43 Bible Verses About Marriage and Love

[xyz-ips snippet=”Seth-Godin-Message”]


Military life can often create a lot of stress… and a lot of joy. And oftentimes, those who are in love with a member of the military navigate the relationship, engagement, and marriage alone. For some military spouses, leaning on religious practices like reading holy texts, praying, or attending worship services, can help to alleviate stress and give them strength for the journey ahead.

These verses also can be used creatively during your nuptials as you and your husband, wife, or partner begin your married life together. Consider them for use in your wedding program or bulletin, as a scripture reading during the marriage ceremony, or as part of a speech at the reception.
