Any marriage, Christian or not, takes work to be successful. A marriage that is a Christian based has several elements that can help in dealing with some rough spots along the way. By implementing these things into the marriage you can make a big difference in the success or failure of of your marriage. Most Christians know that without them they could not call their marriage a success.

The most common element would be the mutual love for the Lord Jesus Christ. If both the husband and the wife in the marriage have a strong love and devotion for God, This will bring them together not only on a physical and emotional level but on a spiritual level as well. They are both assured that the Lord will get them through the rough times and celebrate with them during the good times as well. Together they spend time in prayer, in church and in sharing their devotion with others. This helps them grow stronger as a married couple as well.

Two vital factors in a successful Christian marriage is that of forgiveness and trust. Each person understands that the other is not perfect and will make mistakes. They know that perfection only lies in God, not in man. This allows them to look beyond each other's faults and mistakes and have forgiveness for each other.

Matthew 18:21-22(NIV) 21)Then Peter came to Jesus and asked. "Lord , How many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" 22)Jesus answered, I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times."

Though it may seem to be a difficult task at times, to have forgiveness for each other, each will be given the strength from God to make that possible. They will trust in each other that forgiveness is what the Lord wants them to do and they will become even closer as a married couple.

Finally and most importantly, a successful Christian marriage is one based on pure and faithful love for each other. A successful Christian marriage overflows with pure love for one another. A kind of love that does not judge, does not falter, is simple yet powerful. A kind of love that many people think can only be found in romance novels or in the movies is abounding in a successful Christian marriage.

Many marriages are successful. Many are not. Having your marriage based on a Christian foundation can increase the chances of it being successful and long lasting by leaps and bounds. Again, as we know marriage is not easy but incorporating Christian principles on a regular basis can make those difficult times become much easier.
