Choose Your Spouse
What is God’s plan for marriage? What should play a role in one’s decision to marry? How does He want me to determine how to choose my spouse? This book provides the answers to these questions and more. His Grace Bishop Youssef uses many Biblical examples and references to illustrate the many factors which should and should not go into choosing whom to marry.
Marriage is one of the Sacraments in the Orthodox Church and it is a decision which affects every aspect of an individual’s life. “How to Choose Your Spouse” will help you learn and understand what God intended the Sacrament of marriage to be as well as provide insight on what to include in your decision of whom you should marry.
“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” (Ephesians 5:31-33)
