Marriage Fundamentals

Marriage Fundamentals

Continuing with a marriage emphasis this month, we consider marriage fundamentals. As with most things, the fundamentals really matter. Doctor Dewey Wilson writing for strong marriages dot com offers these ideas shared by veteran spouses: Separate emotionally from family and friends; in other words, leave and cleave. Learn effective communication and conflict resolution skills. Create and maintain a safe environment for each other. Provide nurture, support, and comfort for each other. Never stop learning and serving, and laugh and have fun.

In my coaching days, no matter the level or the sport, I harped on fundamentals because they ultimately determine success or failure. Husbands and wives who want a strong, enduring marriage work hard on the fundamentals. That said, I would definitely add prayer to this list. Prayer binds hearts in a unique way as a couple seeks a God-honoring marriage.
