Signs Of An Unhealthy Marriage

Just like a person can be diseased and wouldn’t show for a while, it is possible for a marriage to be unhealthy without immediate expression of the underlying problems. But there would be tell-tale signs. There are many of them, but we will take a look at a few of them this morning.
 
1. When there is no relationship with God
 
A marriage in which the couple has no relationship with God is sure to crack with time. You cannot build a home successfully without God. 


 
Psa 127:1 (KJV)  
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
 
It is only God that can turn a house into a home.
 
Don’t just have a relationship with God, build it, nurture it.
 
2. When the couple is not accountable
 
An unaccountable couple is sitting on a keg of powder, waiting to explode any minute.
 
Life is all about wisdom, and every error and failure experienced is an expression of foolishness lurking within.
 
Accountability helps you to learn from older couples and those who have been where you are trying too be.
 
3. When the wife becomes the head of the house


 
A marriage in which the wife calls the shot is one that is trying to come against God’s order.
 
A marriage in which the wife insists ion her own way of doing things all the time, disregard the leadership of her husband, manipulates him into doing her bidding will not last.
 
Eph 5:23 (KJV)  
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
 
It is simply not God’s order. Most of the time, husbands who allow such to pass and seems docile are involved in one compromise or the other.
 
Sometimes, it is just the husband’s way of maintaining peace at home, but eventually, storms are gathering because God’s order is being violated.
 
Sooner or later, you’ll discover that you cannot be wiser than God.
 
4. When the husband abdicates responsibility
 
A marriage in which the husband refuses to play his role by just being irresponsible will be riddled with issues.
 
The role of the father cannot be over emphasized.
 
Our regeneration need men that would stand up to what God has called them to do!
 
The husband is to provide leadership!
 
Eph 5:23 (MSG)  
The husband provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to his church, not by domineering but by cherishing.
 
5. When either of them become unfaithful 


 
Dear couple, do not allow yourself to be trapped in adultery. Understand that adultery is not when you jump into bed, it begins when your MIND starts playing games.
 
Jesus said if you imagine it, you are already in it!
 
Mat 5:28 (KJV)  
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
 
The Message Translation says:
Mat 5:28 (MSG)  But don't think you've preserved your virtue simply by staying out of bed. Your heart can be corrupted by lust even quicker than your body. Those leering looks you think nobody notices—they also corrupt.
 
It begins in the emotions, it begins with entertaining selfish thoughts, mostly when you are trying to get back at your spouse or when you feel you are neglected.
 
Know that the whole thing is a trap of the devil!


 
Anytime you try to get back or fix your spouse, you are getting back at yourself!
 
I pray for our marriages and homes, may God help you in the area where you need help in Jesus name. 

God will honor you eternally. Be blessed.
