    Surge Summary: Hillary Clinton recently mentioned she is glad she stuck with her troubled marriage. It’s odd she and her former-president husband should demonstrate it’s possible for struggling spouses to stay together … but they do.

    by Mikayla H. La Grita

    According to the old song, “Love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage,” but do they really?

    Hillary Clinton’s question by one of the interviewers from the new Apple TV reality show that she and Chelsea are producing/starring in:

    “What was the bravest thing you’ve ever done?”

    She replied, “Staying in my marriage, but that is not the right choice for everyone.”

    Given that the foibles and pitfalls of the Clinton marriage are public knowledge, it makes perfect sense. Their union appears to have evolved into a marriage of convenience and ambition.

    While one may be reluctant to ever agree with Hillary Clinton, she is right, everything is about choices.

    It is to be supposed that every marriage is subject to evolution, regardless of whether it occurs in the spotlight or in obscurity.

    The question is so you believe in evolution or creation?

    What? That has nothing to do with marriage that is a scientific/faith question.

    Not so fast.

    Evolution is strongly disavowed by the Bible and Christians, while science has bones and other archeological evidence to support its case that man evolved from lower creatures and it was subject to the survival of the fittest.

    Here is how the two sides compare on the subject of marriage:

    The Christian faith has marriage as created of God and that two shall become one. Being that God has ordained the union and it is the backbone of the family, there are those who would like to tear it down. One might think: Who in the world would want that to happen?

    The one whose name is Chaos, among other names to include the devil, and his minions.

    His purpose is to destroy God’s perfect plans and create misery and lies to that end, along with harvesting souls for his side of the board.

    Do tell how he might do this? No one would let that happen, would they? Wouldn’t the couple see what was going on and disallow it?

    Not necessarily, it isn’t a full frontal attack.

    The devil won’t dig in visible trenches around your home, with armed minions you could throw a rock at and maybe hit.  However, he will dig in to find the weakest link. It could be one partner is strong in Christ. He wouldn’t be able to make much headway there, but the other may not be fully invested in Christ. Maybe there is doubt, or a tendency toward any of the deadly sins, even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal. It is chink in the armor, and the fight begins. In order to get to one, he uses the other as a tool.

    The couple might believe that they have some issues, or things they need to compromise on or develop ways to cope with their differences, but did you ever think from where the differences come?

    Everyone changes some after marriage, right? Probably, the question is, was it intentional or not. Some just plain lie about who they are in the courtship. This is deception!

    Isn’t that a tool of the devil? The devil is nothing but a lie. Perhaps if it is given much thought, all marital problems come directly from him and his minions?

    How about evolution? How does that parallel into marriage?

    If a marriage endures these above mentioned attacks and lasts for many years, it has evolved to become stronger, proving the survival of the fittest. There will be bones and scars of shattered and withered conflicts that were conquered, buried deep within and around the marriage. This can’t happen unless both partners are strong and in it for the long haul. Couples who are willing to evolve and grow together will resist the devil, even if they don’t see it in that light.

    However, keep in mind, that even the strong in Christ can be fooled and used to his evil purpose. It is only the difference of a modicum of strength that could turn the tide.

    There are cases where one side of the partnership endures abuse or scandal, who will stick to the marriage regardless, but back to the original quote, that isn’t for everyone. The union shouldn’t be a total self- sacrificing choice at the expense of one person’s entire life.

    In summation, people and society have changed.

    Evil has not changed; it has just become more prevalent. It is a good idea to be aware of who is the founder of the feast of misery and call him out by his name, often.

    Curse and rebuke him in Jesus’ name and he must flee, even if it is a relentless assault. God’s people have a never ending, unfailing weapon for their defense.
