Every relationship experiences difficulty and trouble. In marriage, it is possible for these to either create a wedge between you and your spouse, or to become stepping stones to a stronger, more resilient relationship. The key is to know how to apply the secrets of a strong marriage to your relationship and to your individual life as well.
When applied, these wonderful secrets can help establish a lasting foundation which will withstand the storms of life and will result in a fulfilling, long-lasting marriage. These secrets are honesty, respect, love, passion, communication, friendship, and understanding.
No marriage is perfect. The difference between couples who have a strong marriage and those who don't lies in how they handle conflict and also in the value they place on their relationship. It is important to apply basic rules of conflict resolution when disagreements arise to keep problems from becoming a source of deeper conflict.
Basic rules include avoiding discussion of problems when you are angry, learning to be good listeners, and being willing to search for a solution rather than insisting on having your way in the matter. In addition to solving problems, great couples strive to keep love and passion alive in their relationship and do their best to maintain open communication at all times.
