8 Bible verses to save a struggling relationship

“So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate ! ” (Matthew 19:6). This Holy Scripture passage teaches us that God’s will is for peace and unity within our marriages. However, sometimes violent arguments or hurtful actions make it difficult to live happily and at peace in our partnerships. This is why we are lucky that even what is impossible for human beings is possible for God. Trusting God and bringing our troubles to Him allows us to understand the Bible as a guide to couples’ happiness. God’s word teaches that: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:12). We can turn to God with total confidence for advice on how to save your relationship.
