How to Build a Godly Relationship Before Marriage

Most people want to truly understand love. In the Bible, God paints a very clear picture that helps us to understand if we really are in love. One of the greatest love stories that we find in the Bible is the Song of Solomon. It is also known as the “Song of Songs.” This is a story that helps us to better understand how to build Godly relationships. This article is full of great tips that will help you to build a Godly relationship before marriage.

1.) Physical Restraint– While we are attracted to our partners, God asks us to practice physical restraint until marriage. If you practice physical restraint in relationship by saving intimate moments for marriage, then you will not only have a healthy relationship with god, but with your partner as well.

2.) Maintain Your Character– Be who you are when you are with your future spouse. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. It is important that both you and your future spouse show your true colors before marriage. This way there will be no surprises once you are married.

3.) Get Opinions From Others– We may not always want to hear what others want to say, but it important that we listen to their opinion. Listen to what the one you love have to say.

4.) Allow the Man to take the Lead– God asks men to lead in a relationship; however that doesn’t mean that a woman should not have an opinion. Make sure that you are both in this together for the right reasons.

5.) Praise Each Other– Find reasons every day to give each other praise. This will help you to build love and security in your relationship. Tell your future spouse the things that you love about him or her and be there for them during happy times as well as tough times.

6.) Become One in Spirit– Make sure that both you and your partner are in the same place spiritually. You should make sure that both you and your spouse believe in Jesus Christ as your savior. A solid Christian foundation is key to building a Godly relationship.

Pre marital counseling is a great way to build a relationship with God and with your future spouse. Ask the pastor at your church for more information about premarital counseling. You could also ask the minister that will be performing your ceremony.

Using premarital counseling is a great way to get to know each other better. You may find out some things about your potential spouse that you don’t like. Now is the time to address these issues. Not after you have already gotten married.
