Can a Couple Stay in Love Forever?
Yes – Despite the rising divorce rates and others surviving in abusive marriages. And despite much more faking happiness on social media, staying genuinely in love is still possible.
You’ll be offended from time to time because we have different perspectives. Never nurse grudges. Take it easy. Refuse to harbour anger. No relationship can survive a continued assault by anger. When there’s tension, be quick to say sorry even if you have done no wrong.
Submit to your partner as scriptures advice (Ephesians 5:21). Refuse to be bossy. Humility wins. Say NO to the desire to control. Consider your partner better and wiser than you. Prioritize your partner’s needs. Be selfless. Be flexible. Work on yourself as you pray for your partner.
Listen to your partner and speak your mind with gentleness. Update your partner on your whereabouts. Be honest with your expectations. Be transparent in everything. Be accountable for how you spend your time and money. Compliment your partner liberally. Your good thoughts don’t bless anybody. Express love in deed and word.
