Biblical Marriage Psychology Reveals What Makes a Marriage Good

Don’t expect to find a typical academic presentation of marriage psychology here. What you will find are stories and articles from people who have struggled in marriage and are here to tell about it. Take courage. Bible-based psychology can answer questions, solve problems and give hope for the future.

First, let’s define terms. “Psyche” is the Greek word for soul or mind and “-ology” is a Greek term that means “study of.” Put them together and we find psychology literally means “study of the soul/mind.”

"Marriage" has been understood throughout the centuries in every culture and every time to be the union of one man and one woman. We will go with the time-honored definition.

Many fine scholars and institutions have used research and academic skills to study marriage. Dr. James Dobson from Focus on the Family is one fine example. I personally use “FOCUS—Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding and Study” in my pre-marital counseling of engaged couples. FOCUS is based in Omaha, Nebraska.
