Law 1: The Law of : Your marriage relationship is to be prioritized above everyone and everything else except for your relationship with God.

Genesis 2:23-24

And Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Law 2: The Law of : Marriage only works when we work at it by serving each other, according to God’s design.

The path back to a good marriage:

But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Therefore, remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the deeds you did at first…

  •  what you did to work at your relationship and to protect it early on.
  •  by acknowledging the truth, admitting you were wrong and adjusting your direction. 
  •  your love by doing what you did to fall in love in the first place.
