1. No one is perfect. Forgive. You need forgiveness too. Forgive how you want to be forgiven, not what they deserve.
2. Build your relationship with God and depend on God. The spouse is not God and will let you down, can’t help it. God never will let you down.
3. A spouse can only be who they are. Don’t expect more or less and you have friends and God for what they cannot provide (I mean compliments or conversations or what not). If he/she always criticizes, find a friend for compliments or better yet learn more about what God says about you in the Bible and be satisfied with that.
4. Marriage commitment is binding. No divorce, you gotta make it work. Keep your problems between you and God, work it out, stay humble. And refer back to number 1. Repeat.❤
