Marriage matters

Everyone knows that a marriage can deteriorate, but not everyone understands that a marriage can also be rejuvenated.

Let’s talk about marriage.

News flash – marriage takes work.  I’ve had friends who are on their second or third marriage tell me that if they’d worked as hard on their first marriage and they are working on their current marriage they would still be married to their first spouse.  After a couple attempts they realize that a perfect marriage is not about finding a perfect person; it’s more like two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.  

A perfect marriage is not about finding a perfect person; it’s more like two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.

Marriage can be wonderful; it can also be… less than wonderful.

Can every marriage be saved?  No.  Marriage is a voluntary binding agreement between two people and either party may willfully cause its demise.

Should every marriage be saved?  No. There are reasons, such as abuse, where the healthier alternative is a clean break and a fresh start.

However, that being said, the overwhelming majority of marriages can and should be saved, cherished and nurtured.  This is even more important if there are children involved.  Whatever the current state of your marriage, it can become better.  There’s always room for improvement.

Happy, healthy marriages lead to happy, healthy lives

Healthy marriages lead to healthy lives, healthy families, and a healthy community.  Marriage matters.  Everybody knows that a marriage can deteriorate, but not everybody knows that a marriage can also be rejuvenated.  Just because things are not currently fabulous, does not mean that it doesn’t have the potential to become fabulous.

Following the principles and activities in this book can change your marriage, your quality of life, and the lives of those you care about.  In just 30 days you’ll gain a greater understanding and clarity about yourself, your expectations, your spouse and your marriage.  You’ll see noticeable differences in the way you feel.  There will be greater peace, more contentment and more hope.  You will gain magnificent momentum towards creating a joyful and fulfilling relationship.

Don’t you deserve a joyful, mutually fulfilling relationship? Then please download this free book and commit to spending the next 30 days to improve your marriage better because your happiness is worth it.
