What should we know about marriage?

Wisdomforlife

ImageSomeone once asked why so many married people seem so miserable.

“Perhaps,” another responded, “it’s because so many miserable people are married.”

Maybe marriage itself is not the problem.

With a 50 percent divorce rate for first time marriages and an increase of 10 percent for second, third and fourth marriages, the Church must expect to be involved in significant marriage related ministries.

Like many other pastors, I invest large amounts of time on four levels of marriage related ministry:

  1. Preventative ministries
  2. Maintenance ministries (marriage tune-ups)
  3. Interventional ministries
  4. Restorative ministries

Marriage ministries have become a big part of Church life. And this is one reason for the need to take a closer look at marriage.

I suggest 4 essentials to marriages and 7 purposes for marriage in the post,A Closer Look at Marriage.
