How to Strive to Have a Godly Marriage - Oneness

Oneness
When we got married God no longer saw us as two people, but one; the union of marrige goes so much deeper than taking on your husbands last name, it is spiritual, marriage was ordained by God.
After God created Adam He said it was not good that the man should strive alone, thus He created woman, from man, to be mans helpmeet. But God knew we could not live a life-long relationship together without union and oneness. He created the perfect union and relationship when He created the marriage covenant.
Marriage oneness brings blessings -
*blessings of companionship - Malachi 2:14 "Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant"
*blessings of encouragement - you should be your spouses number one encourager with daily praises
*blessings of intimacy
*blessings of protection - you should warn your spouse/each other of problems with the kids, or in the house, or sin, jobs, ect. And heed each others warnings
*blessings of caring for each other
*blessings of loving one another
*blessings of communication
*blessings of answered prayer
