Are you building a fence, or dig a well?

I learned recently that ranchers in many parts of Australia have few if any fences. What keeps the livestock from running off? The rancher provides the only water in the area, and so the animals don’t roam very far.

I think the same thing is a good plan in marriage – provide your bride with what she wants and needs, and you won’t have to worry about her “wandering off”. Granted you may not be the only water around, but if what you offer is really good, she will have no reason to wander.  When I say wander off, I don’t just mean cheating, I mean her heart wandering away from you.  If she becomes dry, at the very least her love for you will wilt – don’t let that happen?
