The secret of a good marriage is to love and to keep God and each other within the marriage, to live your faith and become persons fully in communion with each other and God. A good marriage is more than a series of events, it is life itself. You don’t measure it by where you have been or what you have done; it is two become one emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, financially, and in every other way. Even as one part of the body cares for the other body parts so each partner in the marriage is to care for the other. Marriage is created in God’s image – the trinity of God and us. In Matthew 19: 4-6, Jesus says as much:
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
