Everyday we hear gut-wrenching stories of marriages–and families–falling apart.
These are so hard to hear, aren’t they? Perhaps you too have shed tears with a close friend or family member who has faced separation or divorce.
We listen to these heartbreaking stories and think, “Please don’t let that happen to my marriage, God.”
While every marriage is different (and it would be impossible and arrogant to assume that every marriage follows a particular pattern) many of these broken marriages share similar trouble spots–certain mindsets or habits that have slowly eroded the bond.
By examining the ways the Bible encourages husbands and wives to act in marriage, we can identify 5 mindsets or habits that signal that a marriage might be headed for trouble.
In my own marriage, I know that when I start practicing some of these unhealthy mindsets, my marriage suffers and there’s a noticeable tension. How about you?
For the health of your marriage, I encourage you to read through this list with an open and honest heart.
I also want to give you honest, heartfelt encouragement, along with next-step resources that can really help!
