Becoming equal parnters

“Temple marriage covenants do not magically bring equality to a partnership. Those covenants commit us to a developmental process of learning and growing together—by practice.

“. . . Equal partnerships are not made in heaven—they are made on earth, one choice at a time, one conversation at a time, one threshold crossing at a time. And getting there is hard work.”

Bruce C. Hafen, “Crossing Thresholds and Becoming Equal Partners,” Ensign, Aug. 2007, 28

I love this quote.  We cannot neglect our marriages and assume that we can have a celestial marriage if we are not working on it.  It doesn’t just happen, and it is not a guarantee.

What are you doing to make your marriage strong?  That is a question that I am pondering today.
