When you wed in Church, God comes into your marriage, making it a tripartite affair of husband, wife and God.
A true Christian marriage is not a union between husband and wife alone but a union of the couple and God.
God is the cement of the Christian marriage. He binds the couple in a way that they become inseparable.
In marriage, the couple is required to work with God as a team. Any matter concerning their marriage is the responsibility of the team: husband, wife and God.
God is permanently available to help them as a couple in what ever they want to do.
But if a couple decides not to make use of him in their marriage, that is their problem. It is left to each couple to seek God’s help and get it. This is done through prayer.
To pray as a couple is to open the door of your marriage to let God in to help you handle whatever marital challenges that you may face.
Those who leave God out of their marriage, face a lot of difficulties without a way out.
You must not leave God out of your marriage. Do not try to do it all by yourself.
If you acknowledge God as the binding force of your marriage, bring him in to play his part, which is a key part to make your marriage successful.
