    Marriage matters, but, there must be training, accountability, and continuous marriage counseling for a successful partnership. The partnership must include God to overcome marriage obstacles. Marriage matters, but it does not replace a close intimate relationship with God!

    Marriage matters but… without God as the foundation, being the author and finisher of our faith as well as our marriage, the marriage can be negatively influenced by culture. We must as individuals and as a couple have an intimate relationship with God and always maintain God’s viewpoint to define our identity in Him as well as daily cultivate the marriage or (put in the work) because marriage is ministry and ministry requires character, proper training and accountability to God and to each other. Marriage matters but intimacy with God dictates how all other relationships in your life will flow, grow and flourish!

    marriage matter but…. it’s hard when only one or both parties don’t have a relationship with God. Its like competing with yourself and not knowing why. Not having God in the center of any marriage, better yet, having God first in the woman’s or man’s life its like fighting an uphill battle. There will be no balance, no equality, no compromising. Because one will always challenge or compete with the other. Totally unequally yoked. A man and a woman has to have a relationship with God first. WHY? The relationship will be successful because the person gain an understanding of who they are in Christ, know their position/ place in the relationship, learn what is necessary to make a marriage work via the holy spirit because they allow themselves time to be with the Father and the bridegroom. They have already been through spiritual training. Just like Queen Esther did before she went before the king; it was a process. Even Joseph before he got married to his wife. He had a relationship with God first. I can talk about Abraham and Sara, and other marriages in the bible, but I would be typing all day.. LOL

    Marriage matters, but, unless you have a relationship with God, marriage can be shaky, unless the two are walking with God, you cannot have an healthy marriage because God is the one who created relationships, so in order for you to even be able to build a strong bond you have to be in a relationship with the Creator.
