The marriage dream is FREE; however, the marriage hustle COST!
Often couples enter marriage with the dream of a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and having a marriage that is “happy and conflict free EVERYDAY.”
To achieve all of your dreams for your marriage, you must hustle [work] for your marriage. The things you need and want will not come by osmosis and it will not come because you dream it. God said “Faith without work is dead.”
Follow these simple tips on having the marriage you want and need:
Working as a team is the only way your marriage dreams will become reality and your goals will be achieved.
Not I but We:
Marriage is not an individual task. It is a spouse centered task. Having the correct focus when it comes to the actions you display in your marriage will help in achieving the marriage goals. Its not about “I” but instead “We.”
Learning your spouse love, financial, emotional and physical language is crucial in achieving your marriage dreams.
We are all imperfect and will make mistakes. It’s imperative that you understand this and apply it with mercy and grace to your spouse. You will make mistakes. Your spouse will make mistakes. Your marriage cannot survive without forgiveness because without it, your spouse will always be behind the eight ball with you. They will not have the freedom to correct their actions, the freedom of expression nor will allow for you guys to grow and achieve your dreams together as a team.
Tip: Forgiveness is not always easy but remember it takes more energy to hold a grudge than it does to forgive.
