How to Feel Great About Your Marriage: 5 Simple Steps to Strengthen Your Marriage

Remember?

Ten years ago you married the love of your life. Everything was perfect. You couldn't be happier with the union you two created, and the commitment you both made to one another.


But now, ten short years later, something has happened. It's hard to describe — it's like you've grown apart somehow — but you feel something is off. You try not to think about it because you tell yourself that everything is fine, but that nagging feeling persists: in fact it gets worse every day.


Let's face it — as we all know, marriage is difficult; it takes work to make a marriage last. After all, the odds are rather against us: the marriage rate in America is at a 50-year low , and the number of divorces in America is skyrocketing.

Marriage can be difficult

Everyone wants a strong marriage. But sometimes it can be difficult to keep your marriage strong.



But you can strengthen your marriage

Here are some ways you can strengthen your faith in your marriage, and in yourself:

  1. Don't take your partner for granted. Make sure you acknowledge all the things they do for you, even if it's just putting a load of laundry in the dryer or making dinner for the family.

  2. Be honest about your feelings with each other—it's okay if that means arguing sometimes! Just make sure you're listening to each other and trying to understand where they're coming from before responding.

  3. Do something together every week that's just for fun, like going out to eat or taking a walk around town together (this one is especially important if you have kids). This will help remind both of you why you love each other so much!

  4. Pray together every day—even if it's only in passing while driving somewhere with the kids screaming in the backseat! It'll help keep things grounded when everything else seems crazy outside of your relationship

  5. Remember that God will meet all of your needs. It may not always seem like it, but He really will. Focus on what's in front of you and don't stress too much about the future. Make TODAY a great day by appreciating the needs God has met for your marriage today.
