I love when you guys share with me your thoughts and advice. A few weeks ago, I asked everyone to leave me their best marriage advice.
Today, I want to share with you what you guys had to say.
Pray TOGETHER…regularly- daily if possible. -Jason
If you’re marrying your best friend, there’s not a whole lot worth fighting about. – Mychele
Never go to bed angry or with unresolved issues. – Sarah
My best marriage tip: Daily live out the biblical prescription for love in action. – J.
When the question (from either spouse) is, “do you wanna?” 😉 let your answer be “yes” unless you physically can’t. You’ll both feel loved and desired by not being turned down and connecting again. – Rachel
I would say read the Bible together each night before bed (as often as you can, anyway). We have so been enjoying doing this since the beginning of the year, and have had great discussions! – Rachel H.
Elephants don’t belong in the room. Having the tough conversation is ultimately better than living with the energy-sapping misery of resentment or understanding. You won’t always agree on everything. That’s normal. Learn to listen to each other’s point of views, put yourself in each other’s shoes. It is OK to agree to disagree. Don’t focus on being the right or the winner, focus on truly hearing each other. That way you both win. -Jamila
Just don’t give up. Marriage isn’t easy, but it IS worth it. We live in a society where it is acceptable to just throw things away. Just don’t. – Sharon
The best thing you can do for your marriage is to invest in it! Take time for it, spend money on it, nurture it and love it. <3 -T
It is my job to be my husband’s cheerleader and not his holy spirit. -S
I love these pieces of advice. If you have something to add to these, be sure to leave your message in the comments!
