1. Hello and welcome! It’s episode 254 of #MrMrsBetterHalf. Mr. & Mrs Better Half is designed to strengthen marriages & relationships that will lead to marriage, with wisdom from God's Word.
2. If you missed the last episode, we dealt with the issue: “My family has an opportunity to relocate but I’m worried that it may not necessarily be the best move. Please advise”. If you missed it, get it here: bit.ly/2ZuPT9w #MrMrsBetterHalf
3. Today, I’ll be sharing “35 Pearls of Wisdom” to help both single and married people better understand their partners, communicate, love and keep the fires of romance burning. This is important because relationships take conscious effort and work. #MrMrsBetterHalf
4. These are learnings from past episodes; so, I encourage that you meditate on these quotes, save them, share them and continually remind yourselves of them. Let’s get started. #MrMrsBetterHalf
5. Singles, note the all-important rule: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’. Treat your date how you want to be treated. You want to be treated like a lady, treat him like a gentleman. You want to be respected, treat her with respect. #MrMrsBetterHalf
6. Increase your knowledge bank. You should be the number 1 expert on the subject of your spouse. Be your spouse’s hero. Do things for him or her constantly that make it clear s/he was on your mind. #MrMrsBetterHalf
7. Money will amplify your flaws or your strengths both personally and how you operate as a couple. Many couples find it easier to share their bodies than to share their money. Watch where your heart is, that’s where your treasure lies. #MrMrsBetterHalf
8. Your family and relationships are irreplaceable. Money is everywhere. They aren’t. The truth is that it is better to be modest and loved than to be rich, miserable and emotionally alone. #MrMrsBetterHalf
9. There are no perfect people in marriage. There are imperfect people who have chosen to handle their baggage. Before trying to change your spouse, ask yourself if you might be the one who needs to change. #MrMrsBetterHalf
10. Ensure you pray together about your finances. Don’t hide from your spouse if there’s a financial crisis. You will be surprised what you are capable of if you have the right motivation. #MrMrsBetterHalf
11. Fact: In every man (or woman) there is a king and a fool. It’s who you speak to that will respond to you. Changing your words can change the atmosphere of your home even when things are tough. #MrMrsBetterHalf
12. Love is patient, gentle, kind, good, humble, respectful, selfless, agreeable, enduring, gracious, giving. Remember, real love exalts what is right and true in God’s eyes above a depravity that may now be popular. #MrMrsBetterHalf
13. Singles, the true mark of adulthood is not age, but being responsible and independent. Marriage is not for the immature. Grow up and be accountable. #MrMrsBetterHalf
14. Marriage is a two-way street. You both have to give to get. Your relationship with your spouse needs nurturing. Be generous to each other in thoughts, words and deeds. #MrMrsBetterHalf
15. As an adult/married man or woman, if you have not left your parents physically, emotionally or financially, it will be difficult to control their interference in your marriage. #MrMrsBetterHalf
16. Pray for and show respect to your in-laws. Don’t give up on difficult in-laws. If you can succeed in spite of a difficult boss, you can triumph over difficult in-laws. #MrMrsBetterHalf
17. When dealing with family skirmishes, do not throw childish tantrums. Act with maturity. Don’t use abusive words or bad language on your spouse. Grow in emotional intelligence. #MrMrsBetterHalf
18. Clear boundaries are important in building a good relationship with extended families and friends. Having no boundaries is a recipe for in-law trouble in marriage. #MrMrsBetterHalf
19. Learn to stop and smell your own roses. Don’t keep sniffing at other people’s flowers; tend your own garden. If you want your marriage to blossom, tend it. #MrMrsBetterHalf
20. If you are the primary breadwinner, display generosity. Don’t ever degrade your spouse by withholding cash. Embrace an ‘ours’ not ‘mine’ mentality. #MrMrsBetterHalf
21. Make sure you stand guard over your family. Be diligent and aggressive in prayer – prayer changes things. #MrMrsBetterHalf
22. Show appreciation. “Honey, you’re such a great husband/wife. I’m beyond blessed to have you.” Don’t assume your spouse knows this. Tell him/her. #MrMrsBetterHalf
23. If you are a Christian, know that loving your wife and respecting your husband are not requests; they are commandments. Do it as unto the Lord. He will reward you. #MrMrsBetterHalf.
24. Singles, don’t query submission in marriage. Rather, marry someone you can submit to. Determine in courtship what you can/can’t live with. Don’t marry anyone planning to change him/her. #MrMrsBetterHalf
25. Poor communication, poor friendship, poor trust and poor intimacy make marriages disposable. These are things you must work on to have an enjoyable marriage. #MrMrsBetterhalf
26. Fight for your marriage. Don’t dwell on ‘what ifs’. Don’t cry over spilt milk. Things can change for the better. What are the things that need to change to have a good marriage? Read about them. Study. Practice what you study. #MrMrsBetterHalf
27. Don’t accept abuse - physical, mental or otherwise. If your spouse is violent, don’t endanger your life and become a statistic. Better to be alive and separated than married and murdered. #MrMrsBetterHalf
28. The attraction is important, but some things are more important than attraction. Such as someone you can trust; that can provide for you; one who is a good team player, well brought up and who will have your best interest at heart. #MrMrsBetterHalf
29. When it comes to faith, you must be of the same mind and understanding so that you can walk in the same direction. Faith is an important value to share in marriage. #MrMrsBetterHalf
30. Singles, submit yourselves to a church and a pastor and be counselled before getting married. Do you have unresolved issues or niggling doubts? Work on them. #MrMrsBetterHalf
31. If you are about to marry, please remember that a wedding is an event. Marriage is for life. Always remember 2 things: count the cost & mind your priorities. Make your marriage, not wedding, your priority. #MrMrsBetterHalf
32. If you don’t value yourself, it will be difficult for others to. Take a moment to consider how you treat yourself – do you care for your body, mind and soul? #MrMrsBetterHalf
33. Your body is the one thing that is 100% yours before marriage. Nobody should care for it better than you do. As much as it lies within your power, treat your body right. Eat nourishing food. Exercise. Invest in good health. #MrMrsBetterHalf
34. Seeking a mate? It is important to look good. Treat your body with respect. Wash it and dress it well. I am not saying be a slave to trends or fashion - but pay attention to being neat and nice to behold. #MrMrsBetterHalf
35. Don’t be desperate to find a man or woman to love you or you open yourself up to those who want to take advantage of you. Calm down and remember you have value. Don’t throw your pearls before swine. #MrMrsBetterHalf
36. Never resist the temptation to be sentimental. ‘Honey, I just wanted you to know that I love you.’ Use endearing words; blow his or her mind; invest continuously in romantic dates, gifts and give special attention. #MrMrsBetterHalf
37. A healthy happy marriage that is built on God’s word will withstand the storms of temptation. Make your spouse happy. Be the best husband or wife you can be and blow the competition out of the park! #MrMrsBetterHalf
38. Healthy couples fight for resolution; unhealthy couples fight for their personal victory. When you fight, the point should not be to inflict pain; it should be to find a middle-ground and douse tension. #MrMrsBetterHalf
39. Bringing up past misdeeds is not fighting fair. When you have a misunderstanding and you say you have forgiven your partner, forgive them and leave it there. Stop trying to draw blood. #MrMrsBetterHalf
40. I hope this has been helpful to you. I will be back next week with another topic. Until then, thanks for following, participating and RTing. May your marriages and relationships be sweet! #MrMrsBetterHalf
