Are You Preparing To Get Marry?, Then See This


  Life is based on relationships and relationships are also based on love. 

  Relationship can be define as a state of connectedness between people (especially an emotional connection) according to English Dictionary.

   Now we have many kinds of relationships which I believe we all know about even if not all. We can make mention of personal relationship, friendly relationship, family relationship, business relationship, sexual relationship also marital relationship inclusively. All these kinds exist, though not all people are engaged in all of these relationships but everyone on earth is one way or the other in a relationship.

    Moving straight to the matter at hand I will like us to talk about our subject today, marital relationship. Firstly I would like us to explain the meaning of marriage in our own understanding in the comment session.

  Now let see what the bible says about marriage. In the book of Genesis 2:22-24, we were made to understand how God made a woman for Adam and in the verse 23, Adam made us to understand how much he loves the woman that God gave him. Now the bible explained marriage in the verse 24;

  “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (KJVLite).

  Marriage in this context, I believe has all the elements in all the kinds of relationship we mentioned earlier on if only we will understand this scripture, and that is why marriage shouldn't occur on an impulse act or by forced but rather on understanding and love. 

  Take a look at this verse from Amos 3:3;

  “ Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (KJVLite)

  “The great marriages are partnerships. It can’t be a great marriage without being a partnership.” – Helen Mirren

  On this note I believe marriage shouldn't be limited only on the factor of love but also understanding plays a very important role. If you doubt and have any suggestion please place it in the comment session for us to note.

  “A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.” – Unknown

But know also that love is very important in marriage, in factit is near impossible to marry someone you don't love.

 “To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to be loved by the person you love is everything.” – Unknown

  Moving on I would like to entreat everyone who is about entering into a marital relationship that the first key to a successful marriage isn't love or even understanding as important as they may be, but the first key to have a successful marriage is God. Looking at the Genesis of marriage we see that God was the originator. 

"A godly marriage is when two people who deeply love god decide to love him together."—Unknown.


      I believe that this analogy would help us to understand the purpose of God in our marriage; when you want to buy a new phone where would you go, is it the hospital, bookshop or even the car factory as important as these places are, they cant' help in what you require at that very moment but rather a phone shop. 


Marriage is such a beautiful relationship and a gift from God. It's God's design, created between a man and a woman.   

Whitney Meade

  In the same way the manufacturer of marriage isn't the eyes you used to view the beauty of her or his handsomeness nor the mind that told you she or he is the right one but God the originator of marriage. 

  So I entreat everyone who is in preparation to marry to lift God above any other expectations that you have in marrying. 

  My prayer for you;

  Lord I thank and bless you for the lives of these love ones, Father I pray in the name of Jesus for your son and your daughter, may your unfailing love be graciously multiple on them even as you guide them to their right partners in Jesus name.
