The meaning of marriage

The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time.

I never knew that being married could be this fun! My husband is amazing and he understands me so well, I could not have imagined doing life with anyone else by my side. I like to look at my marriage as an example how Jesus was treating others with kindness, respect and love. This is what marriage is really about, understanding your spouses’ needs and putting them before your own, communication is the key to every marriage and other relationships. I have been following lots of marriage groups on facebook, and each day I learn how to grow my love for my husband. This summer my husband and I will celebrate two years being married and I am super thankful and grateful to have him in my life. I never knew that I would be married this young ever, especially because my parents were never married, but Jesus had a better plan for my life.

As a Christian I believe that Jesus designed marriage for better or for worse. I love the fact that my husband reminds me daily that the word divorce is not even in our dictionary.  In my opinion no one should be experiencing divorce in their lives. I remember when my dad told me that him and my mom were never married, I was in shock, because I thought they loved each other, but for some people to love each other they don’t have to be married today. In my opinion, Jesus created us women to be with men, there are two verses that stood out to me about marriage that I connect with: Mark 10:8-9 – And the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. I think it is important for every person to have someone in their lives to share things with and laugh with, especially in the unity of marriage, because Jesus created us to be together with an opposite sex and have a marriage full of excitement. This is my second favourite verse in the Bible, Genesis 2:18 – Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” In a marriage you have to compromise, you have to listen and most importantly support, love each other with kindness, respect each other, be honest with one another, and most important trust that Jesus will be there every step of the way to help you through anything and everything, if you are doing those things you will see how Jesus is working things in your marriage through that.

If you are just getting married, or have been married for a while now like myself, I hope you can relate to me through this post. My advice to you is that do not be afraid to communicate with your spouse, talk about things openly, we are all humans yes we might react to things but in the end we have to remember to forgive and move on 🙂

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 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.
