Making Marriage work

If you want to make your marriage work it's going to take some WORK. Great marriages don't just happen!!

Oh yeah and remember, the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence rather where YOU water it! So get your eyes and your thoughts off someone else and fix them on what you have, your spouse, and make a commitment to build your marriage.

Be honest and answer the following questions and take the time to talk them through with your spouse. Make sure you listen really hard to each other.

1. What is the biggest frustration in our relationship?

Which of these apply to our relationship?

a. Selfishness
b. Laziness
c. Unhappiness
d. Negativity
e. Boredom
f. Hurt
g. Busyness
h. Fear
i. Distance

2. How often do each of these affect our relationship?

3. What do we tend to slip into one of these traps?

4. How do we treat each other when we have slipped into one of these traps?
