A friend of mine who worships at my church had similar issues
She has been married for years now with two kids
Unfortunately, over the last few years, her marriage has been going down the drain
There was no love between her and her husband anymore
Her husband couldn’t provide for the family as he continued wasting limited resources on frivolities
She couldn’t bear the pain and frustration of singlehandedly taking care of the children
And gradually, she started being misled by the devil
She started seeing other men just to raise some funds to take care of the family
This even made things worse as the husband got to know and physically abused her
But despite their problems as a family, over the past few months, things have changed appreciably
Through prayers, they have made considerable improvements in their home
If you are struggling with your marriage, God can take away your shame and return your husband or wife to you
I have put together bible verses on marriage restoration to motivate you

4 Important Christian tips for marriage restoration
1. Stay positive with prayer
You cannot believe in God and not pray
In times of trouble, we must seek God’s help for solutions
Every marriage covenant is tested from time to time
And we must be resilient and understand the ways of the devil
If you’ve lost your husband or wife to another man or woman, you must pray for God’s intervention
And when you have prayed, you must have faith in God’s power to rescue your marriage
I have had multiple issues with my wife, and there was a time our marriage was completely broken
While I had lost complete interest in the whole thing, my wife was praying for the restoration of love
She wanted me to love her as I used to
And mysteriously, by the grace of God, we resolved our differences
So, today, you have to pray with an expectation
You have to pray to overcome this huge temptation
God in his infinite mercies will guard your hearts and strengthen you in this trying times
2. Wives, be submissive and faithful
This is one of the major reasons for marriage issues
Don’t get me wrong, men have their problems too
But women are the backbone of every family
They unite the home and keep the family going in hard times
The man is the head of the family
This arrangement is set up by God (and therefore must be obeyed)
So, if you let yourself be submissive to your husband, it is always unlikely there will be any issues
3. Men love your wives
There is no two ways about it
Men must love their wives to make a union work
If you cant provide and care for your wife and family, you are like an infidel (in God’s eyes)
So, you must be focused on your family and responsibilities
Besides caring for the family, infidelity can completely traumatize any union
Why should anyone cheat on his or her partner?
God hates adultery – that is; the sin committed when married people cheat on their wives
We must return to our spouses and beg for forgiveness
There is no reason to feel ashamed
God is willing to set you free of your iniquities and return you to glory
4. Be prepared to forgive and let go
I have been cheated on in the past (before getting married), and I know how it feels
Your world seems to stop, and nothing can make you happy
The thoughts of your husband/wife, whom you love so much, cheating with another person, is so painful
But irrespective of your frustrations, you can forgive and let go
However, if you can’t continue to trust your husband or wife anymore, God allows divorce in cases of infidelity
