Five Ways To Keep The Fire Burning In Your Marriage

Five Ways To Keep The Fire Burning In Your Marriage

Every marriage has a fire in it. No matter the level you are.The fire is about the two individuals involved, the husband and the wife.

Once the two individuals know how to keep the sparks alive, there is no external force that can deter them.

There may not be money in your pocket, business is failing, friends are gone, health seems to be deteriorating but once you have each other you can still keep love alive.

Our marriages suppose to be our succour and we are suppose to find solace in each others love and affection.

We are not to prefer any other persons’ presence like our spouse. Our aim is to make sure we work towards becoming friends.

Here are 5 ways to keep the sparks alive.

1. Become best friends
Normally opposite will attract and you are most likely married to someone directly opposite your temperament.

Don’t let his/her different temperament get at you. Sometimes we forget that we are meant to be different. Don’t resist your differences, tolerate and celebrate it.

Becoming best of friends is something you have to work at.

2. Genuinely love your spouse
Love is not just an emotional thing. Love is spiritual.Do everything in your power to love your spouse above everyone else. You have to pray it into your life.

3. Be concerned about your spouse
If we could be more concerned about the wellbeing of our spouse, we would have better marriages.Be concerned about everything that has to do with your spouse.His/her affairs should be your affair.

4. Never neglect your spouse
Neglect or ignoring your spouse could be very painful. The spouse learns to face his/her problems alone. Here, there is no companionship

The relationship is reduced to that of flat or room mate. Learn not to neglect your spouse in any way

5. Celebrate your spouse
Whatever we celebrate appreciates in value especially in our eyes. In the same way, what we don’t celebrate, depreciate in value.

Learn to celebrate your own spouse because they are Gods gift to you.

God bless our homes
