A Must Read - 9 Suggestions On Building Your Marriage

1. Never consider a divorce an option. It is not a solution to your problem. Divorce is not an acceptable alternative because God says it is not. Divorce shows hardness of heart as the scripture says.

2. Do not compare your mate or your marriage to others. There is not another person on earth like you or your spouse. Your mate is also unique. This means that your marriage is unique. Let God make it what He wants it to be. He will make it perfect if you allow Him to. 
Marriage can only be a sweet as how much you work on it.
3. Forgive your mate. You are to forgive as Christ has forgiven you. You are not perfect - so be willing to forgive one another. And do it right away before any bitterness can build up.

4. Stop all destructive criticism. Love does not criticize and find fault. Therefore, if you are critical of your mate, you do not have a heart of love. Stop all criticism. Instead, look at the log in your eye before you remove the plank in your partners. Try a little praise. It works like magic!

5. Start communicating with your mate. Communication is completely broken down in many homes and marriage. Start listening to what your mate is saying as well as to what he or she is not saying. Breakdown the barriers of being vulnerable. Trying asking, 'Honey, what is the biggest fault l have? Then say, 'Would you please help me, by the grace of God, to gain victory over that fault?' Your spouse knows you more than everyone else they are the person to give a proper perspective on your faults. Never take offense when they point out your faults because before God you are in partnership (one). God would sooner judge you as He would your spouse (ask (Ananias and Sapphira in the book of Acts).

6. Refuse any relationship outside your marriage in which affection is sought or given. This substitute could even be a relative, a friend, a neighbour or a work mate. Do not seek to make someone else a substitute for what you are not getting in your marriage. You will never solve your problem doing this.
7. Trust your mate. Trust your spouse, even if he or she is wrong - you are right in trusting. A marriage must be based on trust. It cannot survive without it.

8. Do something every day to please your mate. Something that you know will bring your partner joy and happiness. This is not asking much - to do one thing - but it pays dividend.

9. Thank God every day for the best qualities in your mate. Write them down. Concentrate on them and the positive will soon outshine the negative. 

God bless your union.
