Marriage can be defined as the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law. Unity, on the other hand, is the state of being in agreement or in harmony. It, therefore, means that unity is a principal platform for success in marriage.
‘And said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder’.
Amos 3:3 says “Can two walk together, except they be agreed”.
Unity which basically means oneness is therefore none negotiable. Any two people trying to walk together where there is no unity are flogging a dead horse.
God paints the picture of how powerful the force of unity is in the story of the tower of Babel in Genesis chapter 11. A group of people had a great dream and ambition to do what has never been done before on the earth. They wanted to build a tower that will reach up to heaven.
“And the Lord said, Behold the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
This just shows how important and powerful unity is in marriage and in any other area. The realm of unity is the realm of possibilities. IT IS THE REALM WHERE MIRACLES HAPPEN.
I am sure you have heard that popular saying ‘United we stand, divided we fall. Man is a three- in- one being. Man is a spirit, he has a soul (Mind) and he lives in a body. The force of unity in marriage must be put to work in all the three aspects of Man. Spiritually we must belong to the same spiritual kingdom, same faith and beliefs Unity in the Soul (Mind) is by being in agreement with each other in our thoughts, decisions, dreams, ambitions and united in the body by acting and speaking in oneness and of course performing our conjugal rights to one another and not restraining our bodies from one another unnecessarily.
1 Cor 7:3-5.
“Let every married couple begin to speak with one voice, be united in all areas and begin to enjoy signs, wonders and miracles in a new way on a daily basis.”

As husband for over twenty years with proven unity in marriage, I can tell you that with the full understanding of the merits of unity and the demerits of disunity, determination by the couple is the secret to unity in marriage. We resolved at the onset of our marriage that we will remain united and so we have remained despite the various agents and temptations to disunite.
