Advice: In marriage, you bear each other’s burdens. If one partner is unhappy, it hurts the other. That’s why it’s so important that you are fulfilled. Seek to know God’s calling on your life and pursue it! Don’t play it safe for fear of hurting your marriage. The best gift you can give your spouse is you happy and whole. They’ll experience your joy too!

Their Word of Wisdom to other couples, “Marriage is a commitment between three: God, the husband and the wife. No one person on earth will fulfill all your needs. That is why marriages need a Christ-centered relationship, so Christ can fulfill all your needs that the spouse can’t; there is no room for selfishness in marriage. Treat your spouse as though they are your best friend.”

Izzy & DeBorah

Married June 3rd

IMG_6369Izzy ( nickname ) and DeBorah met while in college, at the time he was going through a divorce. And DeBorah was totally disabled, the result of a car accident. After two homes and raising a blended family of five children the couple has been together for 22 years 17 of them married. DeBorah says, “my husband is a very funny yet intelligent man, family oriented and makes me grateful to be alive.”

Advice the couple offers to other couples is to remember why you fell in love with your spouse and always remember the good that they do on a daily basis … this will help you overlook their ‘supposed’ shortcomings; keep a list of their good qualities and look at it everyday so that every time you look at them or look into their eyes you will always remember the good that you loved about them.

Couple of the Week

26 Mar

I recently began featuring inspiring couples on the Relationships-411 Facebook page in hopes of encouraging others who may be struggling or experiencing a low-point in their own marriage or relationship. My motivating reason for doing this is that I believe we can all learn from each other – no one person knows everything there is to know regarding successful relationship building – everything is not for everybody. Therefore, profiling couples from different backgrounds who are at varying stages of marriage gives a different perspective and flavor to marriage advice and best practices. Below is a re-cap of the couples who were profiled in March:

Sedgwick & Lykiska

Married July 13, 2014

Sedgwick-LykiskaAdvice to newly married couples: be certain your marriage is a move of God and not a move of emotions; marriage consists of 3 people: God, husband and wife – anyone else should be divorced; both spouses must be deeply rooted in Christ to have a successful marriage; and we tend to prepare for the engagement and wedding but fail to prepare for the marriage.

Pastor Mark & Twila

Married June 18, 1988

Mark-TwilaMark and Twila’s advice to other couples: find mature Godly couples to gleen from in good and difficult times; friends that have a marriage with evidence of spiritual fruit, not a perfect marriage, but a marriage that reflects the characteristics of our Father –  patience, love, peace, etc…

Sharing with those you trust and who genuinely care for you and your spouse is one of the greatest blessings to aide in building a strong and long lasting marriage.

“Without advice plans go wrong, but with many advisers they succeed.” Proverbs 15:22 GOD’S WORD® Translation

Blair and Breanna

Married July 5, 2014

Blair-Breanna Advice to other couples: always be accountable for the part that you play in the relationship, and support and assist one another in being the best you can be.
