Marital Problems

“Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.'”
Genesis 2:18

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.”
Genesis 2:24

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua 24:15

“I will give heed to the blameless way. When will You come to me? I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.”
Psalms 101:2

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all transgressions.”
Proverbs 10:12

“Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
Romans 13:10

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”
Ephesians 4:31-32

“And be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.

But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body.

FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.

Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.”
Ephesians 5:21-33

“Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart.”
1 Peter 1:22

“In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. Your adornment must not be merely external — braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.

For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.

You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.”
1 Peter 3:1-7

“To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. For,

THE ONE WHO DESIRES LIFE, TO LOVE AND SEE GOOD DAYS, MUST KEEP HIS TONGUE FROM EVIL AND HIS LIPS FROM SPEAKING DECEIT.

HE MUST TURN AWAY FROM EVIL AND DO GOOD; HE MUST SEEK PEACE AND PURSUE IT.”
1 Peter 3:8-11

    What do you say to a sister who has a bad marriage, and wants to influence me to leave my husband because we have marital problems? I hate to use the words, “Back Off”, but my marriage is different from hers, and even though I’ve tried to delicately say this without offending her, she pursues me with phone calls and emails and chat msgs. all day long trying to convince me to divorce my husband. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME SCRIPTURES SO THAT I CAN USE GOD’S WORD TO HELP ME!!!

      my dear sister in the Lord. Let me first say this, your has to be very careful about what she is leading you into. All marriages are hard at times, believe me I know. ( I will be writing about this very topic tonight.) In saying that, there are only two grounds for Biblical divorce, adultry, and abuse. If neither one of those is then reasoning, then she is leading you out of God’s Will, plan and simple. You have to stand for your faith and know that God will bless you for your obedience. I will send more shortly, my phone is about to die.

      Matthew 10:32-36
      32″Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. 33But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.

      34″Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn
      ” ‘a man against his father,
      a daughter against her mother,
      a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law –
      36a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’
