A successful marriage thrives on one's understanding of the Word of God. It is your understanding of the subject of marriage that makes you stand out as a successful married man or woman. Your wealth of understanding determines your level of rest in the home.

Good understanding is a fundamental ingredient for successful family relationship. There is no substitute to having a good understanding of your spouse, as this will enable you appreciate every little thing about him/her.

The reason some couples always have crisis in their relationships is because they don't know each other.

Don't assume that what works for Mr and Mrs A will naturally work in your home. Take time to understand the peculiarities of your spouse in order to relate well.

As a man you need to treat your wife with love and respect if you don't want your prayers hindered. (1 Peter 3:7)

Some spouses are not considerate at all and as such they place uneasy demands on each other. You must be sensitive to the needs and desires of one another.

A major reason for marriage is relationship. We are built for constant fellowship.

Some couples live together but they do not relate, they are not careful to meet the needs of one another. You must relate with your spouse to make your marriage lively. Please be sensitive to each other's needs and desires.

One of the ingredients you need for good understanding in marriage is a right attitude. You also need cooperation. Always cooperate with your spouse in all matters.

As a Christian you must cultivate a good character to be able to win in marriage. You must covet the very nature of Christ and make it your lifestyle. Don't make lying your way of life, let the fear of God always be in you.

Just as the woman is expected to submit to her husband, the husband ought also to respect the views, ideas and suggestions of his wife as it has to do with the relationship in the home. (Ephesians 5:21)
