10 Marriage Resolutions

  1. Spend more time together. Make a commitment to spend more time together this year. One of the best things you can do is commit to a weekly date night with your spouse. This may take you sitting down together with your spouse and planning out your schedule.
  2. Brag on your spouse regularly. Any old lame critic can pick out someone’s faults; instead focus on pointing out your spouse’s strengths.
  3. Be more sexual. Touch, flirt, hug and have sex together. Make your marriage sizzle, and as one author put it, “A married couple’s sex-life is a great measuring stick of how their relationship is doing.” A healthy sex-life most often equals a healthy marriage. A wise wife will MAKE the time to do this … the foolish wife will just WISH there was more time for this to happen.
  4. Pray together. Men, this is where you MUST step up and be a man. Take the lead on this and do it. Your wife will love you for it.
  5. Don’t be historical. Fight fair. Don’t bring up past hurts and things you’ve already forgiven your spouse of.
  6. Check in. It’s respectful to check with your spouse and let them know where you are, what you are doing and when you might be home.
  7. Have one meal a day together. Turn off the electronics and just visit with your spouse and your children.
  8. Don’t go to bed angry with one another. Simple enough.
  9. Love Biblically.Here’s where you find the definition of love … Biblically.
  10. Forgive. The key to being successful in real estate is location, location, location. The key to being successful in marriage is forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness. Marriage is made up of two imperfect faulty people. We make mistakes … so learn to forgive.

If it’s alright … I suggest you pick 2-3 that you are NOT already doing and start doing them this year.  Bless your marriage.

    Check, check, check, and check..in no specific order!

    My daughter, her fiance and I were talking about #6 just the other day and how important it is to be accountable for our where-abouts and being courteous to one another in this.

    These are great resolutions and check-ups!

    Here’s my list:

    1. Get Married.

    (Ha! Kidding…)

  3. I Am Husband says:

    Loved these! Thanks, Trey. A good reminder for the new year. You know, I heard once of a couple who allowed each other to make one New Year’s resolution for the other. Scary, but a beautiful way to show your spouse that you care about what they desire for you.

    Love this list. Very nice! Thanks!

  5. Karrie says:

    Why is it my responsibility as a wife to make time for sex? Can’t my husband make time?????

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Karrie … you are right. It’s a common thing for “sexual fulfillment” to be a man’s need and generally it’s the wife who isn’t as interested. That being said .. that is not always the case. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. Stephanie says:

    Greatness!!!
