Love Is the Cornerstone of marriage
What makes a solid foundation for marriage is love. But there is no love without sacrifice. The amount of sacrifice defines the depth of love. Each one in the family sacrifices themselves for the benefit of others to love each other. Sacrificing something for themselves is not love. Instead loves forces one to sacrifice for another person they love. Letting go of a hobby to spend time with a wife and children is a sacrifice. God showed us what is greatest love is. He sacrificed his own son Jesus on the cross to show the true meaning of love.
Please sit down and think through what is driving your relationship. Is it love, mutual attraction, or lust?
Let's look at some of the root causes of relationship issues:
Who owns what:
In marriage, both wife and husband own everything with equal rights. There should be clear financial transparency between them. When there is no financial transparency, it leads to doubts about each other’s lifestyle.
Avoid doubts in marriage at any cost. Please make sure your spouse does not doubt you at any point in time. If your spouse doubts the relationship between you and your friend (same or opposite sex), try to avoid the relationship. Marriage is more important than friendship. Your spouse's happiness decides your family's happiness.
Runaway from Secret addiction:
Let our life be as transparent as possible with your spouse. Many write to us about their secret addictions in betting, pornography, extramarital relationships, and other secret additions. The secret addictions will destroy the marriage. Addictions will always come to light one day or the other. All secret addictions are preset time bombs. Once it explodes a person will be left only with shame and guilt. Please run away from all the addictions. Holy Spirit can help you to come out of all the past addiction. If you need counseling or medical help please approach your local experts.
Some bring their positions and authority from office to home. They expect to be respected by their wife and children. Husband and wife need to leave their ego at the office.
Remember who brought you together?
It is always God who brings husband and wife together. There is an old say, Marriages are made in heaven. God did establish marriage between husband and wife. God himself conducted the first marriage between Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. He found it was not good for man to live alone. Hence he found a companion. The institution of marriage was established by God. Is it right for individuals to walk away from what God has established without his consensus? Bible says, Let no man separate what God has united.
Remember Your Vow
Marriage vow could be different in different cultures and religions. But the underlying meaning is the same. Here is a sample of the vow you would have made during your marriage. The vow was not made to the priest or the congregation. But it was made to the Lord, who created the heaven and the earth. God is very serious about the vow we make with him. He expects us to follow it through the ups and downs of our life.
I, ____, take you, ____, to be my (husband/wife). I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.
Dear Friend, Are you ready to commit your life for your spouse in ups and down till death separates them? Independent of whether you are married or about to get married, it's important to make the right choices and decisions.
The marriage vow is very similar to the vow God made to man. God says, "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.". God's love never changes over time. It does not change based on the situation. God expects the same in our marriage.
