Unfortunately, sometimes we get to a point in marriage where we treat our friends better than our spouse.
We give them our full attention when they speak.
We are kind.
We laugh at their jokes.
We treat them with respect.
We use our best manners.
We give them grace when they mess up.
Why does this happen in marriage? For a number of reasons – sometimes we just get too complacent and all of the niceties go out the window … sometimes needs are not being met and we are harboring resentment.
Whatever the cause is … it is important for us to know our marriage is the most important friendship we have. It would be wise of us to work on it just the same way we do our other friendships!
If you are dissatisfied with the current state of your marriage, you might be surprised what you can do just by trying to being a good friend!
