A Line in the Sand

with Ron Deal | February 28, 2020

You know what a wedding is, right? It's the day a man and a woman draw a line in the sand and step over it together. I've heard some people argue that living with someone is essentially the same thing. Then I say, "Oh, so it won't matter is you go ahead and get married then." To which they start backpedaling pretty fast. People intuitively know that marriage is different. Paper may not make a difference, but commitment does. Do you want permanence? Choose permanence.
