How Healthy Is Your Marriage Relationship?Good marriages last for ever! NeedEncouragement.com

Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.

A marriage relationship will go through many ups and downs and many struggles, but the ones that can talk things out and work together as a team are the ones that stay together! A healthy marriage is a three-way partnership where God is the head, and the man and woman are under His authority.

Without a man and woman working together, the relationship is in vain and will be miserable or end up in a divorce that affects not only their lives but the lives of their friends and family.  A person does not go into marriage thinking they will be getting a divorce, but better planning and premarital classes can be helpful for a healthy marriage relationship. ~ Bill Greguska

 

Jeremiah 29:6  Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.

How To Have A Strong Marriage Relationship That Lasts?

Want a healthy marriage relationship? NeedEncouragement.comLearn from both what others have done in their successful marriage relationship. And also learn from those in a relationship, like mine, that did not work. It takes two willing and committed partners to stick together through the storms of life. Otherwise, the storms will overtake the marriage relationship and crash into the rocks! A healthy marriage relationship starts with God and takes effort, energy, forgiveness, patience, understanding, commitment, mutual submission, and love!

Every marriage, when it starts, has two people (both who have a sinful nature) who bring their own “baggage” or “preferences” that need to be somehow blended to make the two people into one. Each spouse does not have to lose their identity; instead, they gain a philosophy of teamwork through communication and compromise, all under the authority of Jesus Christ. I was married for almost ten years, which ended in a divorce. Looking back at what I know now, I would have done some things differently. I would have focused on our communication more and gotten to know her better when we dated. Sometimes learning from what others went through makes it, so you do not have to reinvent the wheel, sort to say. ~ Bill Greguska

The Marriage Relationship Is Like A Dance!

Unfortunately, my ex-wife and I did not see things eye to eye almost from the start, yet I always hoped that we would grow together and work together on our marriage. 

  1. Do you always need to be right in your marriage relationship?
  2. Do you work together as a team or as individual players?
  3. Are you good at forgiving?
  4. Do you think you’re good at apologizing?
  5. Is your marriage partner your best friend?

If marriage is centered on God and each other, the success of the marriage should be okay, but commitment, sacrifice, and teamwork need to be present.

 

 


 

Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

1 Peter 3:7 ESV 

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel since they are heirs with you of the grace of life so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Hebrews 13:4 ESV 

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Matthew 19:4-6 ESV 

He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, 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.”

Ephesians 5:33 ESV

However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Ephesians 5:31 ESV

“Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”

Ephesians 5:22-33 ESV 

Wives, submit to your own husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now, as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word.

Ephesians 4:2-3 

With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Genesis 2:24 ESV 

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Genesis 2:18 ESV 

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

Ephesians 5:25 ESV

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

Ephesians 5:22 ESV 

Wives, submit to your own husbands as to the Lord.

Romans 7:2 ESV

For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage.

2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV 

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
