Maximos, in the book The Mountain of Silence by Kyriacos Markides, says the purpose of marriage is ascesis, or spiritual exercise. Marriage is designed to bring us closer to God. As we work and grow to- gether we become more united. As this process continues, we become more human, and as we become more truly human, we are able to be- come more unified with the divine. It is easy to understand why this is so. We think of God as Trinity, three in one. Marriage is two becoming one, but it doesn't happen overnight. It takes time. It takes "exercise." Getting married in a church isn't the end of the growth in a marriage, but only the beginning. I have to give myself to it and to my spouse. That "marriage muscle" is exer- cised every day, in every conversation, and in every act. The path to the divine is sown in the human. Our culture puts all the attention on the wedding and very little on the marriage. Small wonder why half of us get divorced. The wedding is usually about selfishness and ego: two very important things to rid our- selves of in marriage. If I am selfish, 1 can't become one with my wife. If everything is about me, the two will never become one. Together we will always fall short. I remember when the Beatles broke up. The critics said that the sum of the parts didn't equal the whole. In other words, what they accom- plished in their solo careers, didn't measure up to what they were able to do together. Now, the Beatles weren't a marriage in the conventional sense, but the music they made tpgether and as individuals makes a fine correla- tion to what happens in a marriage. My wife and I are going to breathe more life and peace into our lives and relationships when we work in harmony with each other. When selfishness and ego rule, we will be op- posed to each other. We become competitive. Then, our marriage be- comes weaker. The family suffers. And just like the Beatles, we will suffer individually as well if we allow selfishness to grow. The enemies to marriage are innumerable. They are not all sexual or have to deal with modesty issues. The most powerful enemies to mar- riage lie hidden in the heart. We can be jealous, selfish, or have an atti- tude that all has to revolve around me. If those things are present in my heart, a healthy marriage becomes impossible. This is where fasting and prayer can play a very practical role in our marriage. We pray for help. Our fasting can send a not so subtle mes- sage to our mind that life is not all about taking things in, consuming, or gathering possessions to myself. Even our accomplishments need a dose of fasting or they take on a life of their own. Fasting can teach me that, "My life isn't about me. It's about life," as Fr. Richard Rohr has said. Without moderation, or moderating disciplines like fasting, some of the activities we embrace in our lives take control of us. When I become driven by things like competition, or hobbies, or when I place my time with friends above the time ! spend with my spouse, then life and mar- riage can lose its balance. Regular prayer and fasting can help keep us grouhded in the basics of life and marriage. Marriage, and the selflessness we learn in the daily in- teractions with our spouse, can teach us prolound truths about the spiri- tual life. Together, these can help us to build a happy and peaceful life together, and forever. We can start today. We can honor our spouses. We can serve them. We can give them our attention. And all this effort does have a reward: ot only brings us closer to each other and to God, but also to peace ] joy. 17!
