  • INTRODUCTION Marriage is as easy as anything we choose to be a success in. One of our greatest challenge in marriage is in the place of choice-making; we desire to choose, but do not know how. Decision-making in life; marriage inclusive, is a foundational skill every single must develop in other to build a healthy and excellent home.
  • PRINCIPLE1. Prioritize your ‘relationship with God’ than marriage, money, beauty. This could also be termed your love of God. Pro. 19:14. (Abraham & Lot, Peter & fishing).
  • PRINCIPLE2. Understand your own ‘personal style’ of communication with God. This answers the question of assurance and conviction in knowing HIS ‘will’. Exo.6:3, John 10:3-5.

  • PRINCIPLE6. In your choice-making, let God’s ‘will’ be your most priority rather than materialism, tribalism, intellectualism. 1 peter 3:2-4.
  • PRINCIPLE7. Choose your friends/associates/partners. It is your choice and by compulsion. Acts 4:13, Pro.13:20, Pro.12:26.
  • PRINCIPLE8. Learn to make and develop friendship with the opposite sex. Avoid being suspicious and defensive. Pro.14:7.
