Building a strong marriage is like building a house. The first step is consulting the architect who draws up the blueprint or plan for the house. An architect makes sure that the house is safely designed, and will last for a long time. We may have our own designs for our home but they may have structural flaws which could eventually ruin the building. Similarly we need to look to God who made the blueprint for a lasting marriage.
You have vowed before God t love, honour and cherish each other till your death. This commitment may have seemed easy on your wedding day but learning to live that commitment takes a lifetime. Every marriage faces challenges sooner or later. These challenges however don’t have to define your marriage. A successful marriage is one that is built on a strong spiritual foundation.
