Commitment is key to a great marriage. Most of us in our vows made a promise to “keep ourselves to our spouse until death parts us.” However, in my observation, many couples struggle to follow through. Do you want a great marriage? Do you intend to stay together. Here are four – count them – only Four Steps for Maintaining Commitment in Your Marriage*:
- Make and take very specific steps toward the goals and dreams you have together.
- NEVER take your spouse for granted nor neglect your relationship.
- Daily recommit yourself to your spouse.
- Pray to God asking Him to help you in your commitment and pray for your spouse as well.
There you have it. Now put it into practice.
BTW: Substitute Christ for your spouse and you have a four good points on how to be committed as a Christian.
