TEN COMMANDMENTS OF A HAPPY MARRIED LIFE
1. Try to understand your mate:
“Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established” (Prov.24:3).
2. Be reasonable in your expectations of each other:
“Be kindly affectionate one to another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another” (Rom.12:10).
3. Do not criticize each other publicly:
“Let us not therefore judge one another any more, but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way” (Rom.14:13).
4. Be comrades in a common cause:
“They twain shall be one” (Matt.19:5).
5. Talk it over:
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord,. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them” (Col.3:18,19).
6. Keep up the love pattern:
“Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.” (S.of S.8:7).
“Husbands love your wives” (Eph.5:25).
“Teach the young women…to love their husbands” (Titus 2:4).
7. Treat your partner with courtesy:
“Be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Eph.4:32).
8. Be loyal to each other:
“Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Rom.13:10).
9. Practice the golden rule of wedded love!
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them” (Matt.7:12).
10. Take Christ into your home:
“If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with Me” (Rev.3:20).
