Being His Friend {31 Days to a Better Marriage}

being his friendFrom the moment we take our vows, we are committing to a life time with our mate. A life time that will bring ups and sometimes, even some downs. A life time that will bring love and happiness. However, if there is no friendship within the marriage, it is going to be a long and lonely life time.

Friendship within the marriage is vital. Friendship brings about a closeness between two people. Friendship improves intimacy.

Here are some ways to be his friend: 
  • Talk to each other. Our closest friends are those we talk to regularly. I am not the kind of gal who goes to lunch, has coffee, or goes shopping with my girlfriends, but I do talk to them very regularly. We need to talk to our husband. Talk to him about our experiences, our heart, our plans, our hopes, and most important, ask him about those things too.

  1. I read it over there but decided to comment over here! It was lonely, lol. Loved this post Jenifer! After 34 years with The Sweetheart, I can say that we have weathered many ups and downs, thankfully more ups!! He is a good, good soul. He has always catered to me and I am very thankful. You know how they say in real estate, "Location, location, location!" Well my one bit of advice to newlyweds is "Communication, communication, communication!" You can't have a good marriage without it! The same goes with our walk with our Savior. If we never talk to Him how can we KNOW HIM? Hmmm....might be a good post for the both of us!! Blessings friend! ♥
