MARRIAGE The Beautiful Happily Ever After - 8 Happy Lifestyles for Married Couples - A Must Read

 The Beautiful Happily Ever After

"Marriage is a sacred covenant done between a man and a woman in the presence of God.It is designed for a companionship and intimacy, BUT, most Importantly GOD designed Marriage to please HIM!" 

(2 Corinthians 5:9 ) - "So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it."

TEN Biblical Principles of  Marriage 
 Adapted from : (walking in the light Magazine) 

 1- Man Needs a Wife. 

God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him" (Genesis 2:18). - This "help mate" for Adam was Eve. God made only one Eve for one Adam-one man and one woman. she is man's complement, essential to the perfection of his being. Without her he is not man in the generic fullness of that term.

2- Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman, initiated by the exchange of vows. "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis 2: 24)

3- The Husband is the head of the house and responsible for the marriage. "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. "(Genesis 3: 16)

4-The Husband is commanded by God to love his wife. "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her " (Ephesians 5:25)

5- The Wife is commanded by God to respect her husband.  "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing."(Ephesians 5:22-24)

6- The Husband and Wife are joint heirs to life. "And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man." (Genesis 2: 22)

7- A Wife is God’s grace to the Husband. "Who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtain favor of the LORD." (Proverbs 18: 22) - The favor mentioned here is unmerited favor or grace from God. That means that men don't deserve all the good they receive from their wives. This is simply a truth that wise men come to learn. Even more so, when a wife truly understands that she was presented by the Lord for her husband, she develops wisdom.

8-The Wife is the most powerful influence over her Husband. "And the man said, The woman whom thou gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat."(Genesis 3: 12) - Adam was more persuaded to seek the pleasure of his wife than to seek the pleasure of God. A Godly man must learn quickly how powerful his wife is over him with her charms and tears. A Godly wife must learn quickly NOT to misuse and harm her husband in trying to get what she wants! - "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones."(Proverbs 12:4) - The greatest harm that can be done to any man is done by his wife. Men can insult men over and over; it just makes them mad and they get “tougher.” When a wife shames her husband, she skewers his heart and vital organs. The barbecue is not pretty. Most wives are not trying to shame or embarrass their husbands. They are trying to motivate and stimulate their husbands, who seem unresponsive to them. The mistake of embarrassment is really unintentional; it just happens. It happens because wives have twisted a major Biblical instruction. Wives (mothers) are to teach their children and serve their husbands. Too often, wives serve their children and attempt to teach their husbands.

9- Marriage is a sexually intimate and passionate relationship. "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." (Genesis 2: 25)

10-Marriage is the mystery of the Messiah’s relationship with us. "This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church."    (Ephesians 5:32) There have been a world full of poets and philosophers explaining love and marriage to us. But this mystery described in the Bible far surpasses them all. If you will ask any married person why they put up with their spouses’ mistakes and quirks, they will give the same answer regardless of gender. “Because, I love him (her).” It is because love covers a multitude of sins. This is the same simple answer for why God continues to deal with us. He loves us, and His love covers the multitude of our sins.


Both the husband and the wife must recognize their blessings and responsibilities in the marriage relationship. The Bible says, "Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence:and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not the power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinence" - (1 Corinthians 7:3-5).

A Marriage Prayer 
(Bud Henry Bowen) 

Bless this marriage, O God, as ____ and ____ begin their journey down the road of life together. We don't know what lies ahead for the road turns and bends. But help them to make the best of whatever comes their way.

Help them to hug each other often, talk and laugh a lot. Help them to continue to enjoy each other as they did when they first met. Help them to realize that nothing nor no one is perfect and to look for the good in all things and all people including themselves. Help them to respect each other's likes and dislikes, opinion and beliefs, hopes and dreams and fears.Help them to learn from each other and to help each other to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Help them to realize that there is design and purpose in their lives as in the world, and if they will hold onto each other, they will know that things have a way of working out for the good.Help them to create for their children a peaceful, stable home of love as a foundation on which they can build their lives. But most of all, dear God, help them to keep lit the torch of love' that they now share in their hearts so that by their loving example they may pass on the light of love to their children and to their children's children forever. Amen.
