The PARTNERSHIP Goal:
Marriage is about WE, not ME.
This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Genesis 2:24 (NLT)
Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife for just any reason?” “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.’ And he said, ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”
Matthew 19:3–6 (NLT)
THREE APPROACHES TO MARRIAGE.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
