How to Have a Strong Marriage

Dec 05, 2012 / General     

Think of your marriage as a house, built upon a foundation of words. When we only notice the negative things about our partner – and constantly point those things out – our comments and complaints chip away at that foundation. But when we recognize the good things about our spouse, and speak words of sincere appreciation day by day, we strengthen that foundation. Men need the affirmation and respect of their wives, and women need to feel loved and cherished by their husbands. So build each other up with your words, and you’ll build a sturdy home, filled with joy and peace. Here are 6 ways your words can build a strong foundation in marriage.
