Tips For a Healthy Marriage That Last Forever

By Gordon David

Do you want a healthy marriage that last forever? Though some people think of marriage as something that can be thrown away, most want to find that one person and be with them them through thick and thin until they are old and ready to leave this earth.

It can be hard to stay married in the world today, because temptations of all types that can destroy a marriage are everywhere. If you want a healthy marriage, make sure you take care of it, just as you would a friendship, so that it can grow and get stronger as time goes on.

Marriage only works if you work on it. You can not just assume that because you are now married, everything in the relationship is fine. A healthy marriage is one that is nurtured each and every day. If you stop paying attention to your spouse, they may go out and find someone who will pay attention to them.

If you care for your children, but do not give much thought to a night out with your spouse once in a while, you are going to find you do not have the healthy marriage that you once had. You have to pay attention or it could all slip away from you.

One of the most important things you can do for a healthy marriage is to make time for each other every single day.

Even if you are away from each other, take time to make a phone call to find out how the other is doing that day. If you are home, find time to cuddle or talk about things, even if it is just for ten minutes before you go to bed.

A healthy marriage is one that is taken seriously. Everyone needs to know they are loved and cared for, so do all you can to let your spouse know that each and every day.

Do you have children? If so, it is even more important to have a healthy marriage. Your children are important, and they take up a lot of your time, but if your marriage falls apart, they are going to be miserable.

The best thing you can do for your children is to find a babysitter once in a while so that you can go out to dinner together without the kids. Take a long weekend a few times a year to spend with just each other and your children are going to be happier. A healthy marriage will benefit them now and for the rest of their lives.

Temptations can rock any marriage, but a healthy marriage is far less likely to fall apart over one. It could be another person, a bad habit or addiction, or something like apathy. When these things try to invade, remember that you took vows for better or worse.

Commitment is easy when you are happy, but much harder when things are rough. That is what commitment is all about. You stick with it and fix it when things go bad, instead of walking away.

A healthy marriage always needs work, but needs extra TLC when temptations try to invade. Remember that you can walk away with a stronger union once all is said and done.
