Ideas for Improving Marriage
Marriage begins with a promise between a man and a woman to honor and cleave to each other for life. Too many couples depend on love to keep their marriage together, but commitment is the adhesive of marriage, and love is the reward of keeping the promise o stand beside each other through both good and bad times, in both sickness and in health, in both poverty and wealthy. The process of keeping that promise is what makes love grow between the two of them.

The cause of most marital conflict is not because they are from “different planets” or genders. The more common, everyday conflict occurs when two opposite personality types try to make a joint decision. They simply see the situation from vastly different perspectives – which can lead to great consternation when there is a lack of deep appreciation and understanding of the other’s approach. If you want to improve the quality of your marriage, an essential ingredient is the degree of understanding and appreciation of the other’s approach to issues due to their personality bias.

Keep in mind that your husbands are men. And men eat. Wives have to study their husband’s peculiar likes and dislikes in this matter. Let the wife try, therefore, if she has not already done so, to get up a little knowledge of the art of ordering dinner, to say the least of it. This task, if she disposed to learn it, will in time be easy enough; moreover, if in addition she should acquire some practical knowledge of cookery, she will find ample reward in the gratification it will be the means of affording her husband.
