Working with couples these days reminds me that the Lord tells us in Ephesians that we are to submit to each other as equals. When we walk in our marriage or our relationship with that significant other and abide by the principles that God has laid out there for us to follow, we will find ourselves experiencing life as a rich man or woman. We can live life more abundantly if we seek to serve each other sacrificially. Love is a choice...not an emotional rush. Check out these resources:
"For Men Only" and "For Women Only" by Feldhan. These books will help you understand the partner you have chosen in your life.
