  1. Self Analysis;- Stop the blame game. Look in the mirror for the real troubler of your marriage.
  1. Forgiveness:-Decide to forgive your partner no matter the hurt of the past. Behave like a diamond miner, remove all the dirt to get the glitters. Eph.4 vs.32.
  1. Write every good he/she has done for you in the past. During your courtship, before you started courting and in the earlier part of your marriage, take stock of what your spouse did that gladdens you. Do you know that it is easy to forget past good deeds but easy to remember old hurts?
  1. Generous Appreciation. Honour and commend each other. Appreciate each other. Make your wife/husband day.
  1. Golden hours rule. Devote one hour everyday weekends (two hours) to each other. Switch off the phone, T.V, Computer games and the laptop. Close the newspaper, and put the children away. Sit very close or better still on each other’s lap, place heads on each other’s lap, massage each other, talk, talk and talk. Share your mind. Be open. Crack jokes, Speak the truth in love.

  1. If you want God to touch your marriage, then touch your spouse. One of the greatest problems of old or lonely people and widows is the absence of somebody to touch them. How do you normally feel when your hair dresser or barber is working on your hair? How do you feel when somebody helps you to massage your body? Touch is the most basic form of communication. A rich touch can enhance marriage relationship. This is not just in the bedroom. A caring touch in the kitchen, living room, on the way to the market, early morning massage, a kiss, holding of hands, an encouraging hands on the shoulders, an enthusiastic embrace, a surprise touch on the breast, hands on the lap, sleeping in each other’s arms. It is a fantastic way of communicating, care, intimacy and affection. It is a way to tell your spouse “I value you”.
