’s house. Then they went for a drive, but their car broke down…It was a good thing, because it gave them a chance to find out about their values.” – Lottie, AGE 9

“My father was doing some strange chores for my mother. They won’t tell me what kind.” – Jeremy, AGE 8

What Do Most People Do on a Date??
“On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” – Martin, AGE 10

“Many daters just eat pork chops and french fries and talk about love.” – Craig, AGE 9

When Is It Okay to Kiss Someone??
“You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a ring and her own VCR, ’cause she’ll want to have videos of the wedding.” – Allan, AGE 10

“Never kiss in front of other people. It’s a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you….If nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours.” – Kally, AGE 9

The Great Debate: Is It Better to Be Single or Married??
“You should ask the people who read Cosmopolitan”- Kirsten, AGE 10

“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them.”- Anita, AGE 9

“It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I’m just a kid. I don’t need that kind of trouble.” – Will, AGE 7
