Happy and healthy marriages require two people working toward the same goal. You both have to want to have that happy and healthy marriage and be willing to work for it.

Whether you're still waiting to find your companion, are a newlywed or have been married for fifty years, these are some solid goals to work toward:

1. Never give up. Keep working toward a great marriage

2. Don't confuse a bad moment with a bad marriage

There is so much truth to this ... #marriage #marriagegoals #marriagetip #marriagerocks #healthymarriage #husbandandwife
