The Secrets of 50 Year Romantic Expedition

      Golden Anniversary Celebration

           Matthew E McLaren Ph.D.

Introduction: The genesis of this book is to review in greater depth the romantic expedition given to the first husband and wife at the beginning of creation. In the beginning, God created heaven and the earth and everything in it. He created man and woman in his own image and declare that everything was very good. God performs the marriage of the first husband and wife. He gave them the precious gift of unconditional love, the biological intimate gift of making children, and dominion over the entire world and everything in it. They were trusted stewards of God’s earthly kingdom.

They were in constant contact with God. God’s moral law enveloped in unconditional love was written in their heart and mind. Disobedience to God’s instruction, allowed the creature of deception to rob them of their Creator’s priceless gifts. The lack of trust in God’s unconditional love by the first husband and wife has placed the sacred institution of marriage in question by generations that followed. As time goes by, the beginning of creation came under attack by the big bang theory revolution. God in his infinite wisdom and unconditional love for his confused children; sent his only begotten Son, to redeem his dominion, restores his moral law to his people and the sacred institution of marriage.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”. (John 3: 16 KJV). I must dealer that I am not a marriage counselor or a psychologist. I am just a humble husband, who has experienced fifty years of challenging romantic expedition of marriage, guided and sustained by the gift of God’s unconditional love.
In my research on this topic, I discovered that there are thousands of counselors, coaches, psychologists, and other experts giving counseling to married couples and recommending the secrets of staying married. I respect the counseling of many of these professionals.

However, my personal belief and experience in God’s words dispense to us in his Holy Bible; suggests to me that there is a missing link. To sustaining a successful marriage; we cannot eliminate the sacred instruction given to husband and wife at the beginning of creation. Many of the instructions given by professionals are missing the most important link, God’s divine guidance. In my exploration for joyful living, every day provides new challenging and rewarding adventures. We have a lifetime to accumulate unique learning experiences that represent values of priceless and rare treasures. Every marriage expedition should be designed and trailered to fit the needs of each couple. I am recommending that wife and husband who have taken the opportunity to travel the challenging terrains of life journey.

Train their mind-body to design and develop an environmental health and safety program to prevent marital incidents. Before starting your daily activity, take time to analyze and evaluate your project, for hidden, physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional hidden hazards that are treated to your project. Take action to eliminate or contain them, before they become minor are fatal incidents that are disruptive to your marriage and family working environment.
When you take time to eliminate or contain incidents before starting your daily task. Your project will be more productive and cost-saving. Most marriage and family projects are bankrupt and shut down, because of unnecessary risk, bad planning, and lack of proper policy and procedure. It is also necessary to mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally prepare your mind-body for your daily task.

Take quality time for spiritual devotion physical and mental stretching. Your mind-body autonomic nervous system will be better balanced to react more efficiently to emergency response. Do not develop the attitude that will endanger your marriage, family, and environment.
The rarest and priceless berried, treasured you should be shearing for, is a lifetime of joyful, caring marriage and family relationships, filled with laughter and relaxation. These treasures, when invested wisely, will be compounded to a lifetime of continuous generations of precious diamonds, pearls, and jewels, which will be proudly displayed in the family museum, by generation after generation as your family tree.

In the pages of this book, I am encouraging wife and husband to visualize their future and paint a panoramic picture of the history they would like to leave for their children, grand, great-grand, and great-great-grandchildren. How would you like your priceless treasure to be read and your pages of history, by your future generation? Do you want them to be confused and disappointed by all the broken relationships and detreating family values? Many people have asked Theresa and me what is our secret about staying married for fifty years.
The length of time we are married is just numbers. It is the quality time and cooperative efforts; we share with each other, as we journey through life that strengthens the foundation of our relationship. It takes love, compassion, an unselfish attitude, positive action, flexibility, endurance, responsibility, and commitment to sustain and nurture joyful living.
