How to make your marriage work

It is not rocket science to make your marriage work.

My classmate once sent me a mail on Facebook that got me thinking hard. After our Matric, he travelled to the US to further his career while I went on to further my studies in business studies. He got a hold of me on Facebook and told me about his tumultuous marriages. He wanted to find out from me the secrets in making my marriage work.

I learned, from our conversation, how he had gone through horrible relationships that left him an emotionally broken man. If you are a married couple or planning to get married someday, remember that marriage is an institution. It is similar to your university institution or a college. This means you will never stop learning until you both leave this earth. If you are not ready to be taught, then marriage may not be for you. If you are ready to share and tolerate one another, then chances are that you will enjoy a long and lasting marriage. Here is what the Bible says:

Genesis 3:24
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

When God spoke these words, He created a spiritual law. When God said the two (man and woman) shall become one flesh, He used the same authority when He said “let there be light, and there was light“. So God instituted the family unit and called marriage into being just as He called light or the earth into being. This is why marriage is sacred and it must not be taken lightly.


If you are planning to be married temporarily, you are breaking the law of God and we know that laws work. This law is so powerful that when two people get married, they end up resembling one another by changing their DNA. This is the law of marriage at work, it is able to change the nature of another person. Enjoying your marriage is not rocket science, it starts with fellowship, which just means sharing. Communication is the key to marriage. My wife and I communicate on many things and I get interested in what she has to say. Don’t always look out for your interest in marriage, look out for the other party’s interest too. Communicate and get excited about life.

Pray aloud:
Father, I thank you for the institution of marriage. I am learning and growing everyday as I hone my skills in this institution. Mould me and make me more like you in Jesus’ name. Amen.


If you have prayed this prayer write to us and we will pray for you and send you materials that will bless you.
