Expect there to be differences in each other about the way you see things and do not take it personal when your spouse does not see it your way. Sit down and discuss all things and present them to the Lord together. Let the Bible be your guide on all issues, refer to it often and your marriage will last a life time. Congratulations!

Yes. Cherish and Love her and pray with her and Study the Bible together. Put her first. You should have a Beautiful Marriage.

congratulations brother. In few words, it's very difficult to tell you some advice.
However, what I can tell you is from the Ephesians 5: Love, respect and faithfulness. Never try to deceive her, build up your common relationship, your marriage on the lord and his word. Be sure your common goal is to walk together all your life.
Happy wedding

Hello and God bless you! You don't indicate your age....have you and your fiance counseled with your pastor or other clergy? Have you prayerfully sought the Father in regards to your marriage?
There are many directives in God's Word for a successful life and union. See First Corninthians Chapter 7:1-2 Also, see Ephesians Chapter 5:21-33. I pray the Lord's perfect will in your lives.

Having been married very happily for 14 years and from a family with very happy and longlasting marriages, my advice to you is this - consecrate your marriage before and to God. Invite Him into your marriage and do nothing in your marriage that would be displeasing to God and you will do well.

Part 2 Remember Paul's writings on the subject, but remember that it isn't your job to make your wife do her part, you have your own part and that is your responsibility. Remember too, that when you marry, you are entering into a covenant, not a contract. You must give yourself entirely to your wife and she to you.

It is also not too soon to discuss children - how many, how often and how will they be raised.

And, by the way - Congratulations and God Bless.

Plunge in, Jeb. Jump off the high dive.

If you can't swim, listen to Dr. Laura on the radio.
Honestly, Jack and I agree. If you haven't planned for the actual marriage, the statistics are staggering.
---Susan on 3/10/07

If you're just thinking about this question now, less than a month before your wedding, you'd better postpone it, because you started thinking a these issues too late.

"Hold off on the marriage and figure it out before you plunge in."

I everybody waited until they knew everything that it took to make a long lasting marriage, nobody would ever get married. Marriage is a learning experience and a lot of hard work.

Do as the Word instructs, and love her as Christ loved the church. If you will not lay down your "rights," you will certainly never lay down your life. She should respect you and submit to your leadership. Remember, submission does not translate into subserviance. She will be your "helpmate," not your slave.
---Crystal on 3/9/07

I'd like to add: Keep lots of humor between yourselves. Tease without hurting each other. When it's your turn to do the dishes, take her out for dinner like I do :))
---Caring on 3/9/07

Congratulations. Keep God in your marriage at all times, and put him first in all things.
---Rebecca_D on 3/9/07

Congratulations on your forth comming marriage.

The only advice I can give you is respect, trust, love and work together on your relationship with each other. Never take your partner for granted and stay Faithful.
Love the Lord, read the Bible, and pray together.

Hold off on the marriage and figure it out before you plunge in.
We spend more time on the wedding clothes than we do figuring out how to make an actual marriage work. Do your homework, then get married.
---Susan on 3/9/07

Always keep God at the center of your relationship. Pray together. Respect one another always. Help her out with practical stuff like dishes, vacuming, laundry. Tell her you love her. Hug her. A woman is a gentle person and loves to be hugged.

my advice would be humility....that you each think of the other first.
---merry on 3/9/07

Congratulations and may your married life will be a happy one.

Recommendations? Pray together, talk things over, trust each other, help with the dishes. When the need arises, fight and fight it to the end but make peace after 10 minutes.

Mutual respect is a must in a relationship.
