Good marriages don’t just happen. They require commitment and determination. They require giving 100%. Couples need to think of themselves as a team. A football team works together, and even though there are different positions, they have a common goal. That’s the way it should be for a couple…a goal to make their marriage work. And it does take work in the sense of assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the marriage and working on strengthening the weak areas. Couples must take time to do this and not forget the things that brought them together in the first place. Friendship needs to be kept alive. They need to go out on dates, keep fun in their marriage, and remember all the good things about their spouse that attracted them in the first place. Anything worthwhile in our lives requires commitment, and marriage is definitely worth it! And it’s definitely worth praying about and asking God to bless our marriage and help us be the kind of spouses we should be!
