What does the Bible say about BEING Married?

These materials were put together during an adult Sunday School class on Marriage at Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church, Lake Stevens, Wa., in the fall of 2000. We surveyed various Bible Passages related to Marriage and discuss a variety of topics related to Married life including: the Marriage Triangle, five ways of loving, knowing one another, differences, Love Talk and communication skills, needs and expectations, stress and change, anger, conflict, encouraging, honoring and serving one another, headship and submission, romance and intimacy, confession and forgiveness, children, and the home as a place of ministry.

Key Biblical Passages: Genesis 1:26-31; 2:18-25; 3:1-24; 4:1. Proverbs 24:3,4; Ephesians 5:22-33; I Cor. 7, 13; Song of Solomon, 1 Peter 3:1-12; Proverbs 5:1-23; Hosea; Hebrews 13:1-3; 4,5-6; 1 Tim 5:1-16; Matt 5:27-32; 19:1-15; Luke 16:18; plus plenty of others!
