The Five Inevitable Stages In Relationships

The Five Inevitable Stages In Relationships

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Break-ups eventually occur if relationships are not built on strong biblical principles and foundation.

There are five processes or stages a relationship has to pass through progressively to avoid possible break-ups.

1. Attraction

There must be physical attraction between both parties. Never start a relationship with someone you are not physically attracted to. God will not force anybody on you.
Moreover you will be doing yourself a lot of good when you marry somebody you are attracted to, so that your eyes can be on your spouse only!

However, the relationship cannot thrive on attraction alone. It must move on to the next stage. This is the stage you are all over each other.

God help you if you are writing an examination at this time, when you open your books to read, you see his/her face!
It happened to me, I got engaged to my wife at examination time! Thank God I didn’t fail.

This is the time you feel your partner is right and every other person is wrong. You need to be careful at this time, making sure your relationship with God is intact so that you can still hear Him speak to you. What is the next stage?

2. Disturbance

This is the stage when the parties begin to realize their differences, and see in other people qualities they admire.

If their love is not genuine, the relationship is certain to collapse here. They start picking on themselves here. The guy begins to reason properly and the lady begins to get hurt easily.

He starts complaining that she has changed and vice-versa, but in reality, none has changed, they just suddenly start seeing what they refused to see before.

Love blinded them initially, but the eyes begin to open!

To be continued…

I am patient. I am not hasty. I am led of God

I receive the grace to be patient in Jesus name. I receive help from God’s Spirit to stay with God’s plan for my life and relationship

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. – James 1:2-3 (MSG)
