    **note: I posted this here because I'm sure the following comment will generate plenty of debate. I may post later on why I make such a statement, but for now I'd like to hear your thoughts and comments **

    And what, you ask, is my "Amazing" discovery; only that selfish people should not get married

    Okay. Stepping out of the boat into the water now. :eek:

    It is very hard, if not impossible, to give your best to your spouse if you are selfish.

    Selfishness stems from egotism and narcissism. Neither of which has a place in a Godly marriage.

    Selfish people have never learned or been taught to share. The selfish person has a major case of the 'I' syndrome and 'I' is right smack in the middle of S 'I' N...

    We are to go into a marriage with a "how can I make my spouse happy", not "what can my spouse do to make ME happy".

    Should I duck now?

    Don't know how they can be a debate, except for the disclaimer that all are selfish to an extent.

    Marriage is "us" not "me."

    Eventually we learn that "us" is always best for "me" anyway.

    Everybody is selfish, it's just the matter of degree.

    So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

    For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
    Eph 5:28-29

    Ahhhh, but therein lies the rub. What if a man doesn't love himself? What if hates all that he is and all that he does? How can such a man love his wife? Does such a man even know what love really is; what it really means???
