The Brother Marcus and Sister Cecelia Show
In this program, Brother Marcus and Sister Cecelia and our cast and crew, discussed the topic of, “Confronting the fear and outright cowardice that we have in ourselves and in our marriages!” Do you really have a Muslim or a Christian Marriage if fear is ruling your marriage? Just because your parents might have had a bad marriage does not mean that you can't be different. Many of us have loving, healthy relationships, but our intense anxiety makes us constantly wonder if we have made a mistake.
The Top Five Fears of Marriage
1. The fear of divorce
2. The fear of cheating on each other
3. The fear of emulating your parents' marriage (distance, fighting, loveless marriage)
4. The fear of falling out of love
The fear of the unknown (What will marriage be like? Will everything change after we get married?) Are you facing your fears in marriage? What are they? We've come to realize that when a conflict stirs powerful emotions of hurt, it also touches specific fears. When someone taps into those fears, we tend to react with unhealthy words or actions. Unhealthy reactions create a cycle. Your mate's words or actions may trigger a fear in you, causing you to react to unhealthy words or actions of your own. These, in turn, push his "buttons" and cause him to react. Suddenly the two of you end up in a full-blown "fear dance." You'll do or say anything to soothe your hurt and calm your fears. We will discuss these fears in depth on this show. We will also focus on this issue from our singles side as well. Are you suffering with Gamophobia, the fear of marriage or commitment? Marriage is one of the biggest commitments that we've ever made, and with our dismal success rate and most people growing up witnessing a conflictual or loveless marriage, of course we're terrified to jump off the cliff and take this leap of faith! As a single man or woman have you determined what exactly you are scared when it comes to marriage? Much of the fear we hold towards marriage is imagined. Most single people don't fear marriage itself, but rather, its implications and its potential failure. What changes are you worried about? What's the worst possible scenario that's paralyzing your views on marriage?
Some of The Top Fears of Single People involving Marriage:
