Marriage vows matter! In fact, they matter so much, that marriage ceremonies must be recorded in a civil court to be deemed legal. Next one’s relationship with God, marriage is the next most important union.
Divorce happens but should always be a last resort unless physical or emotional abuse of any kind exists. And, for the record, there are women who abuse husbands!
However, if you are a man or woman and your marriage is in trouble request Prayer.
Pray Now! Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Procrastination is the mothership’s most failed relationship. Putting off taking decisive action to save one’s marriage can bring about an undesired outcome.
The Bible makes God’s views about marriage very clear. In addition, those views evidence his passion and concern about the sanctity of marriage.
Consequently, if you believe your marriage is precious in God’s sight then it makes sense to fight for it if there is hope and if the love has not gone.
Scripture for Marriage
” Also, one can be overpowered, but two together can put up resistance. A three-ply cord doesn’t easily snap.” Ecclesiastes 4:12
“That’s how husbands ought to love their wives — in the same way as they do their own bodies. Anyone who loves his wife loves himself. No one ever hates his own body, but feeds it and takes care of it just like Christ does for the church because we are parts of his body.” Ephesians 5: 28-30
Okay, back to reality. Realistically, and in reality, marriage can be difficult when couples grow apart or fall out of love. Without love, there is no incentive to stay committed to one another.
Why don’t more people stop love in its tracks before it falls apart? You know like, lighting the fire again? Well, perhaps it’s because sometimes, once the fire is gone, it’s gone. Both people must be devoted enough to ride out the storm and cover each other.
That said, there are many couples who separate or divorce and live to regret it. Yes, some people leave a mate for somebody else only to find that what they left was a gazillion times better. Sometimes they get to go back and sometimes they don’t.
Leaving on good terms helps, but most relationships don’t end on good terms initially. Kindness, patience, and unconditional love seem to diminish during turbulent emotional times.
It’s just hard to keep it together when one or both people are not committed enough or refuse to change. Because marriage does not just involve two people. These are some reasons why it is important to keep a marriage together.
Okay, since this is a test post that’s enough about marriage for today.
