Couples ought to live in peace and harmony,love should be at the centre of every marriage!God is the author of marriage and there is nothing we can do about the structure He laid down,His principles can never change even if people try to modify it so that it could fit into their own selfish interest,the word of God is true forever. "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh"Ephesians 5:31-35

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" Genesis 2:24

Many marriages today are suffering because there is no cleaving between the husband and the wife,some couples don't even "leave to cleave" they spend most of their years in settling disputes,mending walls and dwelling in regret. The man is looking for a perfect wife at home and the woman expectations too are so high that she feels miserable everytime!!!

Listen,you can not put man in the position of God!!! Proverb 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Your spouse complains alot ? He or she is not usually satisfied no matter how you try to put in your best in everything? One of the reasons may be that ,the  expectations of your spouse are so high that he or she feels you hold the keys to the happiness in that marriage. 

Marriage is not meant to be sorrowful but so many people are in tears and pains,so many couples feels God's word does not matter in their homes,they are so rigid and determined that no one can change their decisions or opinions on their marriage issues!!! God lives forever and the moment you breathe
 your last breath you must give account of your marital  life!!! 

Malachi 2:14 Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the LORD has been witness Between you and the wife of your youth, With whom you have dealt treacherously; Yet she is your companion And your wife by covenant"

2Corinthians 5:10 says "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad"

Marriage is not meant to be endured by both parties but enjoyed,marriage is honourable if the bed is not defiled,adultery is a big set back in building a successful marriage." Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral" Hebrew 13:5

Marriage Etiquette for all couples??

1.Respect :You must honour each other ,some men compares their wives with friends and family and some women too feels their husbands should be able to live exactly like their brothers or dads.

Do you greet your spouse when you wake up?or you expect him or her to greet you first?women should honour their husbands more because it is commanded by God."Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband"Ephesians 5:33

2.Stop expecting much!!! The reason you don't appreciate your spouse is because you have not understood the love of God fully,it takes Love to build a successful marriage 

What is Love??

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 1Corinth 13:4-8

Stop reporting you spouse to families and friends!!! Do your own part of the words of God and intercede for your partners,allow God to be at the centre of your home,expect God to intervene and allow Him to work on your marriage. 

The journey to unending marital peace begins with you accepting Jesus Christ as your LORD and saviour.  "Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again." John 3:3 repent and forsake your sins,God is willing to forgive you  Revelation 3:20 " knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me"

May God help you in Jesus name...
Jesus Christ is waiting for you!!!
