Man’s ways are inspired by the flesh and Satan. Satan is working to divide the home and split the marriage. The question remains. Will we do it God’s way, or will we do it man’s way which Satan quickly uses? Monday, January 15, 2018 Kigume Karuri 14 Slide15: 2. Successful couples learn to intentionally do things that will bring happiness back when life pulls it away. Happiness is not the most important thing.

Successful couples have learned to resist holding grudges and bringing up the past. They remember that they married an imperfect person and so did their spouse. 9.

Feelings can go and come back but commitment can be a lasting essential element in the marriage . 11. Endure the marriage crisis. Crises are like storms. A crisis can be a new beginning.
