Bible Verses for Married Couples

Marriage is a beautiful sacrament and a lasting bond of love. An intimate partnership. And a vocation. But married couples know that, despite all the beautiful language talking about married theoretically, marriage is not always easy and requires a lot of hard work. Married couples, whether newlyweds or those who tied the knots decades ago, can always turn to Scripture to help draw closer to God and place God at the center of their union. Here are some Bible verses for married couples who could use a reminder that God’s love for them.

Let Hallow help you pray when you’re seeking Bible Verses for married couples.

No matter what you’re facing or what you’re feeling, God is not far from you. We draw especially close to God when we spend time reflecting on Scripture.

“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body.”

Genesis 2: 24

“Two are better than one: They get a good wage for their labor. If the one falls, the other will lift up his companion. Woe to the solitary man! For if he should fall, he has no one to lift him up. So also, if two sleep together, they keep each other warm. How can one alone keep warm?”

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12

“He who finds a wife finds happiness; it is a blessing from the LORD.”

Proverbs 18: 22

“Set me as a seal on your heart, as a seal on your arm; For stern as death is love, relentless as the nether world is devotion; its flames are a blazing fire. Deep waters cannot quench love, nor floods sweep it away. Were one to offer all he owns to purchase love, he would be roundly mocked.”

Song of Solomon 8: 6-7

“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
