Marriage: Reclaiming It As God has Determined

Continuing my series on taking back June from the Homosexual  Agenda (aka Gay Pride Month), as the traditional month for real marriage....

John MacArthur answers the question:

What can my spouse and I do to build a strong marriage?

You should both recognize that your marriage is first of all a commitment to Jesus Christ and then to each other. Your best defense against forces that will erode your marriage is for you both to maintain a deep, profound, and shared relationship with Jesus Christ and a commitment to obey God's Word. Your faithful, obedient walk with the Lord will keep you from stumbling.
Here are a few practical principles to follow:
Concentrate on your heart, not your appearance.
Concentrate on who your spouse really is, not on an ideal partner.
Concentrate on loving your spouse, not on your compatibility.

 (Go here for the full article that shares specifics along with Scripture).
