Guard Your Marriage.

There are fewer things that the devil hates more than marriage. It is not only the first institute God created, it was the way he chose to bring dominion on the earth.
Don’t let the enemy take your marriage out.
Do whatever it takes. Spend the money, spend the time. Have deep conversations, deal with issues, seek counsel, give up your privacy.
Whatever it takes.
Marriage is not about you, your happiness, your compatibly, or even love. Marriage is about fulfilling God’s ultimate purpose! This is why we have vows, it’s not just a commitment to your spouse; it’s a commitment to Jesus.
If you are single, be faithful to your future spouse now. Keep yourself pure; work on your struggles and issues. Marriage will not complete you so you will need to bring the best “you” to the altar.

Genesis 2:18–22 (NIV)

18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib  he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
