Are you a newly married Christian couple? Or perhaps you’ve been married for quite some time and looking for ways to reconnect. Here are 5 tips for those who are married Christian couples. Whether you may be going through some hard times now, or you simply want to build a strong foundation – these tips are sure to help.
Pray Together Every Day
It’s simple to say that you will spend time praying with your spouse every day, but are you being realistic? Praying together is an important part of a Christian marriage, so taking the time to do it every day is a smart move. Before dinner pray as a family or right after climbing in bed at night – say a prayer together.
Find Time to Talk Every Day
This is a great tip for all married couples! Taking time to talk to each other every day is a way to make your marriage strong. Don’t be afraid to ask each other about their day. This is a great time to catch up and make sure both of you are on the same page. Having open communication daily will help avoid pent up frustration later on. Don’t wait until you are stressed out to vent, talk daily.
This means spending time going to church together and worshiping God together. It’s understandable if one of you has to miss church every now and again, but attending church together can really grow your faith and keep your marriage strong. Plus it sets an example for your children and builds a strong family foundation centered around Christ.
Spend Time With Each Other
Sure, it’s important to spend time talking together, but it’s even more important to spend good quality time together. Set aside time each week to spend time together. Yes, you may have to literally schedule it out, but it will be so worth it as your marriage grows stronger. Whether you are going out to dinner, watching a movie in or taking a walk in the park – quality one-on-one time is imperative.
Forgive Each Other
There will be times in your marriage when it’s so hard to forgive one another. However, married Christian couples should forgive each other because it helps your marriage in the long run. It’s easy to stay mad, but hard to forgive. Which path will you choose? Take some time to reflect by reading your bible. There are many scriptures centered around forgiveness and marriage.
