Marriage counselling 101

Gracie and I had our first marriage counseling session with Soon Yong this week. We went through the following:

What is marriage?
– Was created by God.
– We see the first wedding in Genesis 2:21-25.
– Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. (Eph 5:24)
– Husband, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her, (Eph 5:25)

Why do we have marriage?
– For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. (Eph 5:31)
– Neverless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. (1 Cor 7:2)
Not for personal happiness.
