18+ [ 10 LESSONS FOR YOUNG COUPLES BEFORE MARRIAGE ]



Marriage is a school which we can never
graduate from.

Here are 10 things you should know about
marriage :

1. EVERYONE YOU MARRY HAS A WEAKNESS

Only God has no weakness. Every rose flower
has its own thorn. If you focus too much on your
spouse’s weakness, you can’t get the best out
of his/her strength.

2. EVERYONE YOU MARRY HAS A DARK
HISTORY

No one is an angel, therefore, avoid digging
one’s past. What matters is the present life of
your partner. Old things are passed away. Try to
forgive and forget. The past can’t be changed.
So focus on the present and the future!

3. EVERY MARRIAGE HAS IT’S OWN
CHALLENGES

Marriage is not bed of roses. Every shining
marriage has gone through its own test of hot
and excruciating fire. True love is proved in time
of challenge. Fight for your marriage! Make up
your mind to stay with your spouse in time of
needs. Remember this is the vow you made on
your wedding day!

4. EVERY MARRIAGE HAS DIFFERENT LEVELS OF
SUCCESS

Don’t compare your marriage with anyone! We
can never be equal, some will be far in front and
others far behind. To avoid marriage stresses,
be patient, work hard and with time, your
marriage dreams shall come true.

5. TO MARRY IS TO DECLARE A WAR

When you marry, you must declare a war
against enemies of marriage. Some of the
enemies of marriage are: Ignorance, Rumours,
Prayerlessness, Unforgiveness, Adultery, Third
Party Influence, Stinginess, Stubbornness, Lack
Of Love, Rudeness, Wife battery, Laziness,
winning, nagging, PRIDE, Divorce etc. Be ready to
fight to maintain your marriage zone.

6. THERE IS NO PERFECT MARRIAGE

There is no ready made marriage anywhere.
Marriage is hard work, volunteer yourself and
perfect it daily. Marriage is like a MOTOR CAR
with a gear oil, gear box, etc If these parts are
not properly maintained, the car will break down
somewhere along the road and expose the
occupant to unhealthy circumstances. – Many of
us are careless about our marriage… Are you? If
you are, please pay attention to your marriage.

7. GOD CANNOT GIVE YOU THE COMPLETE
PERSON YOU DESIRE

God gives you, her or him in form of raw
materials in order for you to mold what you
desire. You may desire a woman who can pray
for 1 hour but your wife can only pray for 30
minutes. With your love, prayer and
encouragement, she can improve.

8. TO MARRY IS TO TAKE A RISK

You cannot predict what will happen after
marriage, as situation may change, so, leave a
room for adjustment. Pregnancy may not come
in the next 4 years. You may get married to her
because she’s slim but she becomes a little fat
after a child. He may lose his beautiful job for
years that you have to take the financial
responsibility of the family until he gets a new
job. But with God by your side, you will smile at
long last.

9. MARRIAGE IS NOT A CONTRACT, IT IS
PERMANENT

Marriage needs total commitment, love is the
glue that makes a couple stick together. Divorce
starts in the mind. Never think of divorce! Never
threaten your spouse with divorce. Choose to
remain married! God hates divorce, though it’s
permitted only in extreme cases.
10. EVERY MARRIAGE HAS A PRICE TO PAY
Marriage is like a bank account. It is the money
you deposit into your bank account that you can
withdrawn. If you don’t deposit love, peace and
care into your marriage, you are not a candidate
of a blissful home. There is no free love in
marriage, You cannot love without giving and
sacrificing.
May God grant us the grace and wisdom to
succeed in it. HHJJ
