Ecclesiastes 4:12…And a 3 fold cord is not quickly broken.

Man was created first in the garden of Eden. Before he was given the gift of a bride God trained him as a son. There were 4 things that God taught him.

#2 Adam had a place to live. It is important to have your own place to live when you get married. It establishes the principle that the man is to leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife (Genesis 2:24). It may be an apartment. If you can it’s good to buy a house, maybe a small starter home. But the most important thing is you have a place to live that is yours so you can establish your own identity as a family.


In a Jewish wedding the bride comes in and circles the groom 8 times. This is significant of the 7 days of creation, 8 being the number of a new beginning. When she does this she is declaring, “we are beginning a brand new world together with each other.” The action is this: Dream a little bit together. Are you in an apartment? Living with your parents right now? What can you envision your first house looking like? Would you like to have a bigger house someday? What would you both like in the new house? What do you need to do to plan and make it happen? Dreaming gives you vision and goals together. It’s important in your marriage to never stop dreaming.
