A husband who had been married a long time shared the secret of their successful marriage. He said, “When we first got married my wife told me that she would handle all of the little decisions in our marriage and leave the big decisions for me. So far, in 30 years we have not been faced with any big decisions!”
In reality, a successful marriage is not that simple. It takes a lot of hard work over the years. The couple needs to communicate well. There has to be some compromise along the way. But the most important decision a married couple will ever make is to pledge to incorporate biblical principles into their relationship. This is the best recipe for a happy marriage.
“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”—Ephesians 5:33.
