  7. Give your husband grace, just as our Lord does for you.

  8.  Forgive him often, don’t bring up things from the past, or dwell on the past.

  9.  Learn how to be quiet…no really….he does not need to be under a constant barrage of all your thoughts, especially after he has been at work all day.

  10.  Be his safe place. Be his best friend. Confidante. Earn his trust.

  11.  Laugh freely and often.

  12. Snuggle on a regular basis. Hug him. Hold him. Kiss him. Be near him.

  13.  Date your husband at home. If you are young and money is tight, get creative, use resources you have on hand already. Improvise, adapt, and overcome.

  14.  Encourage him:  It is natural to look at all the wrong things our husbands do, the we need to be looking for ways to encourage them. Encourage them as a husband, father, provider, and follower of Christ. Tell him you appreciate him. Look for the good in him.

  15.  Most importantly pray for him on a daily basis. Seek the Lord’s will for your husband and marriage.

Your marriage is a sacred union between you and your husband. It will not always be an easy thing to work at; but with trust in the Lord, hope in His faithfulness, and love for your husband, all things are possible.
