A marriage is like a long trip in a tiny rowboat: if one passenger starts to rock the boat, the other has to steady it; otherwise they will go to the bottom together.
–David Robert Reuben
Success in marriage is more than finding the right person: it is being the right person.
These two quotes are true. David Robert Reuben and Robert Browning were not the first people to say something about marriage. Much has been said about marriage. Many books have been written about the subject, yet if we look at the divorce statistics we see something is seriously wrong. I believe one reason for marriages not lasting, is because instead of looking to YHVH’s word for guidance in marriage, people tend to look to pop psychology for help and answers.
Lots of instruction on marriage can be found in scripture. In this article, we will look a bit deeper into what marriage is. There are certain aspects about marriage that make this union unique.
Every person on earth is affected by relationships. We have old friends, good friends estranged friends and some enemies too. Some of us are married and have children. We all have or had parents. We meet people, share a few words and move on, sometimes these few words lead to a meaningful relationship. Our lives are shaped and made full by relationships and most of the hurt we will ever experience will also be due to relationships. Our most meaningful relationship is or should be with our Maker, but often it is not so. The purpose of this study is to look at what we can learn from scripture about relationships.
We will break it down in two articles, this article is about our relationship with YHVH and between a man and woman.
We have written an article about Set Apart Marriage and have been asked for more information about the law of Niddah, hence, this post. What is this law of Niddah, as it is often referred to, and how are we to understand it? Why is it even important?
We shall share the Scriptural truth about these and related commandments with you. This is a sensitive and mature topic, but very important for every married couple to know. Furthermore, young people planning to get married also need to learn this in order to apply it from the beginning of their marriage.
