Lesson 1: Marriage: Good, Better, and Best--God designed marriage between men and women to reflect the kind of relationships He has with His people, based on love, faithfulness, and mutual submission. (Genesis 2:18-25; Exodus 24:3-8; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ephesians 5:21-25).
Lesson 2: On Your Mark, Get Set Wait--Because marriage is such an important commitment, it is vital to prepare for marriage and discover resources for help and advice. (Proverbs 22:17-18; Luke 14:28-30; Hebrews 13:4)
Lesson 3: Marriage in the Real World--We can best prepare for the normal problems and stresses of marriage by being committed to following God's will for interpersonal unity and by developing skills for unity. (Romans 15:5-6; Ephesians 4:1-3)
Lesson 4: To Marry or Not to Marry--Whether you live your life single or married, God has called you to build significant relationships that reflect His love. (1 Corinthians7:1-2, 26-34; 1 Peter 1:22; 3:8-12; 1 John 4:12)
