Strengthening Your Marriage

Every time I hear of a married couple divorcing or separating, my heart hurts. It seems marriages are dropping like flies, even in my church.

I stumbled upon this excellent article on how a Christian woman can strengthen her marriage and wanted to share it with you. Even if your marriage is stable (I consider mine to be), there may still be bits of wisdom here for you. In fact, I recognized myself in a few items. For example, I need to guard against complacency.

We live busy lives in an busy world. There are many demands on our time, attention, energy, and resources. Even so, may we never forget to actively nurture our marriages.

  1. Thank you for your lovely blog and I will be looking with interest at the article you mention. I am a British homeschooling mum and would be very honoured if you (and anyone else reading this) would pick a colour for my Social Knitwork Scarf:

  2. It's so hard to see people's marriages fall apart - although I also think divorce can be an important option. My husband and I are about to celebrate 25 years of marriage (my second marriage) and we mostly feel amazed that so much time should have passed since we made that commitment. A lot has changed in our lives and in the world since 1988, but we are blessed to get along so very well and to share the same values. One thing I would add to the list in the article is that it's very important to have a laugh together as often as possible!

  3. Yes, Christine, divorce is an option, especially in cases of possible harm. I would hope that others, however, would at least try to exhaust every other option before divorce, and, in our society, people don't seem to want to make the effort. It's sad.


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
