Before You Get Married - 4 Tips
Heaven Ministries - Marriage preparation and Godly Courtship
prepares a Christian woman for marriage is not so much knowing how to
cook, or how to sew, or how to keep a the house clean and sparkling, but
in knowing God's purpose for her and her future husband in the marriage.
Accepting Her God-given Role to Submit
Christian women have been raised without the proper principles for
marriage laid upon their heart. She has been given the seed but planted
the seed in the wrong soil. The plant is growing for herself but this
leaves her marriage without the loving tender care that it needs. Why do
you think many husbands and wives head-butt one another all the time?
It's because they are not applying their God-given roles for marriage.
The seed was planted in the wrong soil.
Godly Husbands Are Not Being Controlling They Are Being Protective
of a godly husband: When a godly man tells his wife not to wear certain
clothing, or to not hang around certain friends, or to not go out alone
at night, he is not controlling her or trying to keep her from enjoying
herself, he is protecting her from harm and ungodly outside influences
that could affect her emotionally and spiritually. This is his job! And
when she rebels against her husbands protection for her, essentially she
is not allowing him to love her in the way God has purposed him to love
Knowing Her Purpose as Helpmeet
don't realize it, ladies but when we seek to have our own careers, our

and then they carry this attitude into the marriage with them.

cannot be helping their husbands or families very much.
Search For Inner Godly Character In a Husband
you know that some men don't really know what their God-given role is in
marriage? That means they will not know how to take the lead and manage
their households under God's design. Sadly, this is the way of most
marriages today, even Christian households. Don't let this happen to
you. Be prepared for marriage with the man you are going to marry
someday. If he does not know BEFORE marriage what his position in the
marriage should be then he needs to study the bible and understand what
his purpose for marriage should be according to God.
both of you need to discuss together what your God-given role should be
in the marriage and agree on God's design for the marriage. Marriage is
a one-flesh that works in harmony when both husband and wife accept
their God-given roles and apply them on a consistent basis. God's
marriage is teamwork, cooperation, respect and consideration of each
other through the give and take process. That means there is no room for
