Do you struggle with loving your spouse when conflict arises? Have you ever thought to yourself, I’ve done all I can to show him how I feel so what else can I do? In all honesty, I have. In the past, before God restored my marriage, my biggest struggle was loving my husband how God intended love to be expressed. I loved him my way and when I wanted to, so it was no surprise that within the first year of our marriage, things were already falling apart.

It took some time for me to fully understand what love really was and how God wanted me to love my husband, but with prayer and Bible study, I now know how to love him like God loves us. Today I want to share with you these 10 Bible verses that will help and teach you how to love your spouse just as God wants us to and instructs us to do.

Word of advice: there will still be bumps in the road but these verses will help guide you to the marriage God intended for you.


“Love each other with genuine affection and take delight in honoring each other.” — Romans 12:10

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.” — 1 Peter 4:8

“Do everything in love.” — 1 Corinthians 16:14

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” — Ephesians 4:2

“Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.” — Proverbs 3:3

“Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ had forgiven you.” — Ephesians 4:32
“Therefore what God has joined together, let one separate.” — Mark 10:9

“Wives, submit to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is also the head of the church.” — Ephesians 5:22-23

“For husband's, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave us his life for her, to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God's word.” — Ephesians 5:25-26

And last but not least, the most famous one out there…

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” — 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬7
