Codes of Conduct for Marriage

Codes of Conduct for Marriage

 

Marriage Keepers live by the following seven rules of codes of conduct for marriage:

 

Rule I – Dedication:  We will continue to dedicate our marriage to God and our church as the covering for our marriage.  (Matthew 19:6)

Rule II – Deposits:  We will demonstrate our love for one another by making daily deposits into our mate’s love bank, i.e., celebrations of anniversaries and birthdays, love notes, planned date nights, just because I love you gifts, get away vacations, and words of encouragement.  (Hebrews 10:24)

 

Rule III Devotion:  We will have weekly devotions to encourage one another with the word. (Ephesians 5:25-26)

 

Rule IV Decisions:  We will inquire to God before we make major decisions about our faith, family, future, and finances. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

 

Rule V Division:  We will not let unresolved issues divide our marriage.  We will be patient and longsuffering with one another until we resolve our disagreements.  We will stand with one purpose, one vision, and one voice in order to live as one flesh in our marriage. (Matthew 12:25)

 

Rule VI – Deprive:  We will not withhold a good thing from one another such as sex, affection, or communication. (I Corinthians 7:5)

 

Rule VII Divorce:  We will not use the “divorce” word.  What you say over your marriage will manifest in your marriage. (Proverbs 18:21)
