Marriage and Relationships According to Christians
The principles that Christians believe should guide their personal
The first principle that I believe should play a large role in a
Christian’s personal relationship is trust, without trust the couple’s
relationship would crumble. The whole relationship must be based on
The second principle I think is tolerance no matter how many problems
or bad past relationships a person has had the Christian attitude is
to be nice and have patience with the other person.
Understanding is also needed in a relationship so that the two people

sin cast the first stone” after this all who had stones dropped them
and went away because they all knew that they were not without sin.

relationship is respect if you show respect for your spouse then you
shall receive the same respect in return.
These are the principles I feel need to be in Christian relationship
without these principles the couples relationship would not work.

other then it would be a lot harder to trust them in the future
because you would not know if they were telling you the truth.
The second belief that would make a difference in a marriage is
tolerance this is because one of the spouses could have a problem
