Healthy Marriage

Whether you’ve battled the occasional flu virus or maybe a more chronic physical challenge, you know what it feels like to be healthy — or not. Maybe you shook hands with someone at church who had the flu, kissed a juicy-nosed child, or just feel “off,” and now you’re sick. You feel run down, out of balance, out of steam.

The same can happen to a marriage. Marriage — that living, growing relationship between you and your spouse — can be impacted by its external environment. For instance, are you spending too much time watching TV instead of interacting with your husband or wife? Are either or you stressed by outside factors such as your career, your kids, interfering friends or family, or even your hectic schedules? Or maybe the internal dynamics of your relationship are showing symptoms that there’s a different potential problem.

Whatever the case, it’s critically important you do everything you can to keep your marriage vital and strong — in other words, healthy. The following articles will help you diagnose the state of your most important earthly relationship, and give you the checkup you need to maintain or regain your marital health.
