Have you ever given a thought about some failed marriages and what may have caused such marriages to fail? As married couples and having a good time in your marriage have you ever given a thought that your own marriage could fail?
I am not praying for your marriages to fail, but I want you to realize that couples in those marriages that have today failed was once enjoying their marriages to the fullest, but something went wrong somewhere along the line and today these marriages are no more.
I am saying this so as to warn you not to take things for granted with your marriage. I want you to realize that any couples can marriage failure irrespective of who he/she is. Please read my other title “top reasons why some marriages may fail”.
Who would have thought that the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana would ever fail? Also, I recently read that one wealthy man Cardwell whose marriage is now a story.
Even the marriage of Heads of States of Nations as it happened to the Russian head of state and wife “Russia’s Putin and wife say their marriage is over”
There are many like that, even some notable and powerful ministers of GOD are having crises in their marriages and some had ended their marriages in divorce like a popular preacher Pastor Chris.
One could ask why some tongue talking believers as well as anointed men of God experiencing marriage failures that are unbelievers experiencing? My answer is that anointing doesn’t give anointed men of God immunity to divorce or marriage failures.
Men of God should realize that it takes more than anointing to make a marriage work or a good marriage. We can observe that there are people we refer to as unbelievers, yet they had built glorious and exciting marriages while some tongue talking believers, even men of God make a shipwreck of their marriages.
What I am trying to bring out here is that it takes more than having money in abundance, being famous or having more anointing to make good marriages or make your marriage work.
Rather, it takes having the relevant working knowledge of marriages principles to build a successful and exciting marriage that stands the test of time. You don’t use anointing, wealth or fame to make a marriage to work.
All I’m saying is that you should not take things in your marriage for granted as not to be off guard with your marriage. Therefore, you need to pay attention to your family, your wife/husband, and your children if any.
Couples should, therefore, take a time to build a strong and healthy marriage, marriages where love rules in harmony. It is such marriages that always stand the test of time.
To this end, couples should ensure that deep love exists between both of them. In other words, they should try to do things for each other, things that build their love for each other. Moreover, they should never allow love for each other to dry up or get sour.
Moreover, couples should remember their marriage vow and keep to it. They should also learn to communicate well with others because many marriages that broke down are caused by poor communication.
As well, couples should not allow any crack in their marriages because marriages that had failed, most of them started with a little crack in their marriages. Couples should quickly resolve any quarrel or misunderstandings that come in between.
That is to say that Couples should learn to repair quickly any crack noticed in their marriages before it expands thereby pulling down the entire marriage structures.
However, if two of you love each other and doing your best to build the marriage yet crack keep widening, then there may be some spiritual connotations to that crisis, spirit husband/wife may be present in either of you.
Please read my other article “you and spirit husband/wife”. The issue of spirit husband/wife some found it difficult to believe yet many crashes in marriages is caused by it.
Apart from spirit husband or wife, often, various covenant demands are responsible for the crash of some marriages. I said this because some of our ancestors were idol worshipers and had made some kind of promises, vows, agreements, and covenants.
When we grew up, we embraced Christianity and did not keep these ancient agreements, vows and covenants that results in these covenant demands that the majority has to contend with these days especially as it affects marriages.
Above all, realize that there is no marriage without misunderstanding, learn to manage the misunderstanding and try not to allow a third party to interfere in your marriage.
Where necessary, learn to seek wise counsel from a marriage counselor. The solution to the crises you are having may come from ordinary marriage counsel. Pay the price now so that you will not pay a greater prize tomorrow. Shalom!
