Is it proper to compare marriage to a business?
There a lot of things we can compare marriage too. Some people compare marriage to a rollercoaster, and the ups and downs one may experience. In my book, Chasing Happily Ever After, I compared building a house to building a solid relationship, and the importance of a strong foundation. Even God compares marriage to our relationship with Him. So is it a fair to say marriage is a business. Recently there was a post on social media where a particular person did just that in justifying their actions and viewpoints. Which begs the question, is marriage a business?
“Men need to stop disrespecting women and asking them to marry them with a 1 carat diamond ring. If you can’t afford a ring 3 carat or better you can’t afford a wife. It’s bigger than being materialistic. Rather, it’s about being able to see with your third eye. It is about being able to read in between the lines that marriage is a business.
Whether y’all like it or not, Disney messed peoples heads up with, “happily ever after”. You cannot start a business without some type of financial backing! What can we do for each other??? If you don’t have enough money to spend on an inanimate object such as a ring, you are not ready to invest in a business (i.e. marriage). Go back to the drawing board.”Facebook Post
Your worldview shapes your perspective, and in-turn your perspective molds your actions.
When we hold certain perspectives, those perspectives shape how we see and live. For example, when someone has the perspective that sex is sacred and only meant for marriage. It will cause a person to keep themselves from multiple sexual partners and saving sex for marriage. On the other hand, if someone views sex as a tool for enjoyment and to be explored. It will most likely cause that person to be promiscuous and have multiple sexual partners.
When it comes to comparing a marriage to a business. We have to ask how does that impact our actions. Does doing so have a negative impact or positive impact upon how one approaches relationships. In this podcast episode we take a look at this comparison, and answer some of these questions. In the end is marriage a business?
