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. Having a strong and happy marriage doesn’t just happen – it takes work! If you need some help or encouragement to get started in the right direction, I love this post from Cord of 6 with practical tips to keep your marriage strong.
Here’s a recap of my #MondayMarriageMatters posts from June!
This weekend we honored my parents and celebrated their 35th anniversary. I don't know another couple who enjoys being together any more than they do. They are kind, thoughtful and so romantic! I'm very thankful for their example. Is there a couple who has modeled a godly marriage for you? Take time to thank them today – or tag them in the comments! #mondaymarriagematters #marriage #dd35thanniversary @dalecunningham59 @denisec_refreshher
Proximity: this is an important part of our relationship. We don't share a lot of interests, but we do love being together! Many evenings are spent on the couch, each watching or doing something different, but always in close enough proximity to hold hands or lean on the other.

For over a year we have prayed together before going to sleep each night. I pray on MWF and he prays the other nights. It has been such a blessing to our marriage as we pray for each other, for our loved ones and for difficult situations. When we pray, we are inviting God into our marriage and that is a good thing! #mondaymarriagematters #marriage #prayer
