It actually can become harder if it's God's will because the goal of 
marriage isn't necessarily happiness it's actually holiness.



There are many parts of marriage that are great but when we realize that every relationship in our life is meant to point us to Jesus and to conform us into His image.

God defines love not as what we get but what we give and that really is what marriage is all about and if we don't understand marriage then we're gonna go into dating and other relationships wrongly so we really need God to help us and show us his design and his purpose for marriage. Let's see what the Bible says about marriage.



    Bible Verses About Marriage


    Let's see some of the best Bible verses about marriage but before we need to understand the real meaning of marriage.

    Marriage is all about covenant bond and if you don't know what a covenant is it's a pledge or a promise about what you will do regardless of what the other person does.

    Most people approach marriage much more like a contract or an agreement. But a covenant is an opposite - I am committed to this regardless that is why we say "in our vows in sickness and in health whether we're poor or whether we're rich or whether it's for better or for worse I am pledging myself to you when it's amazing and when it's hard until death do us apart".


    Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
    ~Ephesians 4:2-3

    Bible verses for marriage

    The very first marriage in the Bible appears in Genesis it's about Adam and Eve and a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh.

    So, when marriage is a joining a man and a woman becoming one coming together under God to become one body. It does not say that two halves become one and I see people getting this wrong all the time when they say they need to find their other half to complete them no it says two whole people become one you in and of yourself are complete in Christ.

    It takes two people who are a whole and complete to make a marriage work but just as in order to become one with Christ we have to die to ourselves so in marriage, we have to take up our cross daily and die to our own desires that we could serve one another in another.

    Bible Verses About Relationships

    Marriages pointed out a relationship of Jesus in his church. Jesus chose to leave His father's house and through his death on the cross that he could be joined to his bride and his people could become one flesh one body and one unit with him.


    And this is how Paul tells us to do marriage he says 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 of the 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.

    So, husbands role is to lay down his life for a wife just as Jesus did and to care for her just as Christ loves the church

    So, it is also very important that we must have a solid relationship with Jesus before getting married how can you love your wife as Christ did if you don't understand His love for you and how can you make her holy if you don't know the Word of God to wash it with and how are we to love her when we realize she is broken and sinful just like us and yet Jesus still loves us in our weakness.
