7 Marriage Resolutions

Years ago, before marrying Mark, I visited an older friend who had a great relationship with her husband. Since I hoped to get married myself one day, I asked her advice on how to have a great marriage. I waited expectantly for her to utter what I was sure would be some deep and profound words of wisdom. She smiled at me and said, “Assume the best.” “Assume the best?” I thought. “Why is that such a big deal?”

Little did I know how important that outlook is to a having a strong relationship; because if you don’t assume the best intentions about your husband, you can easily fall into the dangerous habit of seeing the worst. That’s how she explained it to me, and she was right!
