Marriage is a covenant between you, your spouse, and the Creator.
No marriage is perfect. It's two sinners loving each other and forgiving each other.
You don't do alone time or private time in marriage. You and your spouse are one flesh. Hang out together.
If you don't keep adding wood to the fire, it goes out.
Love covers a multitude of sins.
No husband loves his wife like Christ loves the church. He should, but he doesn't.
Have a lot of sex. Then have some more.
Listen to people who've been married for 50 plus years. They gotta know something.
Hold your wife's hand. She likes that.
Don't let yourself go. Nobody's gettin' any younger, but that don't mean we quit combing our hair.
Love keeps no record of wrongs.
Marriage ain't about making yourself happy. It's about being happy, together.
Drink wine together. The good stuff.
Make anniversaries special.
Don't stop kissing.
Tell him/her "I love you" and let 'em know you mean it.
Get over the small stuff. Neither of you have it all together.
Open her car door guys.
Pray together, and for each other.
Go to church.
Forgive. Don't bring up the past.
Laugh together. Cry together. Laugh some more together.
Anybody can slow dance. Do it.
Go on dates. Leave your phone in the car.
