God brought her to Adam. And Adam said, “At last!” –Genesis 2:22-23, pretty much.
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another. — Romans 12:10
In lowliness of mind, let each esteem others better than himself. –Philippians 2:3
My wife and I each think we got the better part of the deal.
That’s it. That’s our “secret.”
After 52 years of marriage–she to Gary and I to Margaret–Bertha Pepper Fagan and I met on February 15, 2016. And we knew that week that the Lord had put us together. We were married the following January 11. Next anniversary is number seven for us.
Everyone on my side of the family delights in my bride. And, as far as I can tell, Bertha’s side all seem okay with her pick of a hubby. So, we’re doing great.
We could wish every couple felt this way.
Have you ever known anyone who felt they married beneath themselves? That they could have done better? I have. See below.
Not good. That’s a relationship killer, to be sure.
Over the years I’ve seen that attitude ruin several promising marriages. And when it happens to a couple in ministry, it can destroy their ministry.
I’m thinking of one such couple. The husband told me this story after the wife abandoned him and their children for another man.
