The Top 10 Things I Have Learned in Marriage.

  1. Pray together to stay together. Pray for and with each other daily. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

  1. Love is decision. Love is not just a feeling. You will wake up one day saying, “What did I do?” You married that person, that’s what you did.
  1. Start thinking in twos. Involve each other in all decision-making efforts.

  1. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Talk, call, text, email.  This also requires the need to listen.  Not to simply hear, but to listen to what the other is saying.  It is better to over-communicate, than to under-communicate.

 

  1. Leave and cleave. Be careful how much friends and family involvement you allow.  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” – Genesis 2:24 (KJV)

 

  1. Handle finances together. Handle finances well. Financial infidelity leads to problems.  Debt can destroy your marriage.

 

  1. Respect each other. Calling each other names, sarcasm and derogatory statements can destroy your spouse.

  1. Forgive each other. You will offend and disappoint each other. Apologize when wrong.  Don’t be stubborn. Saying I’m sorry is a sign of strength not weakness.  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” – Ephesians 4:32
  1. Spend time together. Vacation together. Love is spelled T-I-M-E. Spend quality time with the person you love.  Date your mate.  Keep the fire burning through dates.
  1. Stay faithful.  There will always someone more handsome/beautiful than your spouse.
