"Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to join this man and this woman together in holy matrimony…"
We long to hear those words, but marriage is about more than just joining a man and woman together. A Christian marriage is about making a covenant with God and your husband. Which means it’s about joining three people together in holy matrimony. In order for your marriage to succeed, God must be at the center. The strength of your marriage is based on a three strand cord.
"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."-Ecclesiastes 4:12 NIV
While marriage is the goal of most Christian single women, marriage preparation for Christian singles typically includes planning their future wedding rather than their future marriage. However, your wedding will last about an hour, while marriage is designed to last a lifetime.
