Important Steps To A Healthy Marriage -II
“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”
– Dave Meurer
This quote by Dave Meurer is spot on, absolutely accurate. No one is perfect, enjoying marriage is actually learning to embrace the difference and loving the other person just the way he/she is.
Embrace the differences:
“ Strength lies in differences”- Stephen Covey
Men and women are completely different, and there is so much beauty in that. Women think differently, respond to situation differently and the list can go on. A man and a woman can attend a wedding event, and provide different accounts of the same event. While a man might give his account in one short sentence a woman might take a longer time describing the details of the wedding.
Embrace the difference and see the good in those differences. Instead of thinking she talks too much. Admire her for being so observant and having a sharp mind to recollect all the details and vice versa.
Look for the good in people , focus on it, celebrate it.

Invest in your marriage
The importance of making an investment in your marriage cannot be over-emphasized.
Investing time and resources.
Make time to learn from people who know more on the subject.
Make time to bond with one another. Something as simple as just making time to talk and reflect is priceless.
Success in any area of life is intentional and marriage is not an exception.
You can enjoy a great marriage. Give it all it takes!
