Are there secrets to a good marriage? And if so, what are they? The answer to the first question is 'Yes.' The answer to the second question is a little more involved and before I begin to get into it let me introduce myself.
I am the Marriage Authority in charge of SaveYourMarriage.com.
You may ask yourself, what makes this person an authority? Well, to begin with I have been married for over 36 years and I know that I will be married to my spouse until I die or until my spouse dies.
How do I know that?
The answer to that question is the first secret to staying married. So, I will reveal Secret #1.
Decide to stay married for life. Not very earth shattering is it? Oh, but it is.
What precedes every action you take in life? The answer quite simply are decisions. First there is the decision, then comes the action. Example: You decide to call your spouse. Then you go through the action of calling your spouse.
You don't call your spouse first, then decide to do it.
All actions are preceded by a decision. To end a marriage you or your spouse must decide to end it. If you never decide to end it how could it end? You may say it will end because my spouse wants it to end. But if your spouse has decided to end it, then you need help to get them to change their mind.
How to get your spouse to change their mind is another one of the secrets to staying married.
