Advice for a Married Couple

How you treat others is indicative of how your relationship is with God.

If you don’t trust your spouse, you probably don’t trust God.

If you want your spouse to do everything for you, you probably want God to do everything for you.

Treat your spouse like they are the man or woman you want them to be, and that is what they will become.

Appreciate each other. Don’t forget how wonderful your spouse is. Wake up in the morning and tell them, “Wow, I get to be married to you!” [Tweet This!]
