1) Keep your priorities straight.
Your marriage comes first.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) February 13, 2022
Your needs *and* your spouses' needs come second.
A strong marriage will allow both of your needs to be met far more effectively than if you just focused on each other’s, or your own, needs.#Marriage #TrustAndCommitment
2) Change comes from within.
A woman can't change— Marriage Chronicles (@MarriageChroni1) February 16, 2022
a man because she
loves him, a man
because he loves her.
3) Have their back.
When your spouse makes a mistake:— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) February 17, 2022
Do you have their back, and help fix things?
Or do you rub it in, and make sure they *know* they made a mistake?
4) Learn to *really* listen.
Why don't people listen?— CouplesCommunication (@CommunicateWell) February 14, 2022
Because listening requires openness. Openness requires the ability to expand one's own mind with the potential of changing it
And if we were to change our mind then that means we were wrong
So why don't people listen? Because their ego takes precedence
5) Be courageous.
Don't let shame ruin your marriage— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) February 19, 2022
It leaves you wallowing in your mistakes
It prevents you from saying "I'm sorry"
Repair the mistake
And move forward
6) Just being together is romantic.
Keep the romance alive….— SA Marriage (@samarriage) February 15, 2022
Watch the sunrise or sunset together.
When you fight with your partner, is it ‘every person for themself’ or are you working together to find a solution that benefits both of you?— Dr. Stan Tatkin (@DrStanTatkin) February 15, 2022
8) Work as a team.
Your parents never come before your spouse.— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) February 17, 2022
Inlaw problems are really just marriage problems.
As a couple it is up to you to create appropriate boundaries and stick to them.

9) Sex is good. Frequent good sex is great.
2 Things Parents & Churches Should Be Teaching About Sex— Trey & Lea's Stronger Marriages (@StrongMarriage5) February 19, 2022
1. Sexuality is a shameless & beautiful thing between husband & wife. Enjoy it completely.
2. Married couples should make love often - it’s an act of spiritual warfare, creating oneness & unity between a husband and wife.
10) A great marriage can be a habit.
Turning these into habits can make happiness a daily event:— The Couple Project (@kn8ideas) February 15, 2022
Consistent bedtime together ➜ frequent sex
wake up together ➜ enough sleep
consistent meals ➜ food
Find similar ways to make respect, exercise, work part of your daily habits.
