Marriage Quotes That Actually Help Your Marriage

Monday Marriage Motivation

Great marriages need constant enrichment. Although most couples walk down the aisle madly in love, everyday life happens. Couples who do not have any support and encouragement in their marriage toolbox suffer greatly. For some couples daily stress is just a test. For some couples daily stress lead to the dreaded divorce. One way, I keep my marriage healthy is by reading quotes, scriptures and great books. Over the years, I have found several great quotes that have helped me to grow in forgiveness, friendship, intimacy, love, acceptance and personal responsibility. I can tell you reading the quotes are encouraging, but I find true enrichment in applying them. I hope your marriage will bloom too.
