The Marriage Ring by John Angell James (buy the 2010 Paperback Book)

Published by Hail & Fire
2010 Edition (Paperback)
Modernized and edited from the 1842 Edition

“As the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” - Ephesians 5:24-25

An exhortation on CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE AND ITS DUTIES.
The secret of happiness lies folded up in the leaves of the Bible and is carried in the heart of true religion. A good Christian cannot be a bad husband or father and, as this is equally true in everything, he who has the most piety will shine the most in all the relationships of life.

A Bible placed between man and wife as the basis of their union, the rule of their conduct, and the model of their spirit will make up for many differences between them, comfort them under many crosses, guide them through many straits, support them in their last sad parting from one another and reunite them in that happy world where they shall remain forever. Let the two parties in wedded life be believers in Christ Jesus and partake themselves of the peace that surpasses understanding. And if happiness is to be found on earth, it will be enjoyed within the hallowed circle of a family thus united by love and sanctified by grace.

Quote on Christian Marriage, Mutual Correction and Reproof:

"Affection does not forbid, but actually demands that we point out one another’s faults. Yet, this should be done in all the meekness of wisdom, united with all the tenderness of love." - John Angell James

Quote on Christian Marriage, Duty of Mutual Forbearance:

"We should all enter the state of marriage remembering that we are about to be united to a fallen creature. In every case, as it is not two angels that have met together, but two sinful children of Adam, from whom much weakness and waywardness must be expected, we must resign ourselves to some imperfection. Remembering that we have no small share of our own faults that call for the forbearance of the other party, we ourselves should exercise the very patience that we ask of them." - John Angell James

Quote on Christian Dating, finding a Spiritual Helpmeet:

"One of the ends which every believer must propose to himself, on entering the state of marriage, is to secure a faithful friend who will be a helpmate to him in reference to the world to come, assist him in the great business of his soul’s salvation, and pray for him and with him. One that will affectionately tell him of his sins and defects, viewed in the light of a Christian. One that will stimulate and draw him by the power of a holy example and the sweet force of persuasive words. One that will warn him in temptation, comfort him in dejection, and in every way assist him in his pilgrimage to heaven." - John Angell James

Quote on Christian Dating, Selecting a Companion:

"It is so commonly remarked as to be proverbial, that the charms of the mind increase by acquaintance, while those of the exterior are diminished by acquaintance. While the charms of the mind easily reconcile us to a plain countenance, the charms of the exterior excite by the power of contrast, a distaste for the insipidness, ignorance, and heartlessness with which they are united—like gaudy scentless flowers growing in a desert. Instead of determining to stake our happiness on the act of gathering these flowering weeds to place them in our bosom, let us ask how they will look in a few years from now or how they will adorn and bless our habitation. Let us ask if the understanding, united with that countenance, render its owner fit to be my companion and the instructor of my children? Will that temper patiently bear with my weaknesses, kindly consult my tastes, and affectionately study my comfort? Will those manners please me in solitude, as well as in society? Will those habits render my dwelling pleasant to me and to my friends? We must carefully consider these matters and hold our passions back so that we may take counsel with our judgment and suffer reason to talk with us in quiet contemplation." - John Angell James

Quote on the Excellent Nature of a Christian Marriage:

"A Bible placed between man and wife as the basis of their union, the rule of their conduct, and the model of their spirit will make up for many differences between them, comfort them under many crosses, guide them through many straits, wherein flesh and blood is confounded and at a loss, support them in their last sad parting from one another and reunite them in that happy world where they shall remain forever." - John Angell James

Quote on the Duties of a Christian Wife:

"Your religion must diffuse its sparkle over your whole character and impress itself most deeply upon your relationship as a wife and a mother. It must be a continually refreshed motivation for all the respect, reverence, devotedness, and meekness that is required of a wife and mother and it must motivate you to carry every conjugal and maternal virtue to the highest degree of perfection." - John Angell James

Quote on What a Wife Is - a Companion and Helpmeet, not a Servant or Slave:

"It was very beautifully observed by an ancient writer that when Adam endeavored to shift the blame of his transgression onto his wife, he did not say, 'the woman you gave to me.' No such thing—she is not counted as his goods, nor his possessions, and she is not reckoned as his servant. But he said, 'the woman you gave to be with me,' that is, to be my partner and the companion of my joys and sorrows." - John Angell James

Quote on the Nature of a Husband's Authority:

"A husband’s authority is such as is compatible with true religion and the claims of God—for no man has a right to enjoin and no woman is bound to obey any demand or direction that is in opposition to the letter or spirit of the Bible. A husband’s authority is such as is consonant with sound reason: its injunctions must all be reasonable." - John Angell James

Quote on Husbands Love Your Wives as Your Own Bodies (Ephesians 5:28-29):

"'If he understands how he treats himself, nothing needs to be added concerning his demeanor towards her; for what mighty care does he take of his body and uses it with a delicate tenderness, and cares for it in all contingencies, and watches to keep it from all evils, and studies to make fair provisions for it, and is very often led by its inclinations and desires, and never contradicts its appetites, except when they are evil, and then also not without some trouble and sorrow!' So let a man love his wife as his own body." - John Angell James
