One day on a bus ride home, I heard two friends discussing, and one remarked “Everybody wants to get married, meanwhile those of us in the marriages want out.” Then I thought to myself, why are there so many breakups and divorces these days? Don’t people believe in love anymore? What really causes most marital and relationship disagreements?
I am not a relationship expert; as I have no qualifications in relationship or marriage fields. But to answer my own questions and improve my own relationship with people, I went to the “Teacher” and found these words; “Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.” – Song of Solomon 2:15.
