Do You Desire To Be in a Good Marriage?

You can not sit back and hope for a happy marriage

A good marriage takes effort on both the husband and wife together!

What makes a good marriage is the ability to forgive, accept, respect and love your spouse. Having faith and love for God will direct the course of your relationship. Putting your spouse’s needs ahead of your own. 

Bottom line, what makes a good marriage? It would be your love for your spouse should be your greatest love only behind that of Jesus Christ. Other important factors such as I would refer to them as the 3-C’s -Commitment, Communication, Cooperation added to a solid base foundation of Faith / Love / and Honoring God you will be on the right road!

There are a few ways to learn the keys to a good marriage, and I feel that whatever it takes for you to learn them is what matters. On one hand, you may want to talk to couples that have been married for 50 years to find out their secrets to success. On the other hand, you can learn from people who did not have a successful marriage for whatever reason and learn from them.

There is benefit from learning from what did work, and there is also benefit from other people’s mistakes. There are also books you can read to learn more keys to a good marriage. But whatever you do, be proactive and put effort into your marriage or your marriage will not be what you hoped for or would like it to be. ~ Bill Greguska




Some keys to what makes a good marriage?

Forgiveness is critical in every healthy marriage! Learn what makes a good marriage!

  • Love your spouse in the same manner as you would want to be loved.

  • To have a lasting marriage, it is important to get premarital counseling. Couples who get communication training before they get married are more likely to be happily married many years later.

  • It is also imperative to keep in mind that couples who play together, pray together, stay together. Couples that share a hobby or interest have lower divorce rates than those who don’t.

  • Faith, hope, love, trust, and honesty are indispensable in discovering your keys to a good marriage. Without trust and honesty, marriage does not have much to be built on that will last.

  • Individual acts of kindness and sacrificial acts of love sprinkled in the relationship help keep the relationship alive and strong.

  • Learn to be able to laugh with your spouse.

  • Don’t stop here, do some of your homework to find more keys of your own to a good marriage.




How can I have a good marriage?

Many people spend more time in planning the wedding than they do in planning the marriage. ~ Zig Ziglar

Ephesians 5:24-25  Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
