Most couples will spend much time, effort and money on their wedding day, because they know that it isn't just one of those special days, but the most important day of their lives, a day when so many possibilities and opportunities lie before them. Read on to discover why!

Understanding Love

Is it one of the benefits of marriage?

Love is famously the foundation stone of a marriage relationship. Yet what does it actually mean? It's certainly a word that is well used today and yet it seems that we can quite easily fall in and out of love. When looking for the benefits of marriage, surely one major one has to be that love is constant. It might be easier to see that with recent marriages. We are all looking for a relationship where love is dependable and consistent, not just here today and gone tomorrow. Easier said than done?

The stress and strain of life can all too easily allow us to forget about love and just start taking it all for granted. We no longer bother with the loving gesture, touch, remark or gift. Can you remember what you initially loved about your partner? Surely it can't just be an emotion, for our emotions go up and down too easily- which could mean that love gets lost on the downward spiral! No- love has to be a decision, a commitment, felt yes- but sometimes when we don't feel it so well, we might need to make an effort to find it and give it out. Unless we get into the habit of giving our love, our well will run dry. When was the last time you gave someone your love? Do we have to wait for Valentine's Day or could we get into the habit of giving everyday, even with just a loving smile of appreciation. Don't let your love go cold! It needs stoking up like a fire, but when you do- it will burn bright and warm everyone around! A touch of marriage care!

A Definition Of Love

Love is a flower which turns into fruit at marriage.

~Finnish Proverb

Marriage Bible

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easliy angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres. Love never fails."

(I Corinthians 13v4-7)

Why Was Marriage Created?

Right at the beginning, when God created Adam, he decided that he shouldn't be alone and created the woman Eve from the man's rib. Thus began the first ever union of man and woman.

      thanks for the article... marriage is not a kind of game so i am very thankful that i read something about MARRIAGE .. marriage will not be successful if it doesnt have LOVE, TRUST, RESPONSIBILITY, and GOD FEARING ... thanks again.

      It's so refreshing to read something that is "for" marriage rather than railing against it. Thanks so much for posting this!

      Marriage is part of a Divine plan and must be built on Love. Great thoughts on "understanding love" and I love that scripture you shared.

      My marriage is the most important thing in life to me! I don't understand how people can jump around in relationships so easily. It would tear me apart.

      I find it sad that so many Marriages break up so early, children are always the ones that suffer.. Blessed by a Squid Angel :)

      Great lens, I like the verse the most. Most people think love is just a feeling. It is so much more. Good job.

      Very nice. It is a pleasant surprise in these days of throw away relationships to see something about preserving a sacred union. Kudos for including the ultimate definition of love. Not just eros, but storge, filia, and agape.

      By the way, it will be our 25th this summer. We plan to go back to where we spent some of our honeymoon!

      I am one of the few who is happily married and believe in love and marriage. I have been with my hubby for 20 years now and it feels like we just met - he is my soul mate. So this hit home for me and is a wonderful lens. Great job!!!!
