The Best Marriage Advice EVER

Every couple should read this.
When Ashley and I got married thirteen years ago, we were young and in love, but we were also pretty clueless (me especially)! Along the way, we’ve had so many people share wise advice and life experiences with us, which has helped guide our family through good times and hard times.
Through the years, I’ve been collecting some of the best {{ marriage advice others have shared with us (and some I had to learn through my own mistakes). If you apply these twenty-five principles below to your relationship, it could make a life-changing difference in your marriage.

1. Choose to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other.
Love is a commitment, not a feeling.

2. Always answer the phone when your husband/wife is calling.
When possible, try to keep your phone off when you’re together with your spouse.

3. Make time together a priority.
Budget for a consistent date night. Time is the “currency of relationships,” so consistently invest time into your marriage.

4. Surround yourself with friends who will strengthen your marriage.
Remove yourself from people who may tempt you to compromise your character.

5. Make laughter the soundtrack of your marriage.
Share moments of joy. And even in the hard times, find reasons to laugh.

6. In every argument, remember that there won’t be a “winner” and a “loser.”
You’re partners in everything so you’ll either win together or lose together. Work together to find a solution.

7. Realize that a strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time.
It’s usually a husband and wife taking turns being strong for each other in the moments when the other feels weak.

8. Prioritize what happens in the bedroom.
It takes more than sex to build a strong marriage, but it’s nearly impossible to build a strong marriage without it.

9. Remember that marriage isn’t 50/50 — divorce is 50/50.
Marriage has to be 100/100. It’s not splitting everything in half, but both partners giving everything they’ve got.

10. Give your best to each other, not your leftovers after you’ve given your best to everyone else.
