Your commitment is what binds you and your spouse together for better or for worse...richer or poorer...in sickness and health.
In a day when half of all marriages fail, we all need insight that stands the test of time. We need wisdom from Scripture to equip us to transform our own union from a lacklustre contract into an intimate and exciting relationship.
Whether you're recently engaged, just realizing the honeymoon is over, or celebrating your golden anniversary, Insight for Living remains committed to helping couples cultivate honesty, exhibit grace, and experience a joy and intimacy in marriage that they never thought possible.
“Troth” isn’t a word we often use. It’s a solemn pledge made at the altar between a bride and a groom, a pledge to remain faithful to one another. Maybe it’s a word we should start using again.
If you’re jealous or overprotective of your spouse you risk smothering. True honouring is the opposite—honouring allows your spouse to be free to be his or her own person.
As time passes a marriage can easily become neglected. And neglect makes it susceptible to harmful influences. But a marriage that’s given care an attention thrives. The honeymoon doesn’t have to end!
Chuck Swindoll affirms a reasonably good marriage may not sound exciting but it’s both real and achievable. Marriage enhances life because you’re in it together. The world keeps changing but God’s design for marriage hasn’t. It’s the basis of the family and even society.
People don't always give marriage the time it needs to grow and mature. Instead, we give up on the pattern God instituted and look for quick fixes and easy outs. Paul reminds us that there is a better way.
Ephesians 5:22-6:9 presents unfamiliar, often unexplored territory in the oceans of marriage.
Men, accept your wife completely; love her unconditionally. A wife thrives in that kind of context. What it leads to, in the long haul, is commitment.
Honouring one another is essential for healthy relationships. Take time to show your loved ones how much you value and cherish them. You’ll never regret the time you spend nurturing these relationships.
Men, take time each day to affirm and encourage your wife. Honouring her is a role that only a husband can fill.
