Well the message is for all of us. God bless! The more we see marriage problems all around us, the more we wonder where to look for a marriage work that is working. How about the story of a couple who not only made their marriage work but who also used their unity to assist the early church? Their names were Aquila and Prescilla. Notice the characteristics that made them so helpful to Paul, and which, I believe, reflected the strength of their marriage. They were selfless and brave. In Romans 16:4, Paul said they "risked their own necks" fro him. They were hospitable. A church met in their home (1Cor. 16:19). The were flexible. Twice they had to move once by force from Rome (Acts 18:2) and once by choice to go on a missions trips with Paul (v.18). They worked together. They were tent makers (v.3). They both were committed to Christ and teaching others about Him. They invited Apollos to their home, where they "explained to his the way of God more accurately" (v.26) Aquila and Priscilla were a unit, a team, and inseparable twosome. That may make them an unusual couple, but it's a difference to married should all hope to imitate. A man and wife who serve the Lord will serve each other too. And jointly they will show the world what's right and good and true. Marriage works best when a couple has single purpose. God bless to all!

Hello... My boyfriend and I have plans of getting into marriage but we are still waiting for the right time. We have been into several happy and dull moments specially now that we are wawy from each other. We may not be similar in all our ideas be it career or hobbies but we find time to fix our differences. I just hope and pray that at the right time we will be into a marriage that will last a lifetime.
