Because Marriage Matters (May Recap)

Marriage Matters tips for doing things every day to strengthen your marriage via

Marriage really does matter. Last year I worked with a couple who hated being together so much that they often slept in different locations (not just different beds, different addresses). This year I have the pleasure of working with a couple who adore each other. It is a pleasure to be around them! They are affectionate, compliment each other and even tease each other about funny things that happen. I’ve never heard the wife say anything negative about her husband – and it inspires me to be the same kind of wife.

Marriage is under attack in America. Instead of boycotting and making a stink about things we don’t like, why not use our energy to make our marriages even stronger? It will benefit your relationship and cause you to be a testimony to a watching world!

Each Monday I post a picture on Instagram with a snapshot of something we do because marriage matters. You can read more about why we do this on my first Marriage Matters post. Here are all the posts from May – we had some fun times this month!

I hope you’ll join in the #MondayMarriageMatters challenge – of course you don’t have to post it on Instagram unless you choose to do that, but I love seeing what you share! There are over 100 posts under the #MondayMarriageMatters hashtag – head over there for some great marriage advice!

Take a moment this week and do something special for your marriage – because it matters!

  1. I love your last example of Paul coming to your rescue. His response to you interrupting his day was so sweet, loving and kind. That’s an area I struggle with. It’s hard for me to be those things when my plan/day gets interrupted. Kevin is much better at being flexible and making unexpected things work. He’ll drop what he’s doing to help or change his plans to run an errand for me. Our husbands are inspiring and I’m going to remember this the next time Kevin needs something that interrupts my plans. I always enjoy your marriage matters posts.


  2. It took me some time to learn to just say thanks too! Now, I try to thank my husband as much as possible, and he really appreciates it! And I totally agree about your statement at the beginning: we should be putting our energy into building our marriages rather than always pointing the finger at people who we don’t agree with. Our positive lives can have more of a impact than angry words and boycotting.
