9 ¶ Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
In your marriage if you are able to have a united front and work together to have a home centred around God it will be so much harder for Satan to work himself into your lives. I’m not saying that he won’t try but it will be harder for him to get to you if you are working together.
25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?
This is one that I totally can be working on. I am seriously stubborn. My husband is always the first one to talk after we have a disagreement. It was one of my favourite qualities about him. I’ve seen words destroy lives. Working on being Christlike when you speak can only bring you joy in your marriage- and in life.
3rd Nephi 19-21
19 Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name;
20 And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.
21 Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your children may be blessed.
I was just talking to one of my friends about how hard it can be to pray as a family. You get so busy and sometimes it kinda gets left out. When my husband and I pray together there is always something special about it. It is something we can always be working on. ‘A family that prays together stays together’
22 Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shalt cleave unto her and none else.
I think that a happy marriage includes being loyal and committed to one another. It applies to both the husband and wife. Committing to someone/something else more than you commit to your spouse can destroy marriages.
2 Nephi 2:25
25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.
The purpose of our creation was that we might find joy. What better way to show love than to trying and give your spouse joy.
*Disclaimer. I do not consider myself an expert in this field. Everyday I am learning new things about being married. It is quite the adventure. Although, if there is one thing I have learned in my short life, marriages are usually happier when they are centred around Christ.
