Great marriage don't just happen. FamilyLife CanadaYou have to give 100% to each other. 

Advice from grandma on Hallmark’s Cranberry Christmas; It’s tough, a lot of the time. You have no idea what to do. And there’s a big learning curve.  The stakes are high. Marriage isn’t easy and the rookie mistake is thinking it aught to be. It takes work. 

  1. Express what you’re thinking because they can’t read minds 
  2. Admit your shortcomings because they are obvious anyway. 
  3. Do the work, because making a marriage last, fighting for your love is the most beautiful and challenging and terrify and worthwhile work you will ever do!

There are many factors that contribute to a satisfying marriage relationship such as love, commitment, trust, time, attention, good communication including listening, partnership, tolerance, patience, openness, honesty, respect, sharing, consideration, generosity, willingness & ability to compromise, constructive management of disagreements or arguments, willingness to see another’s viewpoint, ability and willingness to forgive & apologize, fun.

The list is simple and obvious yet it can be very difficult for individuals/couples to restore their marriage relationship to a satisfying one when difficulties arise or when they drift apart.
