Strengthen Your Marriage

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, September 2, 2015

"Husbands ... be considerate." I Peter 3: 7 NIV
"Wives ...be...worthy of respect." I Timonty 3: 11 NIV

Excuse my lateness in writing this blog, please don't misinterpret my lateness as avoiding the subject. After 33 years of marriage, I understand five fundamental things one must do to strengthen their relationship, marriage.

1) Have a compatible faith perspective. Believe in God who is the essence of love, forgiveness, peace, provision, protection, grace and mercy. A compatible faith permits you to have an anchor and a mediator as you journey in life together.

2) Believe in fidelity. Fidelity is the trust one has in each other that their relationship is based upon honesty and truth.

3) Have a joint management plan for your finances. Two incomes are better than one. Two mispent incomes is no good to none. (excuse the language, I wanted to rhyme to make a point). In your planning make certain you tithe, save, and live within your means. Learn the power of becoming debt free. Learn the power of saving for purchase verses using credit. Learn the power of managing income, interest and increase.

4) Place your extended family in its proper perspective with your nuclear family. You and your mate are one and all others rotate around that unit. Don't allow extended family to interfere or interupt your primary relationship with your mate.

5) Place your friends in their proper perspective. Never allow your relationship with friends supercede your relationship with your nuclear family.

These are the keys: faith, fidelity, finances, family and friends. With these keys you can strengthen any marriage.
