The Importance of Time in Marriage

This article is for those married couples that may be struggling with the importance of time together and the importance of caring about time.

In today’s world we have so many things that we can spend out time doing.  Many people fill up their time with things that really don’t matter or in other words things that are irrelevant.  With so many distractions like TV, cell phones, internet, computers, magazines, reality tv and many other things that take up your time.   Alot of times we tend to give too much time to things like TV shows and we don’t realize what it is doing not only to us but to the people we love.

My goal in this article is to wake up the sleeping people out there who don’t realize why their marriage is failing.  The answer is really simple if you think about it “Stop spending your time on things that aren’t beneficial to you or your marriage.”  If you read the bible it specifically tells you that in order to love each other the way you are supposed to you have to spend time and love on each other.  How can you say you love someone when the time you spend is on other things and how can you meet a need for your mate if you aren’t there.

A lot of times men are guilty of taking on way to much stuff at one time but now a days women are just as guilty of this than men.  Men want to do recreational activity’s and hang out with the guys and women want to stay on the phone with friends and watch reality TV shows to see how other people are living their lives.  I believe if we all did things in moderation marriages wouldn’t fail as much as they do.  Remember this too much of anything is bad and “a Sin”.  When you do too much of one thing or a number of different things something will go lacking.

A great scripture for everyone is 1 Corinthians 6:12 which says “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.  The importance of this scripture is realizing that you have the access to do everything but everything isn’t beneficial to you or your home.  Would you let a bunch of wild animals run around in your home?  Would you let a stranger come in your home and take over you house?

If your answer was no the same way you guard your house from things you need to guard your marriage and your family the same way.  Some people want to safe guard their house more than their relationship with their spouse but that is kinda twisted because your spouse helps you to run the house and maintain everything in it so why would you not guard your marriage first?  It is time that we start spending more time with our spouses so we don’t become a statistic. 

Spend time doing things you both enjoy and ensure you’re attitude is in check because a sour attitude will spoil the evening.  Ensure you are praying together and reading the bible and specifically read about marriage.  Realize marriage is a union and not something that can be broken easily.  Lastly ensure you are keep people out of your relationship because when you get married it’s just you and your spouse saying “I DO”
