It is so important for married couples to surround themselves with other couples who have functional marriages. Isaac Kubvoruno stated that marriage is like a plant; if you surround it with weeds it will eventually get chocked, wither and die. Therefore plant your marriage among other well-maintained, well nurtured and functional marriages. Marriage flourishes in a community of other strong marriages. Pray that your spouse will choose to surround himself/self with marriage-minded people; people who will encourage him/her to be a better spouse; people who will build and not destroy your marriage. “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33.
