Healthy Marriages

Ephesians 5:25–27

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

20140530-104833-38913743.jpgHere is a pretty open-ended post.  What are the top five keys – in your humble opinion – that would lead to a healthy marriage?

I will start the ball rolling with my five: not in any special order.

1. Communication – regular communication
2. Learning your partner’s love language
3. Team work/Partnership – developing an us against all odds mindset
4. Learning to disagree without being disagreeable
5. Common Goals

OK – what are some of your ideas? Of course I left out a common faith – duh – so important.

Just something to think about today as you go on your way!
