Timothy Witmer – Your Primary Human Relationship

9 Apr

Witmer

Marriage is designed by God to be your primary human relationship. In fact, it is the most important relationship you have in this world…

This doesn’t mean that you no longer respect your parents. It means that when you marry, a new household is established and that this now becomes your priority relationship. It means that the opinion that you value the most is that of your spouse. It means that the counsel that you yield to is that of your spouse. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you no longer seek the counsel of your parents. That would be foolish. It does mean that it is clear to your spouse that her wishes and happiness take priority over that of your parents.
