How To Have A Great Marriage

How to have a great marriage Your marriage does not have to be just good; it can be great! What separates good marriages from great ones?

Give God His place in your marriage. Remember that Solomon said, ‘A threefold cord is not quickly broken’ (Ecclesiastes 4:12). Couples who strive to build a relationship with Christ at its center enjoy an enormous advantage over those who do not (Psalm 127:1).

Remember your vows. Husbands, did you promise to love, honor, cherish, and protect your spouse, forsaking all others? Wives, did you promise to love, honor, cherish, and obey your spouse, forsaking all others? Consider Matthew 19:9 and Hebrews 13:4.

Express love each day. ‘Show … the proof of your love’ (2 Corinthians 8:24).

Appreciate one another. When you stop to count your blessings, do not forget to count your spouse! ‘Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing’ (Proverbs 18:22). An attitude of ingratitude will eventually manifest itself in selfish and disrespectful behavior toward one another.

Treat one another as the most important person in the world. Who on earth is more important to you than your spouse? In terms of your relationships with others, no relationship is as important to maintain and cherish than the one you have with your spouse.      – Rod Halliburton\
