Mutual Acceptance in Marriage: The Quiet Weapon of Love


Mutual acceptance in marriage is a sign of maturity and a requisite for a long lasting and healthy relationship. Accepting does not primarily mean understanding or agreeing with. Acceptance means “receiving one another” in the deepest sense, as Christ did with us (Romans 15:7). Distorted views of acceptance may hinder this mutual “receiving”. This is why we need to consider what acceptance is and what it is not in the light of Christ´s example.
