Married couples often struggle due to lack of commitment in their marriage. Being committed to your spouse means much more than just not cheating on him or her. If we are truly to be one flesh we must be committed in all areas of our marriage.
To be united as one we must be committed:
Dr. Tom Ellis, chairman of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Council on the Family said that for “…born-again Christian couples who marry…in the church after having received premarital counseling…and attend church regularly and pray daily together…” experience only 1 divorce out of nearly 39,000 marriages
We must be open and honest in our finances. Financial decisions need to be made together as a couple and couples need to be committed not to buy things they can’t afford.
Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, said, “Despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, I have not yet been able to answer the great question: What does a woman want?”
Men need to be dedicated to understanding their wife’s emotions. They also need to value and cherish their wives.
1 Corinthians 7:2-5 (The Message)
Hebrews 13:4 (English Standard Version)
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
Sexual intimacy is God’s gift to us as a husband and wife to protect satisfy and guard our relationship
