Introduction

Re coursework Christian beliefs are to be applied to everyday life. The teaching affects couples and guides them to a content marriage. Every couple should strive to live up to their vows to successfully live-out their vocation. Its a full time vocation and for the marriage to work, there needs to be constant effort and work.
