Bible verses for marriage problems
1 Corinthians 13:4-5
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.”
On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
1 Peter 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
The man said, “This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
1 Thessalonians 4:4
that each of you should learn to control your own body[a] in a way that is holy and honorable,
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
1 Peter 5:10
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
