“So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.”

Acts 18:26

Priscilla and Aquila were lovers and tent makers. Yes they lived together as husband and wife and worked together too. Most likely Aquila taught Priscilla the tent making trade. It is obvious they loved each other’s company because Scripture always has them together.

Not every husband and wife can work together like this. It takes a mature relationship to work closely under the kind of pressure a job sometimes generates. But that is evidently the kind of relationship Aquila and Priscilla had. They were not only mates and lovers; they must have been good friends and companions. They had to be willing to give to each other more than they tried to take. They had to be able to accept suggestions as readily as they offered them. They enjoyed being together and working together. They were inseparable, and they were equals.

These two who lived together, worked together, and suffered exile together, came to know and love Jesus Christ together, and it made their marriage complete. Now they were one in Christ, and His love made a good marriage even better. That may be just the thing your marriage needs. If either one of you has never placed your faith in the sacrifice which Christ made for your sins, your marriage cannot be complete? True oneness can only be found in Christ.

The more we see marriage problems all around us, the more we wonder where to look for a marriage that is working. But these two were good examples of a Godly couple. They both were committed to Christ and teaching others about Him. They invited Apollos to their home, where they “explained to him the way of God more accurately”.

Aquila and Priscilla were a unit, a team and an inseparable twosome that those who are married or looking to marry and praying for a Godly and healthy marriage should hope to imitate.
