What if you could have a Marriage that Lasts a Lifetime?


9/29/23 - 10/1/23

You Can Have a Marriage that Last

Marriages in Today's Society 

In a world full of “Couple’s Goals” that don’t seem to Measure Up and a 40 to 50% divorce rate, it seems impossible to have a marriage that lasts a lifetime. "To Death Do Us Part," seems to be trivial words with little meaning instead of a lasting commitment we are making to one another. We are wondering if people are even capable of being with one person for a lifetime. How do couples achieve this? Is this just a fairytale? Are couples even happy for that long?  The answer is Happy Marriages that Last a Lifetime still exist, and You Can Have One!


God's Design for Marriage

You can have a Marriage that Last! Get rid of the couple’s goals and throw out all the lies society tells us about happy lifetime marriages being non-existent. You can have a Marriage that is Full of Love, Laughter, Joy, Peace, Unity, and Serenity. You can have a Marriage that Stands the Test of Time. You can have a Marriage that Will Withstand all the Hardships that Life Brings. You can have a Marriage that Endures in Good Times and Bad Times, in Sick Times and Healthy Times, and in Rich Times and Poor Times. You Can Have a Marriage that Last.  Build your Marriage on a Solid Foundation so that when the rain falls, and the flood comes, and the winds blow and beat on your marriage, it will not fall because your marriage has been built on God Himself.
