Marriage is the Bond of Life

Marriage is the Bond of Life

Because of a fear of commitment this generation has carelessly abandoned the bond of marriage by merely living together.  Our society has made it easy to dissolve marital covenant instead of resolving its problems.  “Until death do us part” has been removed from the vows of many marriage ceremonies.

Successful marriages are made up of men and women who are determined to allow their individual strengths and weaknesses to compliment each other.  The secret of happiness is discovered in giving what you wish to receive.  Strong relationships are cemented through communication, caring, cuddling, and commitment.  Irreversible covenant is the glue that bonds and holds a marriage together.

Genesis 2:24

“Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

A very wise friend said, “It would put marriage counselors out of business if husbands and wives would consistently say these three things:  “I love you, maybe you’re right, and I’ll be there.”

  • Don’t let a day go by without saying, “I love you.”
  • Never go to sleep at night with unresolved conflict.  Keep the communication lines open.
  • Remember your vows and be there for each other in sickness and health, good times and bad times.
  • Appreciate and admire each other’s good qualities.  Forgive the failures and accept the inadequacies.
  • Eliminate the word divorce from your vocabulary. Your marriage will last as long as your commitment lasts.
  • Make your fiftieth wedding anniversary the biggest celebration of all!
  • Read Ephesians 5:20-33

“Wives submit yourselves unto your husbands as unto the Lord. ….Husbands love your wives even as Christ loved the church.”  Ephesians 5:22, 25
