Factors for Success in Marriage - Love

People fall into love as people say and as they say too marriage can is an eye opener. Marriage is an eye opener indeed so one needs to prepare fully before venturing into it.

One major factor that guarantee success in marriage is LOVE. When there is love in the hearts of the two people going into marriage there is a sure way to predict that the marriage will work. The reason is not far fetched, the Bible says LOVE covers a multitude of sins.

No matter the issues that may come up in a marriage in as much as there is love between the people they can surely overcome. Love we learn bears all things and it endures all things. Therefore if love is present in a family the assurance of overcoming difficult times will be there.

Love keeps the couple together, not allowing anyone to come between them even if there is any issue. Love is the bond that keeps couples together.

If indeed there is true and unconditional love in the family there can never be a divorce, and every misunderstanding will be resolved as soon as there is one. Love is a cord that unites a marriage. 

Without love family life can be awry, boring and the strength to forge ahead will not be there. Without love no marriage will be able to face the storms that will come later in life, for surely there will come a time when storms will arise in the marriage, but if love is abiding in the family the storm will not be noticed by outsiders and it won't shake the foundation of the marriage.

Love is an essential ingredient needed to make a marriage succeed, love will make a big difference in the family with or without money. Even when there is a valid problem in the home love will make it easy to overcome such problem. 

Love in marriage can not be overemphasized. Therefore in all ways possible never allow the flame of love to die in your home.

Real love, unconditional love, uncompromising love is only found in God. Therefore go back to Him if such love is not present in your home.

Factors for Success in Marriage - God as the Foundation

I wonder how many go about the issue of marriage as if it is a child's play. They gamble into it and expectedly fumble along the line. But there is a starting point for every home that will experience the peace that family life is supposed to bring.

The starting point in marriage should be God. Christ as the foundation of every family is a sure foundation as much as the individuals are truly committed to Him. The Bible tells us that no other foundation can we lay except that which has been laid - Christ the Foundation.

If you make Christ as your foundation then no matter the storm of life that may come against your marriage you will definitely overcome. There is the parable of Jesus that says anyone that builds his house on the sand will have it come crumbling down when the storms come against it, so also every home not built on the solid foundation can not experience the perfect peace that God had planned for the family when He instituted marriage.

God is the BIG factor in every marriage and when He is left out of the equation it leaves the marriage in shambles. You need to allow God the full measure that He deserves in your marriage, not a half hearted mention most allude to Him in their marriage. He should take the center stage.

We have seen marriages that didn't last more than few weeks or months, then one wonders if that is the marriage that God talks about when He said: He that finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Something very essential must be missing in the equation that is making marriages break up as  fast as they are solemnized. The missing link is the God factor.

Let everyone that wants to get married and really wants to stay in the marriage not leave God behind in his or her selection process. 

Many young people make their choice based on so many immaterial conditions like: money, beauty, splendor, material possessions, prestige, political status, career, etc. Leaving the most important out of the equation.

It is my candid advise that our young people go back to God to help them see into the future and also be content with God's choice for their lives.
