Today, we will continue to examine the practical laws that make marriage to work and remain enjoyable.
The Law of Definition: Your definition of marriage must be correct. Marriage is a divine joining and covenant. It is not cohabiting, business arrangement orfamily arrangement. It is not a union proposed by man but by God. It is between man and woman and not man and man or woman and woman. Once your definition is in alignment with that of the maker, then you are on the road to divine maximization of the blessings of marriage.
The Law of Differences: You must understand that men and women are different in everything. A woman speaks for fellowship, men speak for information. If your wife reports a case to you, separate her feelings from the facts. A woman tells you what she wants you to hear and not to solve. Man listens for conclusion and facts. Man is like a kerosene fire sexually while a woman is like a charcoal. Woman is moved by what she hears but a man is moved by what he sees. Our body change differently. Man has more bones and muscles so he is stronger than the woman. Man want to be practical but woman wants to be more beautiful. Let the man do the building and the woman decorates the house. The understanding of this law will help you take advantage of it to build up your home as each one compliments the other.
The Law of love: You must understand what love is to both of you and apply it. Love gives what the other wants and not what you want. A woman wants hug without sex, but a man want hug for sex. Communication and gift is an expression of love. Expressing vocally your life is what a woman appreciates. Woman expresses love in words and emotions but man express it by actions.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to be a doer of the laws of marriage so that my home will be a place of heaven on earth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
