Christian marriage based on love and respect
Ephesians 5:33 (ASV)
33Nevertheless do ye also severally love each one his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she fear her husband.
A Christian policeman learns that for his marriage to work, he must love his wife with the love of Christ, and it was this secret that restored and saved his marriage from destruction for his wife who had left; him returned home.
After a very rocky start to their marriage, Hanks and Diana, learn the hard way that in a Christian marriage, the actions of couples must necessarily be based on love towards one another, not anger, fear, jealousy, or judgment or any selfish consideration. It was this truth coupled with God's work on both their hearts, that saved their marriage.
