The Two Are United into One

Did someone tell you marriage would be a breeze? That you would have a wonderful time living with your spouse 24/7? That you would never argue or get on each other’s nerves? They lied. Marriage is not always easy. So, how do two people who don’t think alike, who don’t feel the same about everything, become one. I guarantee it’s not by just saying, “I do.”

Becoming one…learning to live together…is a process. And this process doesn’t have as much to do with the body or the spirit as it does with the mind. It’s a labor in progress to work out the misunderstandings, the botched communication, the disagreements, the financial problems, the differences in parenting, the clashing goals. That means working with your mind, your will, and your emotions to reach a point of harmony with your spouse.

You can know spiritually what’s the right thing to do, but that doesn’t mean you’ll end up doing it.

The two are united into one. Genesis 2

These words are used in many marriage ceremonies, but it doesn’t just happen. The uniting is an on-going activity. What might you do today to better the relationship between you and your spouse?

How To Make Your Woman Happy

LOL.

The Bible has a very different view, one built on mutual respect.

So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5

Wow. A husband is to love his wife as he loves himself. That. Is. Commitment. That’s devotion and loyalty. And, in return, a wife is to respect her husband. But, why not, he is totally faithful to her. Isn’t that the kind of marriage you want?

Men, doesn’t this seem easier than that list of 54 things?

And, women, wouldn’t you rather have a marriage like this than one based on only sex and alcohol?
