Underneath your clothes; that’s my territory
The wedding vows are the sacred part of the marriage. Frame them and make those your prayer.

Before you say those vows, ask your fiancée to write them down with you. Frame them, and put them up in your home. Use that as your prayer each night or early in the morning. You have created a bond that can afford you true happiness. A healthy marriage also helps predict successful children and grandchildren. Make sure you tell your partner that “underneath their clothes is and will be your territory” until death do you part. Keep the love-making/submitting alive in your marriage. Submission is the key, but the gift of submission is each of you submits to the other. That requires a lot of faith, and love. If you cannot submit to your partner save yourself a lot of grief and don’t get married. One sided marital submission is a predictor of divorce. -Mary Jo Rapini
*Research supports that people who live their lives with a belief in God and a willingness to submit to his will live happier and longer lives. On a personal note, I would advise a young couple to keep God and their faith alive in their marriage. God Bless your vows.
