How Strong Is Your Marriage?


Looking for a partner in life is hard enough, but it doesn’t mean that once you’ve found your mate that that is the end of the journey, that you can now relax and be complacent. A relationship has to be nurtured and taken care of. It is healthy to look into your relationship regularly so that you and your spouse won’t fall into the trap of routine and boredom. It is good to check on your relationship every so often so that you won’t wake up one day and find that you’ve drifted so far apart that you are now married to a stranger.

Here are some questions that can help you assess the strength of your relationship:

  1. Do you still have the tender feelings towards your spouse like that you once had or has your marriage begun to lose some excitement?

  2. When something is bothering you, do you find it easier to share your thoughts with someone other than your spouse?

  3. Is the desire to be with each other still great or would you rather be with friends?

  4. Do you spend time in recreation together as a couple or as a family?

  5. Are you in church regularly with your family or do you find that more of your weekends are spent elsewhere?

If you answered these questions honestly, you’ll more or less get an idea how your marriage is right now; whether it is still smokin’ hot, cool and managed, or if it has begun to grow cold and stale.

There is no shame in admitting that your marriage needs help. Better to work on it now rather than be sorry later.
