I'm marrying my best friend in 5 weeks. We're both in our 50's. We both agree that God comes first in our relationship. I pray we are blessed with many happy, and faith filled years together.
I heard this on a Sensus Fidelium video. If you want joy in all aspects of your life, apply the principle of J.O.Y. in it. Jesus, Others, Yourself. 😊
Exactly! It takes three to have a wonderful marriage. I learned that many years ago!
God is my first love but I truly have been blessed to have a loving husband for 54 years. Yikes ! Am I even that old ?
Was always taught ..God first, Spouse second, and then your children. Just celebrated 50 years of marriage...so I agree.
True! By putting GOD first means living a life of prayer, Charity (which means generosity and love of GOD) and humility! A family that prays together stays together!
Always have always will, that is why our marriage is so strong is our faith always in God first.
So beautifully said! Thanks to the Good Lord we married at 19 and we have been happy for the last 47 years...
Be careful with this advice. If you've attempted marriage to a narcissist, it won't matter who you put first.
Very true, my wife and I have been married for 45 years, and God is always first in both our lives!
My late husband always preached put God in the center of your marriage. We did & had a lifelong honeymoon.
God first for sure, however you can’t be on the bottom of the list..Some people take advantage of others reaching out . I know I am happier when I am giving of myself, but I have to learn to say no, otherwise I will keep giving and then feel guilty when I don’t.. just saying!!!
This is so very true. When both partners put the other person 1st, no one ever is 2nd. Love God above all things.
Putting God first made waves with the other members of the family. I like St. Monica continu to pray for them as many other families do. So many are seporated from the Church +
Similar to what I tried to do: God first. Spouse second. Kids Third. Job fourth. Obviously, all parties need to to be capable of marrying at the start. It gets strange if one puts a job ahead of God, spouse, and kids.
I believed in good marriage that it must be a GOD centered marriage. There is no perfect marriage but when both of you husband and wife making God as the center of your relationship i think it will be a like perfect marriage. Helen and me take one another for 38 years now. We had faced sufferings and unbearable pains and trials, the ups and downs of life yet when we found JESUS in our lives things have changed. Today we are now seniors but before we reach that stage we are enjoying our company, loving, respecting and caring one another. We pray earnestly to GOD that by his mercy and love he will add more years in our lives including our family members. God be praised and glorified.
Amen but how can we get our spouse to do this. I put God first then my spouse but he doesn’t put either of us first 😥
After almost 40 years of marriage this saying is so true! You will endure lifelong commitments only if you are united with Jesus Christ.
Ideally that's great advice, depending on the individual you're dealing with. I put her first but the still marriage failed.
In a way it makes sense, but then again,kinda doesn't. If you don't put yourself first in the sense of taking care of yourself, then how can u care for your spouse or family? Your spouse should come second,then God,and children last. All these are blended though, because God is at the head of the marriage.
I agree Scott, but what if putting God first means ending a marriage?
When there is abuse this is a tricky message.
I'm 38 and, given the sorry world I find myself in, am relieved my attempt at a married relationship didn't pan out. Oh, and I'm terrible at verbally communicating. Both our reprehensible society and autism are reasons why I will likely never get hitched. To marriage's credit if two people should get married and it pans out it would be an enormous blessing. But for this simpleton, i.e. me, marriage is only in my dreams.
Yes. . . Then every thing else falls in place.
I agree with putting God first not sure about putting ourselves third though.
You Are Forgiven! Live Like it!
In His abundant mercy, God had compassion on us after we rebelled against Him. He granted His forgiveness to us, but if we do not show mercy unto others, our...
