A thought on marriage

We found that if each of us gives 75%, then it covers the gap when the other cannot give 50%. This applies to every area of marriage - money, chores etc.. If you give half (50%) and expect them to do their share (50%), then it becomes a business relationship. It will have frequent friction because you will always be watching to see if the other is doing his/her fair share. But if each gives 75%, then there is plenty to save into your 'love account' - especially to withdraw from to tide through the lean times when the other cannot contribute. The Bible says, 'Love covers a multitude of sins'. Furthermore, it fosters a spirit of generosity and grace.
