I think the foundation is to seek the Lords will and have him as the center of the marriage. Commitment and accountablity is vital. Then physical, not to be looked as least but having the others in proper order makes the marriage great.

The foundation of marriage is built on mutual trust and respect for each other. A bonding as one, so you would never do anything to hurt your spouse. To thine own self be true. You cherish, support and encourage each other to succeed in life. Communication is the key. Everything is discussed as an equal partnership so small problems do not escalate. You pray together, study the scriptures and lead by example. Date nights once a week are the glue that holds marriages together.

2- What you did before marriage should not end with the vows. Small notes saying I love you and small gifts work miracles when left around the house. no one feels taken for granted. Flowers for no reason. Candlelight dinners kindle romance. Many forget it was the little things that attracted each other in the first place. When one or both become selfish, the relationship is destroyed. No one is perfect, but you work on it together as one and forgive.

Your pastor is correct. As person who has had over 30 years experience in marriage counseling, plus being married 44 yrs., commitment has to come first. (Almost51% of divorces come from Christian couples. On investagation, most of them will tell you they lost their commitment to the spouce.) While a person may think being a Christian is most important, without that commitment in marriage, a couple will become stagnat spiritually.

Genesis 2:24 (King James Version) Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
This when God established marriage before sin.

Many couples have Christ and still get divorced but no one gets divorced if they will have an undying commitment because they will work it out until it works.

Jesus Christ in the foundation of any marriage and everything else comes from God's foundation.

foundation of marriage is commitment
The foundation of our lives is Jesus Christ, so I don't think he dug deep enough to give the raw truth unless of course he meant commitment to Jesus.
That's the hammer that smooths every surface, that's the truth of any man's integrity in anything when no one is looking.
The unregenerate are arrogant to think that something from themselves is good, God is the beginning and end of knowledge.

I believe that our foundation should be in jesus.then commitment ,or love for God and his word.then we can look for a spouse.we must first learn commitment to jesus and God before looking for it in a earthly relationship.

I would agree with him. Commitment is the foundation. You don't have a marriage without it. You can be married without Jesus (not suggested) but without commitment you will be divorced at the fist hardship.
