Faithful is staying with or supporting a particular person, organization or belief. Synonymous to faithful is loyal. While marriage is the legal relationship between a husband and a wife. Therefore faithfulness in marriage means the ability to stay with a partner in a marriage relationship. Faithfulness is commended in the service of God. (2King 12:15, Matthew 24:5). Likewise we must be faithful to our fellow men. (Deut. 1:17, Prov.11:13, 1Tim 6:2).
The need to be faithful in our marriages cannot be over-emphasized. The wife must be faithful to her husband in all things. (1Tim.3:11). The husband should do likewise.
But due to unfaithfulness being experienced today in marriages, negatives results have been seen. Such negative results are: separation, divorce, unruly behaviours among children, sexual perversion, social unrests, immoralities etc.
We are therefore enjoyed to come out of these unholy behaviours in our marriage relationships. Although the family is the smallest unit in a society, but it is the most vital and the must not to be neglected. If we want our society to be in peace and to be rid off of social vices, the family matter should be taken seriously by all. Once there is a problem or challenge that affects the family, there is a reciprocal effect on the society.
It is therefore, the paramount duty of both husband and wife to make their marriage works. They must be faithful to one another in all things. Nothing should be hidden from each of them. None of them should have secret thoughts, ideas, visions, minds, friends, affairs, etc outside what both of them had known.
The church in present age/dispensation must uphold the family values and teach these in their messages and programs. Marriage seminars, workshops, etc should be organized and held regularly (suggest a quarterly programs) to address things that can destroy the homes. The children & youths are not left out of these. They should be seriously engaged in church activities, because they are the future and the leaders of our tomorrow.
The governments, private organizations, and individuals also have vital roles to play. The family’s ethnics must be uphold and encouraged. Anything that is going to affect the family/home should not be encouraged. Jobs should be created. Social amenities or infrastructures should be repaired and new ones established.
Private organizations and rich individuals should use their wealth to create an atmosphere where peace and unity can thrive.
Disagreement, quarrelling, etc might occur in our marriages, but they are not enough reasons to cause problem in our marriages. Both husband and wife should love, cherish, respect, admire each other. They are not one individual, but they are each half, only when they come together they become one. The truth is that, there is no perfect marriage. Both husband and wife must work towards their marriage. They should avoid third party involvement. No matter who the third party is, he or she should not be allowed. God has created both of them one. (Gen 2:24) and nothing should be allowed to separate them. For what God has joined together, no man put asunder.
We must not allow the affairs and things of this present world affect our marriage. The woman should not be unfaithful to her husband because he has lost his job or because he could not perform his fatherly role to her or to the children. She must not allow herself to be used by bad advisers/counselors, and foolish and useless men to destroy her marriage. They must stand for their family, irrespective of the challenges in the homes. This time, they need to put their whole trust and confidence in God. With this and by this alone can God answer them when they pray to Him.
The husband is not left out of this too. The man should not allow bad friends, relations or those useless girls to derail them from the love they supposed to share only with their wives. They must close their doors to all these set of people.
So many of the women have allowed secret phone calls, text messages to rein their marriages. They make secret phone calls to people who they should not even call at all. How do you think God will answer your family prayers, when you are unfaithful to your husband? We should let the past go and must totally forget about it. Men who are shameless should be deleted from our phone contacts in our handsets or diaries. If your husband is not aware of this secret love affairs, what about God who sees both open and hidden secrets of human beings. Think About this!
And even worst is the use of some social network websites on the internet. Example of this is Facebook. Most marriages have experienced setbacks due to the unfaithful activities of both husbands and wives on these social websites. Both keep online lovers in the name of socializing. They chat everyday on Facebook with this their lovers. Making discussions that should be sacred to both husband and wife alone. Some of them even asked for telephone sex. What a big shame to our so called sisters/brothers and even mothers/fathers. If you are such person desist from this. Delete anyone that wants to lead you astray. How do you think of someone you have not met face-to-face could says he or she loves you? It is not suppose to be. Our body is the temple of the Holy God. And should not be abuse outside marriage.
And finally, “I Beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptance unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect, will of God (Romans 12: 1-2).
Jesus is Lord!
