I could say bitter things was married 15yrs It changed me because I was only a teen it made me grow up, have confidence, gave me lovely children, taught me patience, grace and to forgive and forget. So see even a "wicked bad divorced" person can say nice things about marriage. I am being sarcastic yet true- dont take it personally its just that when U are divorced most Christians put you on the outside, like the last kid picked for dodge ball. Smile I hold no bitternes!

My first marriage was not with a true Christian. He wouldn't go to church or pray. He lied and cheated on me. My second marriage is to a Christian and I thank God we attend church together. And I can trust him which means a lot to me. My God is truly the God of the second chance.

Katie's comments deserve to be saved and studied properly. They include the proper ingredients for a relationship and are very sincere. Thanks for sharing.

16 years being married and yes it was just fortunate that i married someone who same as me , grew up and raised in christian family. It is really a great "plus" because both of you knows and believes in the sanctity/sacredness of marriage. Maybe temptations comes along the way but if the Lord has been the center of your marriage then you can surely say..i am really an overcomer 'cos greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world..

my husband is not saved. The Lord showed me how to fight the demons that strive to split us up, and He showed me how to recognise an argument (few and far between) between my husband and me, and when satan is causing trouble

I have learned compassion, consideration, selflessness, unconditional love, true servanthood, and compromise in my relationship with my husband. No, we are not perfect, but we are learning together. And we've only just begun! I am so blessed to have met him, and have him in my life. I look forward to the future God has for us.

My wife has taught me the power of prayer, forgiveness and wisdom. People that treat her in a bad way she is always there for them when they need something.
She prayed for my Salvation and run all of my old girlfriends away (lol) (but she really did).
She has taught me what a happy Godly marriage is and I wouldn't change anything about her.

My mate and God have shown me love and stability. She followed all over the world giving me children in Texas, Illinois, Okinawa, and New Jersey. She drove thru rockthrowing crowds to take the children to Vacation Bible School She raised them while I was busy being me. She was there when I awakened from an AAA procedure with my children and her pastor(At this time I had experienced enough church politics to not have a church). She has nursed me back to God and physical health. God made her perfect

Let me say first of all that I am very happy that I get to answer this question and not the other way around.
I can honestly praise the Lord for giving me a wife that daily demonstrates to me what it would be like to be in the presence of Jesus. Is she perfect, no! She does forget imporant things from time to time and occasionally she can even be "direct" but it is true, that what I read about Jesus is very much what I see in her comportment daily!

My spouse likes Bible study and the things of the Lord. He continues to encourage me and everyone to see the goodness of the Lord and to find Bible study enriching. He like order and being clean. He likes the children and is an interest taker in them. He even gets tired and wants to retreat away from everything.
