THINGS THAT DESTROY A MARRIAGE

The propensity to see divorce as the solution for a difficult marriage – has huge and far reaching consequences for any society.
The church must teach that marriage is the bedrock of spiritual maturity.
Two becoming one – takes a lot of growing up.

ME OVER US
When a marriage partner consistently puts their personal choices above – “us choices” – you are heading for real difficulty.
One partner should not have to let go of their uniqueness in order to appease the other partner’s penchant for personal agendas.
Each partner must yield to the other at times – for the sake of us.
Humility yields your rights.
Pride protects your rights.

MINISTRY FIRST
This has become a huge marriage destroyer in the modern church.
People using the call of God and their ministry – to play a oneupmanship game.
Putting your “ministry” above your marriage – is spiritual insanity.
Your first God calling, is to find a partner – produce a family – and raise a God fearing tribe.
If your marriage is in trouble – your ministry is in trouble.

MONEY IS MINE
When couples have separate money accounts – they break the biblical command that two shall become one.
It is wisdom to find out who manages the money better – and with less stress.
It is also wisdom to have agreed budgets for spending.

FAIRY TALES OVER MUNDANE
Some marriage partners want to live in a fairy tale world.
When your upfront persona is spick and span – but your home looks like a war zone – you have issues.
How you keep your home reveals the state of your soul.
When your sparkly persona in public – turns sour when in private – you have issues.
People who are great orators in public – but are calculating and cruel with their words – or lack of them – in private – are destined for disappointment.
Godly contentment leads to great gain.
Be content with the husband of your youth. He may not have risen to the lofty heights of your fairy tale world – but he is faithful to you.
Love the wife of your youth – and take responsibility to present her as Christ has done with his bride – the church.

HAPPY WIFE – HAPPY LIFE
HAPPY MAN – HEALTHY MARRIAGE
