If your plan is to get the best in your marriage, you must play by the rules; understanding the dos and don’ts of a family life.
Below are the things you must not turn your marriage into if you really desire the best in it.
“That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.” Psalms 144:12-15
Never Turn It To Pretence
It’s not a place of pretence. It is not showing to the public that all is well while the truth is all is not well.
Never Turn It into a Place of Slavery
It’s not a slave camp for women where they serve their husbands to death.
Never Turn It To Baby Making
Baby-making was not the original idea of God when he instituted marriage. Though the baby is very important in the family, not having a baby yet does not invalidate a marriage.
Never Turn It To Business Partnership
It is not just about making money together or running the same business. Marriage is about companionship and the bedroom, not the boardroom.
Never Turn It To An Everyday Fight
Marriage is a covenant, not a contract. Couples in great marriages know that marriage is for a lifetime based on the covenant made on the day of the wedding before God and man.
