Learn How to Improve Your Marriage
There are some things involved in comparing a good marriage to one that is struggling. Having a good marriage takes good communication, love, respect, honesty, like-mindedness, being open and transparent, sense of humor, forgiveness, kindness, trust, and a team attitude, just to name a few things. One sure way to improve your marriage is to make your spouse being your best friend!
How to Help Your Spouse?
It’s God’s job to fix broken people. Not your job. And not your husband or wife’s job. So instead of looking at your spouse as a project and yourself as a construction worker meant to fix them, think of each other as experienced consultants. You are intimate because you know your spouse better than anyone else. And you are a consultant because you point your husband or wife in the right direction when asked.
Doesn’t That Take The Pressure Off?
You don’t have to fix anyone. It’s not your job. In fact, you don’t even have the ability to do it if you wanted to, so there’s no point in even trying.
Conflicts with your spouse are going to happen. And when they do, 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

Do You Want to Improve Your Marriage?
Many marriages could use a course in “refreshing.’ Do you refresh your spouse, or are you a burden of complaints, sorrows, and problems? Partners in marriage should continually work at refreshing each other by an encouraging word, an unexpected gift, a change of pace, a surprise call or note, or even a withholding of discussion of some problem until the proper time. Your spouse needs you to be a haven of refreshment because the rest of the world isn’t. Refresh him or her this weekend! ~ Mike Hayden

Keys to a Improve Your Marriage
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 vital to keep in mind that couples that play 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 vital in encouraging marriages. 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 active.
Learn to be able to laugh with your spouse.
- If your spouse is not your best friend right now, your job needs to be to work at making your spouse your best friend ASAP. The bottom line question is, do you want to improve your marriage?
- Never stop dating your spouse and you will discover a relationship you both will enjoy. I do not believe that it is necessarily a lack of love, but rather a lack of friendship that leads to unhappy marriages and even divorce. Keep talking with one another, and keep making new memories every day of your life.
