Ever been going through a rough time and asked yourself, “Why did I get married?!?” If you don’t have a ready answer during those times, you can very quickly begin to despise your mate and your marriage.
Here’s what you do: During the good times, jot down the reason why you’re glad you got married. Maybe it was your spouse’s sense of humor … maybe it was the good looks … perhaps it was your spouse’s spiritual maturity … maybe it was the compassion your spouse has the ability to show you. Whatever the reasons are, capture and put them away for a rainy day when you’re wondering why you got married. Being able to visit the reasons you married your spouse will help you weather the tough days.
