10 Tips for Young Married Couples

Tips for couples. Great advice!

  1. “I’ve been married thirty-four years. Treat each other with love and respect. Be each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Put God in the center of your relationship by praying for each other. Don’t badmouth each other in front of others.” ~Tamera Lynn Warden Kraft
  2. “Keep the cross at the center of your marriage. Be willing to lose disagreements. You don’t always have to be right. And laugh together as much as possible.” ~Diane Day
  3. “Pray with each other every day. Out loud, holding hands. Keep dating long after the wedding and especially after the kids come along. Remember a good marriage doesn’t just happen. You have to work at it.” ~Michelle Shocklee
  4. “Actively keep love alive. Set aside time to be together. Go on dates. Use creativity to spark romance and keep the embers burning.” ~Dana Arcuri
  5. “Laugh, forgive, play . . . ” ~Kathleen O’Donnell Grone
  6. “Put each other before extended family. If they (family, parents, etc.) really love you, they will agree.” ~Penny Raine
  7. “Never, ever cut down or criticize your husband in public or in front of your children or close family. Husbands thrive on encouraging and uplifting words from their wives. You can actually see them stand or sit higher when getting compliments from their wives. I haven’t been perfect at this, but I know the importance of it after twenty-six years of marriage.” ~Elizabeth Wehman
  8. “Always remember that when you married, you made a vow to your spouse and to God. When things get tough (and they will), honor your vow to God.” ~Lucy Ann Moll
  9. “Your spouse is not your enemy.” ~Pam Halter
  10. “Divorce is not an option. And love covers a multitude of sin.” ~Michelle Strite Hortenberry

  1. I loved the comment : “Divorce is not an option” because when one finds love in the relationship and is happy, there is no reason not to try and work out any diiferences that may crop up! Its love that matters.

    Thank you for this piece. Sometimes I want advice from other married couples besides my parents and don’t always know where to turn. My husband and I have been married for one year, 4 months, and a couple of days! Every day I feel like I am learning more about my husband, and we have been together for over 8 years! Thanks again, and I look forward to reading more advice! –Molly Loggins

  4. Saw this on Twitter, which led me to Pinterest, which led me here. Ha. Well, going on 23 years so I can tell you one thing for sure… there are bumps in the road and times when you won’t even like your spouse, but communication and prayer will get you through anything.

  5. Thank you so much!
