Twitter Marriage Quotes – Page 4

Twitter Marriage Pixabay social-media-2201285_1920The following are a number of quotes that Marriage Missions sent out and then posted on our Twitter site as marriage tips. These Twitter marriage quotes can also be used in a variety of ways:

• A church, ministry, counseling organization, or an individual can use them to share.

• They can be used as points of discussion in marriage classes, mentoring, counseling, or coaching situations.

• Couples or individuals can use these quotes to discuss or consider the issues raised. It’s important to allow the Holy Spirit, our Wonderful Counselor, to speak further to them.

They make great discussion points for those couples who want to use them for conversation starters for a 22 Minute Date. (The guidelines are posted in the Romantic Idea topic.) Just make sure if you use these quotes in a dating situation you don’t get into heated arguments over them.
