A marriage made in heaven

Understanding more of our true individuality can uplift and protect the marriage relationship.

"If marriages / Are made in heaven, they should be happier," "The Fatal Marriage." quips the playwright Thomas Southerne. Apparently even when he wrote these lines in 1694, there were evidences of a less than perfect marital state in all too many instances.

That wedded bliss seems elusive today is almost proverbial. Yet there are happy marriages. What's more, it is possible to improve the relationships that are suffering strains and to restore happiness. Any married couple can improve their sense of unity and working together through the teachings of true Christianity. The Bible's message of hope and healing and the truths of God and man explained in Christian Science serve to resolve marital strife.

It is, first of all, essential to understand man's tender, spiritual relationship to God—the oneness we each have with our heavenly Father. When both marriage partners begin to grasp more of their individual relationship to God, or oneness with Him, then they have a spiritual foundation for building harmonious human relationships with each other.
