3 Verses for Young Couples

These are the top 3 verses that I have clung to during our first year of marriage. They have helped me tremendously in times of struggle. I encourage you to memorize them!

1. Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Getting married is scary, especially when you’re 5 years younger than most people getting hitched, and everyone you meet says you’re too young. Be courageous. Keep God at the center of your marriage and stay strong.

2. Ecclesiastes 4:11-12

Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.

Together with the Lord, you and your husband can face any challenge this world throws you. Kyle and I have already endured much more than I ever would have thought I’d endure by the age of 19. Looking back, I’m not sure how I got through it. And then I see how the Lord was present through all of it–and how perfectly he strengthened Kyle and I through the process.

3. Proverbs 17:14

The beginning of strife is like letting out water, So abandon the quarrel before it breaks out.

Arguing only prolongs hurt in any relationship. Be the first to say sorry, and the first to forgive. Don’t go to bed angry, but don’t fight the night away either. Pray about it, get rest, and come back to it tomorrow if you still feel it’s truly important.

What verses do you recommend for newly-married couples?

    I think it’s great you have a blog like this. I also got married at 19, had many people tell me I was too young. Now, almost 5 years later, by the grace of God, my husband and I are still going strong, side-by-side. Before I met my husband, I didn’t know of God, I accepted Him before we had married. My husband (at the time boyfriend) encouraged me to go to church with him where his father was the pastor. I would attend but feel obligated and frustrated. Each day I went, God had begun to place people in my life that encouraged me to seek Him…..I finally did and I was baptized by my father-in-law. Had my husband and I not had such a strong relationship with God, I think our marriage would have crumbled years ago. Now, that I am 24, I have learned a lot, and I live through God’s love. I still have a lot to learn and will keep growing. Thank you for sharing your blog that has many of my same thoughts ; )

    I love this! I’m 18 and my boyfriend is 19 and we have big plans to be married within the next few years. Everyone of course is telling us we’re too young, but I can’t wait! As long as we keep Jesus at the center, it’s going to be great. These verses are perfect!

  3. I love Jeremiah 33:3 , not often quoted but full of excitement and mystery as to what God has planned for you when you go to him!

    “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.”
    I pray much success for you in your blog, your new job and your marriage. It takes courage to put your self out there and share yourself with the world.
