Why is it so hard for couples to stay together anymore? People who were married at one point stayed together for many years until death do them part. Today, it seems like once a couple gets married, it becomes short lived. This may be due to the fact that many within this generation have not seen enough examples of Godly couples. Couples are no longer together, especially in single parent homes where mothers are raising their sons and daughters by themselves. Many of the children do not have father figures. Boys in single parent homes may not have a father in the household to teach them how to be a man. When he becomes older and seeks a wife he may need guidance on how to treat her. He will depart from his house not having knowledge of what to do.
“Therefore, a man leaves his father and mother and embraces his wife. They become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
How will couples become more effective in staying together and lasting long, like they had once did?
I have a few suggestions for couples that may desire to want to be in or have a successful relationship. These four subjects that maybe of help are:
Mentorship, Prayer, Dialogue, Love and Respect.
One of the things that I suggest is that a couple look for a married couple that has much experience in the area of marriage to the table and can give you wisdom and understanding about every day life situations. Married couples can assist couples with advice and give them first hand knowledge on what to do in times of crisis and help them navigate through your problems.
