Someone once asked, "How can a good marriage be achieved, if it's never been modeled for you?"
Since most of us tend to follow people who influence our lives, it's a good question.
Did you know that more than half of all marriages end in divorce? And that percentage rises among individuals who come from broken homes. So what can reverse that happening?
Counter culturally, put that person you are vowing to love ahead of yourself. If you say you'll stay with them through thick and thin, then keep your word.
Christ gave us the best prescribed order of priorities. Love God first, then love others. It's truly the best way to ensure a loving, long-lasting relationship with anyone, especially your spouse.
