Guidelines To A Happy Marriage
Establish your own private home: once you decide to settle down as a couple, get your own private home to start a family together. You can rent an apartment or you can start saving for a home early during courtship.
Continue in courtship: – Marriage is not the end of courtship but a continuation of courtship .Make it your priority to love, care and appreciate your spouse while in your journey of marriage. Do not take more out of your marriage than you put into it,
Always keep in mind that God joined you together in marriage :-Your family Members or friends are not the ones who joined you together, so in case of any problems in your marriage first seek God who brought you together to be one.
Always guard your thoughts:– Avoid at all cost exposing yourself to anything that suggests impurity which will taint your view on marriage (phonography). Having uncontrolled thoughts is like an automobile in neutral on a hill, anything can happen and the results are disastrous.
Never retire for the night angry at each other.
Allow Jesus Christ to be the foundation and leader of your home:-
Agree to fight together as a couple and not against each other
