The Ten Commandments of Marriage


1. Do not place others before one another. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. (Genesis 2:24)

2. Let nothing on earth become more important than your marriage. Seek first God’s will in your marriage and the other things will come as He desired. (Matthew 6:33)

3. Speak to one another with kindness and love. Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word kindly spoken. (Proverbs 25:11)

4. Remember to worship together. Oh come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For He is our God. (Psalm 95:6-7)

5. Love and accept one another’s family as your own. Your people shall be my people. (Ruth 1:16)

6. Do not harm one another with words, attitudes, or action. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and evil speaking be put away from you… and be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:31-32)

7. Be faithful to one another. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22) And the two shall become one flesh. (Mark 10:8)

8. Never take joy from one another. Above all things put on love, which holds everything together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:14)

9. Always speak the truth in love. The Lord will show you what is right and true, that you may always speak with integrity. (Psalm 33:4)

10. Do not desire or be envious of what others may have (1 Corinthians 13:4). I have learned that in whatsoever state I may be, to be content. (Philippians 4:11)
