Marriage


What does the Bible teach about marriage? Marriage is a permanent, committed partnership between a man and a woman. It's in the Bible, Matthew 19:5-6, TLB. "And that a man should leave his father and mother, and be forever united to his wife. The two shall become one—no longer two, but one! And no man may divorce what God has joined together.
How should husbands relate to their wives? It's in the Bible, Ephesians 5:25-28, TLB. "And you husbands, show the same kind of love to your wives as Christ showed to the church when He died for her…That is how husbands should treat their wives, loving them as parts of themselves. For since a man and his wife are now one, a man is really doing himself a favor and loving himself when he loves his wife!
Husbands should honor their wives. It's in the Bible, I Peter 3:7, TLB. "You husbands must be careful of your wives, being thoughtful of their needs and honoring them as the weaker sex. Remember that you and your wife are partners in receiving God's blessings, and if you don't treat her as you should, your prayers will not get ready answers."
How should the wife relate to her husband? It's in the Bible, Ephesians 5:22-24, TLB. "You wives must submit to your husbands' leadership in the same way you submit to the Lord. For a husband is in charge of his wife in the same way Christ is in charge of His body the church. (He gave His very life to take care of it and be its Savior!) So you wives must willingly obey your husbands in everything, just as the church obeys Christ."
Does that mean the wife must do all the "give and take"? No! Marriage requires submission by both partners. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 5:21, NIV. "Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ."
What counsel forbids physical or verbal spouse abuse? It's in the Bible, Colossians 3:19, NIV. "Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them."
For a successful marriage, determine to settle misunderstanding at once. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 4:26, TLB. "If you are angry, don't sin by nursing your grudge. Don't let the sun go down with you still angry—get over it quickly."
Keep the relationship growing in unity and understanding. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 4:2-3, TLB. "Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Try always to be led along together by the Holy Spirit, and so be at peace with one another."
How should society view marriage? It's in the Bible, Hebrews 13:4, NIV. "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral."
By what commandments has God guarded marriage? The seventh and the tenth. It's in the Bible, Exodus 20:14, 17, NIV. "You shall not commit adultery." and "You shall not covet your neighbor's wife."
What is the only acceptable reason that Jesus gave for ending a marriage? It's in the Bible, Matthew 5:32, NIV. "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to commit adultery, and anyone who marries a woman so divorced commits adultery."
For how long is marriage intended to last? It's in the Bible, Romans 7:2, NIV. "By law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage."
What instruction is given about who to marry? It's in the Bible, II Corinthians 6:14, RSV. "Do not be mismated with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?"
Romance and the gift of sexuality are blessed by God when exercised within the bonds of marriage. It's in the Bible, Proverbs 5:18-19, TLB. "Let your manhood be a blessing; rejoice in the wife of your youth. Let her charms and tender embrace satisfy you. Let her love alone fill you with delight."
