Jesus said: “My people, in the reading on married people there is a different culture of attitudes compared to your modern society. At the beginning of creation I made man and woman to be as one flesh with equality between the two. Women have struggled to gain equality in earlier male-dominated years. Husbands and wives need to contribute their talents for the good of the marriage in love and kindness without any self-interest. It is this total gift of yourselves to each other that should be honored with Me as a third partner. By working together and respecting each other’s differences, marriages can last a long time. It is when one spouse makes too many demands in trying to dominate everything that this can endanger the harmony of love in a marriage. Pray for your spouse because you both can be leading each other to your salvation in heaven.”
