Remember your marriage is a gift! Even if you are both going through a rough patch and it doesn’t exactly feel very glorious at the moment it is still a major blessing. Just ask one of the many lonely people in the world! Please also remember that the spouse you have (who is always getting on your nerves), someone else would be very happy to have them! If you refuse to consider yourself blessed and start treating your spouse graciously, that someone else may start to seem like a much better option to them of always than you. Seriously think about it. Who on earth likes to be nagged to death? Is someone else saying sweet nothings to the one you refuse to treasure? Instead of always waiting for your spouse to change, why don’t you decide to change yourself? That is something you can certainly have control over, and you and your spouse will be happier for it!
