How To Save A Dying Marriage

You can read one of the best articles on loving your spouse here. It’s by Robertson McQuilkin and is also available in longer form as a book
{A Promise Kept}. This is a must read if you’re struggling to love your spouse in the midst of a dark period of marriage {there are dark periods aren’t there? Are we the only ones?}. This is gold. Go read and glorify God by recommitting to love your spouse through poverty, riches, sickness, health, darkness, etc.

So, if you’re struggling in your marriage, I would suggest you do these things, accompanied with prayer:

1} Go back with your spouse and look through your wedding album together. There was a time when the love “felt” real.
2} Read the book of Leviticus together. I know you think I’m crazy, but try it. Seriously. You’ll both walk away feeling that God is holy and you’re both rotten, depraved sinners who should repent. And you’ll see a picture of His Son and the grace and mercy that He offers you and your marriage.
3} Read McQuilkin’s book or article.
4} Do whatever it takes to fight sin and keep your marriage alive!
