Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Revealing The Truth Of God's Holy Word In His Love!!


Working this morning from Katy Mills Mall


The pastor that married Betty and me, gave us three to three and a half to stay together, and Now going on forty awesome years later, Nobody But GOD doing it!!!


 Couples start taking each other for granted after just a few years of marriage



Couples start taking each other for granted three years and six months into their marriage, a new poll reveals.


My light study says the poll of 2,000 married adults showed this is the point where couples lose the dating buzz, prefer sleep over sex and stop saying 'I love you'... and believers should Never marry a Non-believer, Never Ever!!!  Your Bible says. Period.


My light research indicated after three and a half years of wedded bliss, cuddling up on the sofa in the evening is a thing of the past, with couples more likely to go to bed at different times.


The before and after: Three and a half years is the average time before a couple starts taking each other for granted, Not praying or worshiping the Lord together or Not studying God's Holy Word together.


Opting to keep to oneself than spending time together in one and as one body... is one of the top signs that you have started taking your partner for granted



And by this time in a relationship, rather than settling down to enjoy an evening together, the likelihood is that couples will eat at different times, sit in different rooms and zone out of a conversation in favor of watching television.



Mrs. Betty and Myself were married on Easter Sunday on March 26.1978 after Worship services.


'Once the honeymoon period is over couples often let bad habits take over, and forget to go the extra mile to make each other happy.


'We all know that it's the little things that make a big difference, so adding a bit of quality time, like re-introducing 'date nights' or enjoying a meal in together, could be a good way to show you care.


'Bad habits begin to creep into the relationship, such as breaking wind in front of each other ( LOL ), How do I know this you ask ), showering less, women forgetting to shave their legs, not closing the bathroom door when using the toilet and leaving the toilet seat up.'


If your 'date nights' are dwindling or you stop enjoying special 'one on one' time' then your honeymoon period is probably over

If your 'date nights' are dwindling or you stop enjoying special 'one on one' time' then your honeymoon period is probably over


The study also found appearance takes a turn for the worse, with many dressing down in tracksuit bottoms or pajamas before their partner gets home.


Not bothering with make-up and ditch matching underwear in favor of granny pants also becomes commonplace.


Additionally, this is the stage when familiarity with each other leads to memory loss regarding events such as wedding anniversaries, Valentine's Day, Christmas and even birthdays. Please don't ask me how I know this information LOL.


Couples also revert to being more interested in spending time with friends than each other.


But despite entering the comfort zone, two-thirds of those polled said they still consider their marriage to be 'strong'.


The top some of the signs that YOU are being taken for granted

Does your partner prioritize their TV choices over yours?

Does your partner prioritize their friends choices over yours?


 Your partner opts to sleep rather than having sex


 Lack of 'date nights'


 They forget to say 'I love you' every day


 You stop kissing each other goodbye


 You go to bed at different times


 You don't cuddle up on the sofa in the evening anymore


 Dressing down in tracksuit bottoms before the other half gets home


 You no longer bother with Valentine's Day


 They assume you'll do all the chores


 They break wind when you are around


 The little phone calls at work stop


 Ditching matching underwear


 You don't religiously apply make-up before seeing each other


 Forgetting to say thank you for dinner


 You stop shaving your legs so often


 They stop buying spontaneous gifts for no reason


 Slacking on chores or doing half jobs


. Leaving the toilet seat up, we guys LOL!!!


 Not excited at the chance to spend one on one time with you


 They prioritize their bad choices over yours


In fact, only 43 percent of spiritual leaders and believed taking each other for granted was a bad thing, and 75 percent said it was 'normal' for anyone who has been married for a decent length of time.


Nine out of ten Christians marriages claimed the only reason they behave as they do is that they are so comfortable with each other.


'Far from those bad habits being a sign that the relationship's on the rocks, it looks as though taking each other for granted can be a sign of security and comfort, and you don't need the reassurance of saying 'I love you' all the time.'


Although 82 percent of Christians couples claim to be happy with their marriage, 49 percent do wish their partner was 'more romantic'.


However, half of the couples admit they don't tell each other they love them enough, and one in four would like to make more effort by introducing more 'date nights'


Oil and Water do not mix, Light and darkness have nothing in common, Sinners and Born again Believers are Not ever going to heaven together, and Christians and Sinners should Never Marry. Period.
