Advice to Women. Accept your role as a submissive wife. Submission is not demeaning…it is simply the best way to navigate marriage and honors both God and your husband. We are called to submit, in love, to everyone around us, and it is incredibly important to do that as well as we can in our marriages.
Advice to those Courting now with Marriage in Their Future. Identify your red flags. Spend some honest time evaluating the baggage that the two of you are bringing into your marriage. Pre-marital counseling is a must for couples invested in lifelong marriage. It will help you to identify the potential pitfalls. Do not discount the family dynamics of your primary families. Open yourself up to healing from childhood wounds: addiction, divorce, abuse, neglect, abandonment. If you are entering a second marriage or if there are step children involved, work with therapists to help prepare everyone for the new roles you are all going to have. Basically, don’t just go through the motions. Pay attention to emotional reactions and then invest time in finding out why you might have reacted in a certain way.
Advice to Those Headed for the Rocks. Make a choice to move through it. Find God in your mess and call on Him to bring you closer to Him. Then listen with every fiber of your being to what God has to tell you. God wants our marriages to be a way for people to know Christ’s love. Seek out positive and supportive friends who are advocates for healthy marriage. Find couple friends who model how you want your own marriage to be and invite them in to give honest and real advice. Call on marital counselors if you need an objective, and trained professional to mediate the conversation. Read books about marriage, about anger, about love, about changing yourself. You can only each control what you do individually. Make a choice to improve yourself, and I would venture a guess that you’ll see positive changes in your spouse, as well as in your marriage.
