Today we will continue to examine the practical laws that make marriage enjoyable.
The Law of DEFINITION: Your definition of marriage must be correct. Marriage is a divine joining and covenant. It is not cohabiting, a business arrangement or a family arrangement. It is not a union proposed by man but God. It is between a man and a woman and not a man and a man or a woman and a 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. Women speak for fellowship, men speak for information. If your wife reports a case to you, separate her feeling from the fact. A woman will tell you what she wants you to hear and not to solve; men listen for conclusion and facts. A man is like a kerosene fire sexually while a woman is like a charcoal. A woman is moved by what she hears but a man is moved by what he sees. The body changes differently. Men have more bones and muscles so they are stronger than the women. A man wants to be practical but a woman wants to be more beautiful. When building a house, the man should do the building while the woman decorates the house. The understanding of this law will help you take advantage of your differences to build up your home such that 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 wants hug for sex. Communication and giving of gifts are expressions of love. Expressing vocally your love is what a woman appreciates. Women express love in words and emotions but men express love 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.
