Wife talk- 10 Keys To Making A Great Marriage:





10 Keys To Making A Great Marriage: 


1. Put God first~ I once read a poem- Marriage Takes Three, so true, we need God to be in our marriages. 

2. Love one another with actions~ Do things to make their lives easier- pack his lunch on the morning he/she is running late etc. 


3. Apologize often~ Even if you feel you are not to blame, apologize, it will make you both feel better 


4. Give generously~ Give of your self, satisfy each other's needs. 


5. Live simply~ Exactly as it says 

6. Forgive quickly~ Don't let fights go on and on, forgive, talk and move on 

7. Always be kind~ Do not air your dirty laundry to your friends or family, it will hurt your spouse to know you told someone, so be kind to him.

8. Don't blame~ There is nothing gained by throwing the blame around, refer to # 3 and #6.

9. Touch each other~ I make it a point to hug him first thing in the morning and last thing I do at night, I love when we touch, makes me feel so close. 

10. Listen more than speak~ Let him/her talk, do not interrupt, let them get it all out then offer some advice if they asked.

  2. #3 has changed my marriage. Even when I'm still mad, I find that if I get it out, both of us change our reactions!

  6. Excellent advice! So true of all the great marriages I've seen in my lifetime. Number 10 is definitely a struggle for me! lol Talking just comes so much easier to me than it does to him.... but that just goes to show how much I need to work on my listening skills. :)

  10. We all need these reminders... today's world is so busy (self imposed mostly) that these simple acts are often forgotten.
