“Marathon Marriages” Teaching #3 in series: I. Introduction “Marriage is not a static state between two unchanging people. Marriage is a psychological and spiritual journey that begins in the ecstasy of attraction, meandering through a rocky stretch of self-discovery, and culminates in the creation of an intimate, joyful, lifelong union.” – Harville Hendrix,

(Deuteronomy 24:5) If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.

III. The Middle Season: “The Crunch Years” A. Unselfishness ) The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and (1 Corinthians 7:3-5 likewise the wife to her husband. (4) The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. (5) Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. B. Commitment (1 Corinthians 7:10-13 ) To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. (11) But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. (12) To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. (13) And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him.

IV. The Final Season: “The Golden Years”

V. Conclusion
