When you look at our society today, you will observe that the divorce rate is on the increase as many marriages are engulfed in crises and some are on the verge of collapse.
A look at some of the marriages that had collapsed or going for divorce, you will observe that some of these marriages started very well but today these marriages are no more because they may have done what made the crash of their marriage.
In this post, we shall be looking at some basic issues which couples who desire to desire to enjoy sweet and exciting marriages must implement in their marriages.
I wish also to point out that no marriage is beyond salvaging, meaning that no matter the current state of your marriage, you can turn that marriage around, and start to enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage if the two of you will be diligent to implement these basic marriage principles.
First and foremost, couples who desire to enjoy exciting marriage should be committed to obeying Biblical principles: This is a fact, couples must be committed to obeying Biblical principles as can be seen in Ephesians 5:22, 25 and 28.
The above verses say, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her; also Ephesians 5:28 “So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself”.
The other side of that principle can be seen in Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord”; also Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord”.
See also 1st Peter 3:1a “Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands”. Couples who jettison this instruction can never enjoy their marriage to the fullness, that is, they can never enjoy sweet and exciting marriage.
In other words, any marriage in which the man of the house fail to love the wife dearly and unconditionally and the woman in that marriage fails to be submissive to her husband, they can never enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage.
Secondly, couples who desire to enjoy an exciting marriage must be committed to love and cherish each other dearly: That the Bible said that men should love their wives is not to say that women should not love their husbands in marriages.
The level of love couples have for each other determines whether such couples will enjoy sweet and exciting marriage.
This is because the Bible said in 1st Peter 4:8 that “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Whether a couple will enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage is determined by the level of love they have for each other.
Moreover, couples who desire to enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage should be committed to building a strong trust for each other: It is very obvious, once trust is lacking in any marriage, couples will begin to suspect each other.
I have never seen couples that don’t have strong trust for each other that will enjoy sweet and exciting marriage. So, in addition to having a strong love for each other, couples whose desire is to enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage, they must have strong trust for each other
Again, talking about love, submission, and trust, couples can never implement such unless they are committed to each other and their marriages. In other words, couples must be committed to their marriage and each other
In marriages, it takes two to tango, so the two must show real commitment to each other and their marriage. But what is seen in marriages quite often are couples who are partially committed to their marriage yet they expect to enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage.
Next, couples who desire to enjoy sweet and exciting marriage, they should learn to satisfy each other’s $exual need: in other words, couples whose desire is to enjoy sweet and exciting marriages, they must learn to enjoy their $ex life to the fullness.
The problem with most marriages is that in such marriages, most men don’t know how to satisfy their wives on the bed while most women are fond of denying or starving their husbands of $ex. This is a proven fact, couples who enjoy their $ex life to the fullness don’t go for divorce.
If couples will learn to satisfy each other $exually at all times, there is no reason why they will not enjoy sweet and exciting marriage as they will want and be fond of each other.
More importantly, couples who desire to enjoy sweet and exciting marriage, they should learn to avoid Offences: In other words, couples who wish to enjoy sweet and exciting marriage; they must learn to avoid offenses and must never keep malice against each other.
Since couples are two distinct individuals; they may at times mistakenly step on each other’s toe or offend each other. Such an offense must never be allowed to linger, rather the person that wronged should accept and apologize while the person that was wronged should forgive and forget. Never keep a diary of wrongdoings of your spouse if you are to enjoy sweet and exciting marriage.
In another development, couples whose desire is to enjoy a sweet and exciting marriage, they should learn to manage conflicts very well: In marriages, conflicts especially conflicts of interest most a time arise in a course of their day to day relationships. I wish to point out that conflicts are what help couples to adjust adequately to each other.
For that reason, couples who desire to have a sweet and exciting marriage, they must learn to manage their conflicts. Conflicts should never be allowed to degenerate into quarrels. Couples whose marriages are sweet and exciting learned to use the word “I am sorry” to cure conflicts.
Finally, to enjoy sweet and exciting marriages men must avoid any form of domestic violence. While women should avoid opening their mouths to abuse their husbands.
Take it or leave it, I have never seen men who raise their hands to beat their wives and women who raise their voices to abuse their husband that will ever enjoy sweet and exciting marriage.
