Marriage is Forever

How you start your marriage makes all the difference.

God created marriage for a reason - to reflect what our relationship with Him looks like. It is the most intimate, character-defining relationship you're able to have on earth. Making your marriage a priority is crucial to having a God-honoring marriage, and that doesn't end with the wedding. While weddings take a lot of time and effort to plan, marriage is a forever committment that takes ongoing work.
