SINCE marriages are ordained by Jehovah God, it is essential to subscribe to His principles if marriages are to be happy.
It is worth noting Jehovah God performed the first marriage, hence we should emulate Him if marital unions are to be worthwhile.
According to the book of creation, Genesis 2:22-23, God made the first woman and brought her to the man, which was Adam…and Adam was so happy that he said: “This is at last bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.”
God still wants married people to be happy today because He is the same Jehovah God today, tomorrow and forever, as the Bible attests.
I have often heard both parties in marriage trade accusations if things do not work out in that marriage.
Yet, the reason for such failures stem from failure to subscribe to Jehovah God’s principles.
Having a happy and exciting marriage is not about having lots of money, owning a mansion or driving expensive cars. It is all about subscribing to the principles of the Almighty Jehovah God.
A happy marriage is not obtained from riches, wealth, so-called prophets, church founders, pastors, parents, best friends, lecturers, women’s groups or human rights organisations, you simply enjoy a happy marriage when you truly follow Jehovah God.
When a couple gets married, it may think everything will be perfect. Realistically, though, no matter how much a husband and wife love each other, marriage will always have some problems.
However, for a marriage to be exciting at all times and until death do ‘us’ part, the two parties in a marital union must accept their roles as given by Jehovah God.
Ephesians 5:23 sates, “The husband is the head of the family.”
This literally means that if you are a husband, Jehovah God expects you to care for your wife tenderly.
God made a wife as a complement of the man, and He therefore wants the man to treat her with dignity and love. This is also confirmed in 1 Peter 3:7, Genesis 2:18.
For a wife, Jehovah God expects respect the husband. This role is defined in 1 Corinthians 11:3 and Ephesians 5:33.
A wife must always support decisions of her husband and wholeheartedly cooperate with him.
The moment a wife respects and supports her husband, she automatically becomes beautiful in his eyes and in the eyes of the Creator of the universe, who is Jehovah God as put in 1 Peter 3:1-6.
To discourage the devil taking centre stage in a marriage, partners must always care about their mate’s feelings. As a husband or wife, they need to look out for the interests of your marriage mate (Philippians 2:3, 4).
Always treat your spouse as precious, remembering our Creator, requires his servants to be gentle towards all.
Bear in mind that thoughtless speech is like the stabs of a sword, but the tongue of the wise is a healing.
May I take this opportunity to urge both husband and wife to carefully choose words when interacting on daily basis.
Our Creator, Jehovah God’s spirit shall surely help the married couple speak with kindness and love provided it subscribes to Him alone (Galatians 5:22, 23) and (Colossians 4:6).
