Bible Verses About Marriage and Love

  • "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

    "Why then," they asked, "did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?"

    Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning."

    Matthew 19:4-8

  • The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

    1 Corinthians 7:3-5

  • Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

    Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

    May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer - may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

    Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man's wife? Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?

Bible Verses for Wives

    Proverbs 12:4

  • Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

    Colossians 3:18

  • Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children

    Titus 2:3-4

  • a quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof.

    Proverbs 19:13b

  • A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

    Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

    She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

    She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

    She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.

    She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.

    She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

    She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

    She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.

    In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

    She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

    When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

    She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

    Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

    She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.

    She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.

    She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

    She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

    Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

    "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."

    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

    Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    Proverbs 31:10-31

Bible Verses for Dating Couples

  • Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?

    2 Corinthians 6:14-16a

  • Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.

    Song of Solomon 2:7

Wedding Bible Verses

  • Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

    1 Corinthians 13:4-7

  • "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?

    Matthew 19:4-6
