I have heard a lot of great things about The Crown (the series about Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix) and have finally started to watch it (only two episodes in). So far I am enthralled by the story and one theme, in particular, has really grabbed a hold of me: Duty. โ
As I watched I wondered, what would that be like? To feel such a strong sense of loyalty? To set aside personal desires and needs to serve something bigger?โ
Then it dawned on me, in a small way that is what marriage is. A joyful duty of putting someone's needs before your own. Seeking to love, listen, and serve your spouse first and trusting that they will do the same for you.โ
Just like in The Crown, it won't always be easy or even desirable but it is for a greater good and in the end is worth it.
