I have given many pieces of advice on how to have a successful marriage. Today, I want to talk about the steps to build a happy Christian marriage.
Simply put this very article is all about marriage from the Christian point of view.
In this article, I want to uncover the most important aspect of Christian marriage that every Christian must know and the benefits of playing by these rules, which will, in turn, promote a highly successful and happy marriage.
You will also learn the Christian marriage procedure and Christian marriage rituals.
At last, you will be fully equipped with what defines Christian marriage.
The Church Teaching And it’s Effectiveness
There have been the usual teachings about the duties of the husband and the activities of a wife in promoting and building a happy marriage; it is all over the internet.
So many prominent marriage counselors have written several books on marriages, marriage preparations, and dating, yet I realize that they have not helped in curbing the problems in marriages.
It is very much an opposite to the known steps to building a happy Christian marriage.
In this very article, I want to share the experiences I had in my marriage, this includes the ups and downs that I experienced in my 15 years of marriage.
My personal Marriage Story:
It all started in 2005 when I decided to get a helpmate. I thought I had grown very well to fit into the institution called marriage, I thought I knew everything there is to know about marriage before I rushed into it,
I thought it was all about seeing a beautiful woman and getting married to her. No, it very much more than that, there are proper steps to building a happy Christian marriage every couple must take.
Let me tell the truth: no one can achieve any success in anything in life alone without the help of God, and marriage is not an exception. My ignorance of the fundamental concepts of marriage made me face so many challenges.
There were times when I think my marriage will collapse. Things were so rough, It was quarreling every day. But that was not my initial plan.
I Was Very Wrong:
At my early age, I use to see some married couples holding hands as they walk the street, talking and laughing, and I told myself that one day I will have such a wonderful marriage too.
Yes, of course, It started like that and it is still like that. But marriage is more than holding hands and walking in the street.
Other things happen inside the house that I did not see. Those are the things everybody should know before going into marriage.
When the challenges became too much for me, there was nothing again left for me to do, then I had to get down on my, knees asking God for the next line of action. I thank God for promptly answering my prayers.
As God started showing me the ways I should go about it, I realized that those usual teachings in the church are very inadequate in helping couples build a happy Christian marriage.
Christian marriage is completely more than that. You must have the full knowledge of what building your marriage in a Christian way is all about.
