Marriage, as God intended it, is a mutual thing. It goes both ways—God never asks more of one than the other, though He asks the maximum of everyone.
In a day when half of all marriages fail, we all need insight that stands the test of time. We need wisdom from Scripture to equip us to transform our own union from a lacklustre contract into an intimate and exciting relationship.
Whether you're recently engaged, just realizing the honeymoon is over, or celebrating your golden anniversary, Insight for Living remains committed to helping couples cultivate honesty, exhibit grace, and experience a joy and intimacy in marriage that they never thought possible.
Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship. Christlike leadership is based on love, grace, and honour.
Submission doesn’t mean wives are doormats, blindly carrying out orders. It means they’re willingly supportive of their husband’s leadership. Dignity, equality, and unity are the essentials of submission.
I can testify to this truthfully: When grace awakens in a husband’s heart, he begins to care for the one God gave him in a new and deeper way. He becomes increasingly aware of his wife’s value, her giftedness, and her significance.
Sharing life is better than going it alone. Life is hard. Having a friend by your side can help you survive even the most troubling challenges.

Timing and tact are always worthwhile. Insensitivity or rashness are never traits that we want to purposely act on; they are counter to the fruit of the Spirit.
Keeping a marriage together is hard work. Making it thrive is even harder. Thankfully, God has filled His Word with principles that breathe life into our unions.
