Marriage Quotes from the Bible

These marriage quotes from the Bible will help you to reflect on the beauty of being married if couples would only work together as partners, rather than against each other.

“Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”  Genesis 2:18(NLT Bible)

“As the Scriptures say, ‘A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’” Ephesian 5:31(NLT Bible)

“The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord.” Proverbs 18:22(NLT Bible)

“As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husband in everything.” Ephesians 5:24 (NLT Bible)

“In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.  29 No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it…”  Ephesians 5:28, 29)(NLT Bible)

Once you enter into a marriage you are no longer one person.  You become a unit.  This involves working together and looking out for the best interests of each other.

The wife is there to support the husband in all that he does and respect him as the leader in the marriage arrangement. This doesn’t mean that the wife cannot give her input.  But the final decision rests with her husband.

Since that is the case, the husband should also have deep respect for his wife.  He should avoid putting his own interests first in the marriage.  When a decision needs to be made, the loving thing to do would be to take his wife’s feeling and thoughts into consideration.

Doing things God’s way in a marriage creates a united balance between both husband and wife.    Following his counsel through the bible will only benefit your marriage, not hurt it.  Read these bible quotes whenever you feel like you are losing focus.

Remember that the key is to have balance if you want your marriage to work.  Without balance one mate will feel taken advantage of.  The wife should take into consideration the feelings and authority of her husband and the husband should take into consideration the feelings and opinions of his wife.  In this way both party’s needs are met.

This will not be easy to do.  Sometimes you may want so badly to have more independence, like when you were single.  However, that is the cost of marriage. 

Try to reflect on these marriage quotes from the bible.  They will help you to keep persevering in your marriage in a unified way. 

Affirmation

I am a loving and considerate individual who looks out for the best interest of my mate.  In marriage, loving my mate is loving myself.

Once the prospective bride and groom is selected by the families and their kundlis matched to make sure that they have a happy married life , the big Indian wedding starts unfurling with its numerous unique culture. Marriage will happen to everyone sooner or later. May be you are busy pubbing and clubbing today but for a happy and secure tomorrow marriage is the only way out. Indian Marriages are not only about the couple, they involve the whole family. The Mehndi night is a festive night in the girl's family where professional Mehndi artists draw intricate designs in henna on the hands of the bride and other female members. During the Sangeet, professional entertainers are brought to regale the guests.

    The individuals not only marry each other but tie an everlasting bond with each other's family. The Shagun is exchanged by the prospective families which consist of numerous gifts to the soon to be the wed couples. The wedding rituals start with the Haldi ceremony that is done to purify and ready the bride and groom for their union. Haldi and oil is poured over their body and hair by the family members after which they are forbidden to leave their house.

    When any one's marriage is settled, an auspicious day is fixed for the wedding. On the appointed day the bridegroom is taken in a grand procession to the bride's house. He is generally clad in white silk with saffron spots on it. He wears a crown of flowers on his head. He is seated on a fine mare and is joined by a large number of men carrying different sorts of articles of pomp and grandeur. He is accompanied by his relatives and friends who are attired in their best clothes. The children wear very gaudy dresses. The procession is generally led by a band. At intervals fire-works are let off.

    When the matrimony procession reaches the bride's house, shouts of welcome in different forms rend the air. The Swaagat is the ritual to welcome the groom and his entourage by the bride's family. The kith and kin of the bride come out to receive the bride-groom and his party and conduct them to a hall richly decorated and illuminated for the occasion. The bride watches the arrival from one window of the house, careful not to gaze upon his face and then comes out to welcome him. The guests and visitors take their seats in the same hall where they are served with tea and sweets. Some who are accustomed to smoke are offered hookas. Afterwards they are led to the dining hall where sweets, pudding, puries and other dainties are lavishly served to them.

    During Vidai, the bride's brother is entrusted with couple's care. The Baraat leaves for the groom’s house are announced with drum beats and is welcomed by the women of the family. The wedding reception is the party thrown by the groom's family to announce the wedding and this usually takes place a day after the wedding.

    Marriage involves all-the families! And the best of all, it Creates Generations! So think guys and hail this medium of happily remaining in a long term relationship.

  4. An ode to the wedding songs in Punjabi Wedding

    Punjab is the state of festiveness. It is said that punjabis can groove to the beats of dhol even if there is no occasion. As such, when there is a shaadi in the house, it given them a reason to sing and dance. In Punjab, there are different genres of songs when it comes to marriage songs. There are categories divided on the basis of moods and situations.Some of the most popular categories include:

    Gharouli de Geet: These are happy songs that are sung when the pitcher is filled for bride/bridegroom's bath on the day of the wedding.

    Sehra: As the Hindu priest ties the sehra (flower veil) on the forehead of the groom while chanting sacred mantras, the close family members sing sehra songs to pep up the environment.

    Suhag: A fairly popular category of wedding songs, the suhag songs are sung by the bride herself as she praises her of her life. Some of these wedding songs also reveal her anticipation of the approaching life in her husband's home. In some households, bride friends and cousins also sing these songs on her behalf.

    Jaggo: Jaggo songs are sung a night prior to the wedding. These songs are sung as a celebrative way to invite the neighbours to the wedding.

    South Indian Melodies

    Laali: These are songs of praise for the bride and the groom who are seated on a swing in a
    ceremonial manner and are rocked back and forth. The back and fro motion of the swing in the ritual signifies the waves in the sea of life while the chains represent the eternal karmic link with god. Their movement on the swing depicts that the couple is together in body and mind that they would together cross the ocean of life.

    Nalangu: During this ritual, the new bride sings and calls her husband to spend time with her. These songs fill the atmosphere with a sense of merriment. The time signifies the breaking of ice between the bride and the groom as there are several other playful activities that take place, subsequently. While family members break papads on the couple's heads toward off evil, the bride anoints husband's body with sandalwood and sings to him. The female relatives poke fun at the couple and the in-laws while singing songs.

    Adding a Zing of Culture

    A part from the pre-wedding ceremonies that are replete with the sounds of traditional wedding tunes and lyrics, these days marriages are also witnessing a sort of rebound that seem incomplete without these rhythms and libretto. Live performances usually have the popular singers belting out hit numbers some originals, some legendary wedding songs that set the mood for the evening and get the guests tapping to these numbers. Traditional wedding songs are those symphonies that have bouts of emotions hidden behind, that bring people together to celebrate and have fun and that which any Indian marriage is not complete without.
