To have a marriage after God is to put God first in your relationship. You and your spouse should be focusing on not only your individual relationships with God but also on placing him as the key component of your marriage. As a couple, you should strive to fulfill God's purpose for your marriage.

For us a marriage after God is a marriage that truly reflects the relationship between God and his church. As husbands we are to love and protect our wives as God love and protects the church. As wives we are to respect and love our husbands as we respect and love God.

I believe that a marriage after God holds Christ and his Word at the center of the marriage for teaching, rebuking, and encouraging one another. I believe that the husband and wife in a marriage after God are chasing after God's specific purpose for them as individuals and together as a team.

We‘ve been married for 30 years and have always believed that God blessed our marriage but he wasn’t really a big part of it. After a few years of really difficult times we have learned that God is in our marriage but only when we ask him to be. So we’re running after him hand in hand and building an unbreakable strand of 3 with God in the middle

A Marriage after God means as a couple we are always seeking God’s will for our life. I have recently been buying these books for other marriages and have started a bible study. It was just getting expensive for me and my husband since we didn’t charge other marriages for the books. God has always provided for us. We hope to be able to bless others

Marriage is beautiful, hard and messy. If you’re lucky enough to have children it’s even more of this. Putting God in the center of your marriage takes the focus off yourself and puts it on the other spouse. Matthew 22:37-40 Love God 1st and your neighbor as yourself.

A Marriage After God is a marriage in which the gospel of God's grace is the central motivator. Where the gospel can be seen in how I love and serve my wife and in how she loves and serves me. None of us are perfect and therefore, no earthly marriage is perfect; but a MAG seeks to use those imperfections to bring glory to God in all things.

A marriage after God aligns a husband and wife under God’s structure of authority naturally. It gives 2 individuals the ability to grow together spiritually and create a unbreakable bond that will overflow into the family as a whole. This in turn not only strengthens the family but makes them become a pillar of stability for those around them.

When we marry we (husband and wife) become one with God! So it is the most important thing for a marriage to have God centered as he is the most important part of the marriage to make it work and be complete .

I believe that having God in our lives is very important and even more in a marriage. So many things change and happen in a marriage and we need to know that we can always talk to God. I feel it makes a marriage stronger.

Having a marriage after god means leaning into god when we are more wanting to run away or lean out. It's keeping him at the center even when time and when it happening would make us want to otherwise. It's choosing to learn more about each other and God more then anything else.

Since almost losing it to our sin and then re-establishing our marriage as believers, Geo and I realize now that our first and most important calling is to make sure that our marriage models Christ’s to His bride. We know that God has a purpose for bringing and keeping us together and we want to be used in any way possible to spread that message.
