Married without Children

This could be a period of waiting if you are already hoping and planning for children, or a time to consider how children factor into God’s design for your family. Regardless, it is a precious opportunity for you and your spouse to define and strengthen your marriage.

While your marital status as “one” becomes solidified with time, you may still find yourself grappling to balance your individual and couple pursuits. Godly friendships and a mentoring relationship with a more matured married couple will help provide perspective and wisdom. A book or workshop on work-life balance may also give much needed insight and equipping.

Participation in men’s and women’s ministries/groups respectively will help ensure you retain your identity in Christ instead of becoming consumed only with each other, while becoming the selfless spouse who contributes towards God’s idea of unity in diversity.
