What to Remember Before You Call It Quits in Marriage

May 09, 2024 / Saving Your Marriage     

Before you take the first step down that painful path, here are 3 truths to consider.  First, remember your vows.  You promised to have and to hold your spouse from this day forward for better or for worse.  This commitment was meant to be for a lifetime.  Second, remember what marriage is.  It’s not a conditional contract, but an unconditional covenant of love.  The difference?  A contract is all about what you get, but a covenant is all about what you give.  Third, remember the purpose of marriage.  Marriage isn’t just about happiness, but about holiness…a holy union established by God and for God.
