What is the opposite of Love?  If you said Hate, well, I hate to disagree with you, but I’m convinced that the opposite of love is really selfishness.  And in marriage, selfishness often makes you the worst threat to your marriage.

Consider these truths about selfishness:

  • When selfishness has a seat at the dinner table, it always demands to be fed first.
  • The human heart is naturally bent towards selfishness…it wants what it wants, now.
  • Selfishness is a root problem. Most major problems at the root of crumbling marriages, even extramarital affairs, are rooted in the rotten core of selfishness.
