Marriage is an institution divinely ordained by God. It is the coming together of a man and a woman to live together under same roof as husband and wife. The man and the woman will come together in marriage until death parts them. Marriage is the only institution on earth where certificate is issue before the commencement of the course of study.

Putting God first – It is always good to acknowledge God in all we do. He is our creator, provider, adviser, protector, etc. God should be the head of every home. As a married couple, we must commit our daily affairs unto God for guidance in other to achieve success in all our ways.

The Word of God - The Word of God is a statement uttered by God for human directives and ordinances. In addition, it acts as God’s commandment during creation times. It is by word of mouth of God that heaven and earth came into existence. The word of God must not be lack in any marriage. The couple must study the word of God on daily basis to strengthen their union.

Prayers – Both the husband and the wife must be able to pray to God for a peaceful home. Prayer is the communication between man and God. It is by this means that we can relate well with God. It is through prayer that we made our petitions known unto God and expect God to answer us duly.

Obedience – It is one of the key points to achieving a successful marriage. Both the man and the woman must be obedient to each other and as well to the Almighty God that instituted marriage. Obedience is an act of obeying an instruction either from husband neither to his wife nor from the wife to her husband. Obedience brings peace of mind and joy in marriage to last forever.

Total submission – The wife must be very submissive to her husband in all ramifications in other to enjoy the dividends of marriage. Submission is total humility from the wife to her husband. The wife must be ready to carry out instruction of her husband to the fullest likewise the husband must take good care of her wife at all times.

Dedication and Trust - Having confidence in one another especially between couple, the wife, and husband must trust each other. A genuine and unconditional love must be in existence between the couple in other to forge ahead and succeed in their marriage. However, when trust is a watchword in any relationship, such relationship lasts forever and the parents will enjoy their labour on their offspring in future.

Endurance – It pays the wife to endure in marriage no matter what she could be passing through presently in her matrimonial home. Endurance is the ability to withstand hardship or stress and become a conqueror at the end. Life itself is full of difficulties, in every situation we find ourselves; we must learn to endure in other to overcome at the end.

Patience – There is a saying that says, “The patient dog eats the fattest bone”. This does not apply to dog alone. The patient wife will also enjoy her marriage.

Perseverance - An ability to hold on to a good behaviour even if the whole world is against you or persecuting you because of your loyalty to your spouse, keep it up for there is a reward for it the near future. It is the duty of both the man and the woman to persevere.

Faithfulness – It is a thing of pride for a woman to stick to her husband and not being wayward. Remember the marriage vow that says until death do us part which you said on your wedding day. Stand by your marriage vow and do not let challenges or ephemeral things of this world make you go astray. Be faithful to your spouse for it pays at the end. It is the duty of both the man and the woman to be faithful in their marriage. Faithfulness is the beginning of wisdom and the fear of God, our creator.

In conclusion, marriage should be a thing of honour between the man and the woman. Both the man and the woman should be hold responsible if their marriage is not working well but the man is more liable if marriages fail. However, I pray that your marriage and mine will forever succeed in Jesus name (Amen).

I think marriage is about loving each other and when that goes perhaps it is better to move on..for God is love and anything else does not work...
