Marriage is not 50-50. Marriage is 100-100. Love is not splitting everything in half, but giving everything you’ve got.

And love isn’t a quick fix – its a lifelong pursuit.

Dave Willis lays out 7 laws that will set any relationship free.

7 Laws

1. Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong; it makes you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak; it sets you free.

2. Bitterness and love can’t live in the same heart. Each day we must decide which one gets to stay.

3. Lifelong love isn’t the result of compatibility; its the result of commitment.

4. Treat your spouse the way you want your kids’ future spouse to treat them someday.

5. Honesty is the first step toward intimacy. Every healthy relationship is built on a foundation of trust.

6. A strong marriage requires choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other.

7. Time is the currency of relationships, so to build stronger relationships start by investing time.

    I think I would add Humility to this list.
    A golden years couple who had been married for many happy years were asked if they had a photo of their wedding. Simultaneously they pulled out the exact same wedding photo from their wallets. Both said they remembered where they were at the beginning & how their spouse had helped them to reach where they are today.
