3 Things That Will Strengthen Your Marriage

A relationship is like a fine automobile—it can run very smoothly if given the right conditions. It can function effectively forever. If mistreated and not kept tuned, however, your marriage is sure to fail. Fortunately, we have some control over how “tuned” we keep our marriage. We have great ability to remain alert to the conditions of our marriage and to check in with our mate to ensure they are satisfied, as well with how the marriage is functioning. While there are many necessary ingredients for a loving marriage (see I Corinthians 13; Galatians 5: 22-23), there are three necessities I’d like to focus on today: compassion, consideration and collaboration. Certainly, you could argue that if you are loving as defined by I Corinthians 13 or exhibit the fruits of the Spirit you will show compassion, consideration and collaboration and your marriage will likely thrive. Let’s examine each of these a bit more closely and then we’ll explore how you might try these out in your daily life.

Sexual Intimacy Begins with the Heart

For many women—and men—sexual connection is dependent upon emotional connection. Intimacy—"into me see" is based on spending quality time together. Sexuality often begins with a heart connection. Feeling appreciated, understood, admired, and attended to is critical to feeling sexually intimate.

Dealing With the Stress of the Holidays

Let’s agree not to dread this holiday season. Let’s not let others “hook” us into acting in ways we don’t want to act, doing things we don’t want to do, and having feelings we’d prefer not to have. While we can’t have a perfect world, and must keep our expectations in perspective, we don’t have to be victims either.
