Song Of The Week

 Reflections 

Last Sunday, Dr. Barry Davidson shared with us again about marriage, on the topic “Fight or Flight” We were reminded that the foundation for any successful marriage is indicated in Genesis 2:24-25  - “for this cause a man shall leave his father and mother” which suggests severance; “and shall cleave to his wife” which suggests permanence; “and shall become one flesh” which suggests unity “and the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed” which suggests intimacy. Frequently, the stressors in a family come because the husband and wife are not getting along. A healthy marriage is at the same time both demanding and very rewarding. As husband and wife, two adults have the challenge of merging their separate lives into an intimate and complex union which the bible describes as good and honourable, (see Proverbs 18:22 & Hebrews 13:4 ) however, mergers are not always smooth. Often there is disagreement, distrust, and misunderstanding before two parties begin to function as a unit which leads them to decide whether or not they will Fight for their marriage or choose a Flight response. There are some challenges we would need to examine that forces couples to choose the Flight response instead to Fight
