It has been my experience in working with the National Institute of Marriage, that the issue of communication is at the very core of a relationship. Most of the conflict that occurs with my husband stems from my inability to listen to him and really hear what he's trying to tell me.

Well I like the verse about "never letting the sun set on your anger". Although my wife and I dont follow it like we should. One tip I have, consider each word carefully, especially when you're angry, because once you've said them they will remain forever. And things escalate quickly.

Essentially what were doing is to retrain one another to have respect to the needs of the other and the overall good of the marriage bond.

I think it's wise to split the first session down the middle and listen to both. This will help you evaluate their overall perception of their marriage partner and the condition of their marriage as they see it individually.

Give homework assignments that get them working on an 'us' and not an 'I' placing the focus on idividual accountability.

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,
Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.
1 Peter 3:7 You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman, and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.

KimC - hhhmm ones that REALLY work? Praying together every day. You having your own relationship with Jesus and your husband having his own, and then you two coming together to enrich each other's lives. Those who pray together, stay together. PRAYER, COMMUNICATION-alot of it, telling each other how you feel, etc., are some of the successful tips that REALLY work.

Be ye not equally yoke together with unbelievers. I still believe that Gods blessing of all marriages in which He Himself bind this marriage it will definitely prosper. Believers I mean who are good followers of God's words

Well you need God to teach you how to submit to your husband as unto the Lord. Be more of a giver than a taker. Try and look as nice as possible. [You don't want to look like an old hag]

Love your neighbor as your self. God is Love. Love and Cherish each other. Respect each other, Consider each others feelings.Pray and study the Bible together.
There are many more but if you can do these you should have a very happy marriage.

Woman is created from the rib of man thus is the protector of his heart. Look at women called virtuous in the bible,their husbands are won over by their conduct and character.Ideally men are the head but women the neck directing them.So its important for the woman to have a solid relationship with God,not a religious one that finds fault but a real relationship.Her husband is her head and God is his head so in essence being one with his head(God) will mean being one with him in your marriage relationship.
---achie7757 on 3/24/07

If you build a relationship on principals of God. How one person should handle another. Without God as the ultimate foundation of a marriage relationship there is not much hope. Mutual respect. Emotional support in the knowing that your spouse and yourself can pray together, be honest, humble yourselves in front of the all-seeing God and being able to admit to wrongs aloud in prayer and ask for forgiveness and guidance. Of course love overlays everything.

May humbly suggest the followwing principals, from personal experience of married life for over 25yrs.
Both partners must be members of the family of God. Spiritual maturity will reduce most of the undesirable characters which are inherent due to OSN, and so lesser conflicts or misunderstandings.
