Tuesday Topic: Marriage purpose statement

This week's topic isn't directly related to missionary life, but we're mostly married moms, so it fits: I recently read a book (What's It Like to Be Married to Me? by Linda Dillow, highly recommended!) where the author suggests writing a "marriage purpose statement." If you were to write a purpose statement for your marriage, what would it be? Please share it with us, if you don't mind.

A quote to get you going:
A Marriage Purpose Statement is your conscious creation of who you want to become. It outlines your goals as a wife--the things you can do to become the wife you want to be. Like the rudder on a ship, it steers your marriage boat, so that you know where you are heading. Your personal Marriage Purpose Statement can be a letter to yourself, a prayer, a poem, a verse, or a passage of Scripture. It can be anything that declares your goals for your marriage. It is a statement about what is really important to you as a wife.
--What's It Like to Be Married to Me? by Linda Dillow, pages 34-35

  1. I am going to write my thoughts and then ask my husband to do the same. But I think I would have three lines.

    Mutual Respect.
    Passionate Love for God, each other, and others.
    Following Christ. Together.
