Making It Last

A woman we know mentioned waiting five years before purchasing a wedding gift—to have some assurance the marriage will last. I don’t know if she really does that, or if she was simply making a point.

So what prevents “I do” from becoming “I’m done!”?

We must keep God first in our marriage.

Where both husband and wife are devoted to God, the success of their marriage is practically guaranteed.

Why? Because both are submitting to God’s standards, such as forgiving one another, serving one another, and speaking the truth in love.

We must make up our minds to stay together.

This is what God wants for marriage (Matthew 19:1-9).

We must not even entertain the thought of divorce.

Instead, together we figure out some way to make it work! It just has to!

Marriage: too precious to throw away!
