love between husband and wife

One thing that God speaks to very strongly in the Bible is the institution of marriage. There are indeed many Bible verses about love and marriage where God gives instructions and advice for both husbands and wives on how to love and support one another. According to Bible verses about love, the institution of marriage is holy and although God abhors divorce, he only allows breakup in a marriage in case of one reason; adultery. Below are some of the verses about love and marriage. All the verses are taken from Revised Standard Version.
1. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 – Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bars all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
2. 1 Peter 3: 1-3 – Likewise you wives, be submissive to your husbands, so that some, though they do not obey the word, may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, when they see your reverent and chaste behavior.
