What Not To Do:
What To Do:
If Marriage Fails..
..the church fails. If we don’t get it right, even spiritual life will be difficult.
Choosing A Spouse
“A young husband should say to his bride: ‘I have taken you in my arms, and I love you, and I prefer you to my life itself. For the present life is nothing, and my most ardent dream is to spend it with you in such a way that we may be assured of not being separated in the life reserved for us.’” † St. John Chrysostom †
Verses to Memorize
Ephesians 5:22-24; 25-33 | 1st Corinthians 13:4-8
“....never call her simply by her name, but with terms of endearment, with honor, with much love. Honor her and she will not need honor from others, she will not want the glory that comes from others, as she enjoys that which comes from you. Prefer her before all on every account, both for beauty and her discernment, and praise her.”
†-St. John Chrysostom homily 20 on Ephesians†
