WHAT IS A MARRIAGE COVENANT?
A marriage covenant is a mutually, agreed-upon, written agreement between the husband and wife.
Elements of a covenant may include anything spouses have vowed and agreed upon for their marriage. It could include:
- How you will communicate with each other
- Declaration of your love for each other
- And more
EXAMPLE OF A MARRIAGE COVENANT
We promise to communicate at all times. We listen attentively and seek to understand before being understood.
We promise to never take each other for granted and put each other’s needs before our own. We are sensitive to one another, respectful and thoughtful to one another.
We promise to keep our marriage alive and not allow it to become stagnant. We make fun and enjoyment a part of our relationship. We take time to laugh together and to enjoy each other.
With God’s help we decree that we have a marriage made in heaven right here in the earth.
