COMMITMENT

When the explorer, Cortez, landed in Mexico with his 500 men, he did a wise thing; he burned the ships. His men realized that they must be committed to staying and to succeeding here because there was no turning back.

Families have to have that type of commitment… no holding back, no turning back. Marriage has become a sort of temporary thing; if it doesn't work out we'll just walk away.
