Are you Happy in your Marriage?

This information should be shared. We hear too many negative statistics about marriage that divorce seems inevitable. It is not! It is possible to be happily married. It is possible to salvage a marriage. The RespectedHusband and his counterpart, the RespectfulWife are two great resources for spouses to learn how to love and respect each other. Love is a choice! Respect is a choice! You can learn to love and receive love. You can learn to respect in a way your spouse will receive it and you will feel respected as well. These two blogs are very helpful.

Then you will find your willingness to work on your marriage and your ability to effect positive change in your marriage will happen! God Bless!
