Top 10 Ingredients for a Successful Marriage

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 10:01 AM
Put God first. Make time with God in His Word and in prayer a priority. He will bless your marriage for it.

Act in love. Remember that love is something that you do, not just a feeling. Feelings change, but you can always choose loving actions.

Maintain respect for each other. Treat your spouse with the respect you would any other person you look up to.

Choose marriage every day. There will be good days and bad day. Don’t ever let quitting be an option.

Pray. Pray for your marriage. Pray for your spouse. Pray for yourself. Prayer is powerful and will help you maintain a proper focus on your marriage and spouse.

Study Scripture. The Bible has the answers to any question or problem you will come across. The more you know it, the easier it will be to find the right answers.

Seek Godly counsel. Godly counsel can be books written by Christian authors or trusted Christian friends or professional counselors. When getting face-to-face counsel, stick to your own gender.

Keep your mouth shut. Harsh words hurt and can’t be taken back. Think before you speak – to your spouse and others. Never vent or speak ill of your spouse to others.

Forgive. Your spouse is human and will let you down. When they do, forgive them. Forgive yourself, also, when you’re human and make mistakes.

Laugh. Have fun with your spouse. Fun and laughter are healing and increase bonds.
