Choosing to love your partner every day means focusing on the gifts they are bringing into your life: their laughter, beauty, sensuality, playfulness, companionship, and so much more.
This action falls in line with respect and attention. Two very important things not only in a marriage but in any relationship.
As stated before, attention is important in a relationship. Your wife or husband needs to feel appreciated and needed. Attention will do that for them.
Surround yourself with friends who will strengthen your marriage.
Your friends influence your marriage more than you realize. The thing you need to be aware of is if they begin to cause problems in your marriage.
Even on terrible days when life throws a rough hand our way, our ability to make each other laugh has carried us through."
Marriage isn't a competition. There's no gold medal for being the better partner. Marriage is a partnership, you become a team. It's no longer you vs. them it's us vs. the world.
It's usually a husband and wife taking turns being strong for each other in the moments when the other feels weak.
It takes more than sex to build a strong marriage, but it's nearly impossible to build a strong marriage without it. We are all human and we all have needs.
Not just your leftovers after you've given your best to everyone else. Again, your husband or wife comes first.
Lies break trust, and trust is the foundation of a strong marriage. If you lie to each other, especially constantly then your marriage is headed for the graveyard. Just don't do it.
