3 Ways to Evaluate the Success of Your Marriage
Every partnership faces challenges, but it is how we respond to them that allows us to flourish. the thief of joy is comparison, and comparing our marriage to another’s is no exception.
Do you ever question if you have what it takes to have a happy marriage?
To keep track of your progress, use one of these three techniques. comparisons are much healthier (and more realistic) than the success of your relationship
1. There is open and honest communication:
One of the characteristics of a successful marriage is that it provides a safe environment in which to discuss anything. Communication is more than just talking; it is a two-way street. It also includes listening.
- Are you able to listen and accept constructive criticism without becoming defensive?
- When you need to be honest with your husband, can you approach him gently?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, your marriage is likely to have healthy communication.
2. You ask yourself, “How am I loving my partner?” on a frequent basis:
At a marriage conference, the speaker asked individuals he mentored, “How are you loving your spouse?” He would next inquire if they felt their spouse would agree after hearing a response. Answering that question honestly will reveal some of the ways you could improve your love for your partner.
Chances are he’ll give you some answers that aren’t what you expected, but if your actual aim is to improve your marriage’s health, you’ll actively listen, take feedback, and act on it.
3. You are both growing into better versions of yourselves:
Our culture will tell you that the success of your marriage is determined by your individual happiness. The truth is that a happy marriage necessitates change. That doesn’t mean you have to give up everything about yourself. Rather, you’re transforming into a better version of yourself.
There will be conflicts and arguments, but a happy marriage will make you more loving, patient, kind, gentle, faithful, and self-controllable than before. If you and your spouse have improved in these areas, it means you’re assisting each other in becoming better people.
