Do Not Be Misled

Do not be misled

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.

  1. Good point! A couple can be influenced by their friends just as an individual would. Couples need friendship and support outside of their relationship as part of self care. Just like making time for a date night, couples can make time to socialize as a couple.

  2. I agree that it is important for couples to align themselves with like minded couples. Some people think they have an alliance with their best friends or family members that may not be on the right path in their own relationships, but they need to understand that the only alliance they have is with their spouse.
