7 Ways to Enrich Your Marriage

Many couples today are not prepared for the problems that will show up in their marriage. When issues do arise in your marriage, it’s important that you and your spouse are ready to respond to them; otherwise your relationship may be headed for serious trouble.

In order to have a lasting and fulfilling marriage, it’s important that you have some sort of a foundation. These foundations look different from marriage to marriage.

How to Know if Relationship Interference is from God

When tensions rise and feelings get hurt in your relationship, you may wonder if God is sending relationship interference or unseen forces who are trying to destroy what God established.

When you feel like you’ve been living right for God in your relationship, but something continues to get in the way, you may ask yourself is this God’s way of letting you know that you shouldn’t be in that relationship, or if it’s the devil trying to sabotage your relationship.

When we enter in a new relationship, it’s important that you […]

6 Ways to Strengthen a Long-Distance Relationship

Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind blows out candles and fans fire.” -Rochefoucauld

Long-distance relationships (LDR) are proliferating, with an estimated 14 million couples defining their relationships as such and a staggering 75 percent of engaged couples reporting having been in a long distance relationship at some point.

The 10 Signals That He May Not Be Ready for Marriage

I have a few buddies—married men, now—who used to drink and sleep around like you wouldn’t believe. In college, their dorm rooms smelled like gym shorts and beer cans. If I’d given it any thought at all (which, I admit, I didn’t), I would have sworn they’d never get married, or at the very least,…

The person right next to you.
