Looking for Scriptures on Marriage?

Scriptures on marriage and bible verses about marriage are located throughout the Bible. Marriage is a union which is ordained by God. God established the first marriage in the book of Genesis. Adam was alone, and needed a help-mate, therefore he created Eve to be his help-mate and wife. Marriage can be a beautiful thing, but yet challenging. I truly admire couples who have hung in there and are now married for 10, 15, 20, 25, 45, 50 years or more. If husbands and wives learn how to respect one another, and meet each other's needs, then they are definitely on the right track for a long term marriage. The Lord is not pleased with a husband which is disrespectful towards his wife. Neither is He pleased with a wife who does not appreciate her hardworking husband who is trying so hard to provide for their household. Husbands and wives, be encouraged. The Bible has many scriptures on marriage to encourage you. Just read them and apply them to your life today.

Marriage Scriptures

Here is a Popular Scripture on Marriage:

And be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself;for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband. (Ephesians 5:21-33)

Then the LORD God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him. (Genesis 2:18)

For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all transgressions.(Proverbs 10:12)

Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:10)

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:31-32)

Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart.
(1 Peter 1:22)

In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives,as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. Your adornment must not be merely external braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear. You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered. (1 Peter 3:1-7)
