Marriage is teamwork. It requires both the partners to put in their individual efforts to make things work. Every man wants a good wife and vice versa. Many a marriage has fallen to the wayside because the couple would not work at what they had.
How many marriages do you know have ended up in divorce?
I’m pretty sure that was not their goal when they said “I Do”. I’m sure they imagined a successful marriage with a happily ever-after.
But marriage is not a fairy tale, marriage is hard, and it requires a lot of work on both parts. Marriage is not for quitters or selfish people.
Yes, marriage is hard, and at the same time it is beautiful and so worth fighting for.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE NOWADAYS?
But like I said before, marriage requires work on both parts. Both of you working together as a team and giving your best all the time.
I don’t want you to get discouraged if your husband is not giving his best to your marriage. Start working on your marriage yourself and start praying and believing God for your husband.
Remember, there is nothing impossible to God, He makes a way where there seems to be no way. He restores hearts, and marriages and families. Don’t give up on your husband and don’t give up on your marriage.
[This is very important, and I need you to pay close attention to this: It is never God’s will for you to stay in an abusive relationship. I know many christian women get confused by this. But God does not want you or your children to stay in an abusive relationship].[Leaving a home where you or your children are being abused is not giving up on your marriage. It does not make you a quitter; it makes you strong. Please seek help if you find yourself in this situation.]
HOW TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE
1. PUT GOD FIRST
When you decide to put God first in your life, there is a change in you that happens as you draw near to God.
The closer you are to God, the more you are being transformed to be more like Jesus. You will talk more like Him, you will think more like Him, and you will act more like Him.
This transformation affects your marriage positively, your marriage is blessed by your change.
When you put God first, you will learn to listen to His voice, and His voice will give you the wisdom, the patience, the love and the commitment that you need to have a successful marriage.
