Marriage bliss

Written by Hope CoC.

"Drink water from your own cistern, and running water from your own well. Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets? Let them be only your own, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love." (NKJV) Proverbs 5:15-19

Proverbs 5:15-19 gives advice for happy marriages. The passage begins with “Drink water from your own cistern” and ends with, “always be enraptured with her love.”

The symbolism of the passage represents the happiness that a spouse can bring. The advice is to cherish what you have. If we will appreciate our spouses and the love of our spouses, then we will help bring happiness to the home.

Chances are great that you were not forced into a marriage. If you have difficulties, remember the things that attracted you to begin with. Choose to become enraptured again. Find the things about him or her that are good and lovely. Your mate is the cistern that can hold vast quantities of love for you. Drink from it.
