12 Months to a Better Marriage: Love and Marriage

Love and Marriage

12 Months to a Better Marriage, Part 3


Love and Marriage. The perfect match. How does the Bible define love? The marriage assignment is to evaluate and define love.  We turn to a classic passage and the main character of the Bible.  Two simple assignments follow.  As a couple tackle the questions individually then set up a time to discuss your findings.  Coming to a corporate definition of love will contribute to your levels of expectation and help you to regulate your behavior.


The Classic passage: 1 Corinthians 13.

Take the passage and come up with the behaviors of love. According to this passage what does love look like and behave like?


The Main Character: Jesus

Read the following passages: Philippians 2:1-10; John 15:12-13; Mark 10:42-45. How does Jesus display love in attitude and action?


Husbands and wives together: discuss your answers. How have you defined love in your marriage? How has that definition matched the Bible’s definition? What needs to change so that your marriage is built on Biblical love modeled by Jesus?
