Six Steps to a Good Marriage


These are definitely not Six Steps to a Perfect Marriage, and I can’t guarantee that they are even Six Steps to a Great Marriage. However, I do believe that if these six steps are followed by both partners in good faith then a good marriage must surely result.

  1. Be the right person
  2. Marry the right person
  3. Put God first, then your spouse (then your kids, if applicable)
  4. Participate in some decent premarital counseling
  5. Read Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs and apply the principles
  6. Read Sacred Sex by Tim Alan Gardner and apply the principles
