Marriage is one of the Seven Catholic Sacrament, but it is also a very important experience for anyone. To marry someone means sharing our life with another person. It takes work, commitment and love and both spouses need to be respectful to each other to be a truly happy and successful Christian family. The spouses are in this together.
Let’s discover 4 keys to work on each day to make your Christian marriage successful.
1. Pray Together
Sharing a moment of intimacy such as praying, helps establish a deep connection with your partner. It is very important, as a couple, to have your own time to spend together. Plan special dates or events, either to go out or just stay at home. Take some time to relax, talk and enjoy each other’s company. Going to mass together is also a good practice: being part of the parish community will help you to maintain the balance even with relationships outside your couple.

2. Improve the Communication
It is important to talk about successes and satisfactions, but also less pleasant things, such as problems. Expressing opinions and wishes will avoid misunderstandings. Also listening is another way to take care of yourself and it is a great starting point for having a lasting marriage.
Talking with your spouse is one of the best ways to keep your marriage healthy and successful. You always need to be honest about what you are feeling but even kind and respectful when you communicate. It is very important to be a good listener and to take time to understand what it is your spouse wants and needs from you. Remember to always share your thoughts and feelings with your spouse and get used to it, since you will be together for the rest of your life.
3. Be Forgiving for Each Others’ Wrongdoings
None of us is perfect, everyone makes mistakes. You won’t agree on everything but it is important to be fair and respectful during disagreements. Focus on your spouse’s point of view and try not to get angry. He/She may make you angry or hurt your feelings, but it is important to deal with them and move on. Remain committed to your spouse and the life you have built together. Focus on distinguishing the real wrongdoings from the little shortcomings, and strive to appreciate instead the positive things your partner does for you.
Furthermore, God always forgives us of our sins and wrongdoings: for this reason, Christian couples should follow His example and be forgiving with their spouses.
A symbol of peace and forgiveness is the cross where Jesus Christ was crucified for our Salvation. This mother pearl wall cross with gold-plated wedding rings is a must-have for Catholic couples.
4. Show your Spouse you are Thankful for Having Him/Her in Your Life
Always remember to tell your spouse that you’re thankful and grateful for having him/her in your life. Appreciate each others’ acts, your relationship, your family and your lives together. Show gratitude when your partner does something for you, such as cooking, helping your children and grocery shopping. Support each other emotionally and in everyday ways.
Your spouse and your relationship may grow and change with time, but these four ideas can really help your marriage stay successful over the years.
In the same way, your wedding rings, symbols of your union and love, will remain forever.
