I have learned a tremendous amount about marriage since I first said, I Do, in my early twenties to my amazing husband, John.
My first lesson? Marriage isn’t easy, not to mention a good marriage. And in honor of Valentine’s Day coming up on our heels, I’ve compiled my top love lessons I’ve learned that has made my marriage strong, happy, and a good marriage.
#1 There isn’t a concrete right or wrong way to fix problems in a marriage
It’s important to do what works for you and as a couple in any problems that arise in your marriage. But one important factor to consider is if what you’re currently doing, is working. If it’s not, change what you’re doing. I would go at a problem the same way every time in our marriage and got the same sad results. Once I changed my approach ;dramatic results happened.
#2 Run to the Throne before you run to the phone
I used to always ask advice from everyone I knew when having an issue with my marriage. This proved over and over again to not work. I needed to give my marriage and my needs to God.
Having a good marriage is a choice. Choose to be committed, chose to do what it takes, and don’t give up. A good marriage is worth the work.
