Marriage Moment Monday-Covenant

When you said, "I do!" you entered into a covenant relationship not only with your spouse, but also God. As a noun, covenant means,

an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified. (

A covenant of marriage (a verb with an object) means, 

to promise by covenant; pledge. (

You promise to love each other for better or for worse. You promise to love each other for richer or for poorer. You promise to love each other in sickness and in health. You made a promise and promises are not to be broken. 

If you say to each other that divorce is not an option, you will work harder at fixing whatever problems you may have.

You also need to remember that the covenant you entered also involves a third person-God. If you are having problems, go to Him and His Word. There is much wisdom in how to have not only a good marriage, but an abundant marriage within the pages of the Bible.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-6
When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
Never forget that covenant. Never make divorce an option. Work as hard as you can to make your marriage better. Follow God's commands for life and marriage and He will bless your union.
