How to Have a Better Marriage?
One of the best places to look to find out how to have a better marriage is from a couple who have already have been married for 30-40 years or more. A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, over and over with the same person.
If you are still single, take the time to really get to know your partner who you are dating, depending on the people involved, it would be wise to date at least 1 year before getting engaged. You need time to really get to know one another. Even 1 year can be a little short.
Agree upon things before you get married to avoid buyers regret. Both of you ought to have the mindset that once you get married, there is no turning back, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in health and in sickness, until death do you part.
Before marriage, both eyes need to be open and both ears need to be open. Once you get married, you need to close one eye, and one ear, because you are saying that you will love and respect one another forever. This is why I say a better marriage starts when you are dating. Yes, while you are married, you still can work on having a better marriage. ~ Bill Greguska

Do not allow the communication in your marriage to break down. Agree that healthy communication is the key to the success of your marriage.
Honesty, respect, love and forgiveness are not negotiable in healthy relationships.
Being able to forgive others is more critical than you might think, as well as being able to ask for forgiveness from others.
Remembering the principle of doing unto others as you would want them to do to you is a key to a good healthy marriage.
If you are married, stay married and work out your problems. Refresh your memory of why you got married in the first place.
Never underestimate the importance of showing love to your spouse and telling them that you love them.
- The reason I believe that so many marriages turn into divorce is that the two people can not or choose not to forgive one another!

Conflict with your spouse is going to happen. And when it does, you can react by attempting to fix your husband or wife, or you can be Spirit-led and respond biblically by loving one another with the love of Christ and looking to Him to fulfill your every need. ~ Pete Briscoe
