Ask WHY?

Ask WHY… because everything starts with a #WHY (ideal, reason, vision).

The WHY addresses the #purpose of a thing and when the purpose is unknown…#abuse is imminent.

One will be surprised when one starts asking WHY…

Some people marry because they are lonely.

Some marry because they are getting older. Some simply for sex…money…comfort…the wedding gown or the allure of being married etc

So ask to what purpose is this marriage? Why us? Then get specific why me?
