Marriage (Part 1)

Marriage (Part 1) By Don Krow

Today we’re going to talk about marriage. First of all, I want to give you some statistics: 75 percent of all family units are going to need some kind of marriage counseling. One out of two marriages will end in divorce. In 50 percent of marriages, a mate will be unfaithful within the first five years. Even in the Christian realm, they say that as high as 30 percent of ministers will be involved in an inappropriate relationship with someone in their church. It appears to me that we obviously haven’t understood the principles of the Bible if those statistics are anywhere close. We’re going to look at the subject of marriage and see some of the things God says about it––how you might be able to strengthen your marriage relationship. To read the full lesson text click here.
