11 Secrets to A Successful Marriage

Secrets to A Successful Marriage!

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?

Yes, absolutely!

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.

31 SECRETS TO A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE

SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGES RESPECT DIFFERENCES OF OPINION BUT ALLOW DISAGREEMENT.

Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.” II Corinthians 13:11

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:15

Successful Marriages

Marriage does not take away your individuality. Two people with opposing views and at the same time points of similarity married each other. It is therefore important to recognise that your difference in opinion will not leave in one day. It might even be healthy for your relationship that you have such differences of opinion. If both people in a marriage always agree on all matters, one of them is in complete compromise.

Value what your spouse has to say and do not shut him or her down because they differ in opinion to you. You were attracted to each other by your points of difference. It may not occur to you immediately that two things pull us to those with whom we share our life – whatever makes us similar and whatever makes us different.

Our points of differences cause attraction, irritation, frustration and then later unity. That point of difference may then become that upon which we build, understand each other and build a marriage that brings glory to God. Therefore, in spite of your points of differences, it is good to talk. If you are unable to talk about your present problems, you will soon have permanent ones.
