Marriage is Companionship .....Did u ever know this???

They got along in their marriage. Never did they have conflict. From all appearances their marriage was normal. Nevertheless, they seldom did anything together. She had her job and he had his. She had her friends and he had his. She liked to shop and spend time with other ladies at luncheons and other social functions. He liked to spend his time off from work with other guys, attending ball games, hunting and fishing. About the only thing they did together was attend church on Sunday mornings. Companionship was not a word which described their marriage.

Points to Consider

God has ordained marriage for companionship. "And the LORD God said, 'It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him" (Genesis 1:18). Married couples should enjoy the companionship of being together.

Certainly, husbands and wives need a social outlet with others. Many times, couples enjoy fellowship together. Men need to have activity with other men through sports and social gatherings. Wives likewise enjoy a social life with other women. Nevertheless, these activities should never take the place of the couple's companionship.

A healthy marriage finds a couple who enjoy being together. They do things together and go places together. When companionship is minimal, even without conflict in the marriage, something is wrong. Marriage is more than sharing a house together. It is companionship.

Companionship provides time for meaningful communication. Love includes spending quality time together. A husband wrote his wife a love letter, after being married more than twenty years. He included these words, "A lifetime is not enough to spend with you, because I love your companionship."
