Every marriage has understood rules that are followed that can either make or break a relationship.
In looking back on the past 15 years of our marriage, there are some simple things we’ve done that I think can be credited to our marital success. These are things that have been seemingly unspoken rules that we follow in our relationship.
However, although we’ve never verbally established these practices, I believe that they are well worth every couple taking the time to discuss together and establish if they’re lacking in their relationship.
Here are four areas you and your wife should be on the same page:
1. Touching throughout the day
I suppose it started when we first got married, that every time we drove together in the car, prayed together at the dinner table, or walked together through a store, we would hold hands. Since that time, we continue to make it a regular practice that when we’re together, we make physical touch a frequent and familiar part of our daily routine.
2. Spending money wisely
Although one of us is naturally the “spender” and the other the “saver”, we’ve had very few fights over the years about money.
