Our marriage, our testimony of love to one another

Marriage is not an obligation. It is not an acquired responsibility. It is not an opportunity to continue fooling one another.

Marriage is a testimony of love for one another. Each day is an opportunity to demonstrate that love in unimaginable and unthinkable ways.

Have fun with your spouse, not fights. Fall in love with your spouse each day. Bring your spouse to a lifetime of dates. Overwhelm your spouse with your love. Impress your spouse. Compliment your spouse in every way, rather than complain. You will both be the hero of each other, for now and ever.

Was it not for Christ sent of God, we would not know the deep and rich value of one toward the other.

In more details,

“Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” (Ephesians 5:22-33)
