Your marriage is unique to you and your spouse. No one should tell you how to live out your home. You have to figure it out yourself, aligning with God’s word; however you need the ‘YOU’ factor. You are not an island because you are married – you still work, have family, friends and people. You need to have healthy relationships that feed other aspect of your life. You will have to do things with other people. Sometimes they may share their opinion of how marriage should be but the decision is entirely yours. Even in a relationship, refuse to let anyone talk to or about your partner disrespectfully. Refuse to make every issue you have public; draw a boundary on parental/friends’ influence on your relationship. If you do not draw a line in your relationship you will struggle in marriage!
Marriage is for two people (man & woman), however don’t lose yourself. Let’s encourage each other to have healthy relationships…..you are not a recluse; you will end up choking each other. Do not dissociate yourself from everyone, it is not healthy. Let him have a sport or something he loves to do that is not necessarily about you and let her have time out with the girls. But please remember that evil communication corrupts good manners (1 Cor. 15:33). Surround yourself with godly friends.
Don’t shut yourself away from the world, you will have undue expectations from your spouse; he/she is not the answer, Jesus is!!! You can’t live oblivious of other people but you can make your marriage your business only!

The right one will pray, plan, prepare and build with you. The right one will listen to your dreams and dream with you. With the right one you are ‘you’, you don’t have be fake
Marriage is a home; a refuge against the outside storms. And like any house, it requires a strong, lasting foundation. If tended to, it will thrive, but if neglected, it will wither and die.
