When couples first get married, they often have a shared vision of their future. They talk about where they want to live, how many children they want to have, and what their goals are in life. However, as life happens, unexpected things can cause couples to shift their priorities and goals. This can lead to a lack of balance in their relationship, which can ultimately lead to a breakdown of their marriage.

We visit with couples all the time and it is very common to see marriages get out of whack when the priorities change in their marriage. For many couples we talk to, their priorities start out looking like this:

  • GOD
  • WORK

This is pretty typical for most couples. Imagine if one of the spouses priorities change and it looks like this:

  • WORK
  • KIDS
  • GOD

You can see how when priorities change, that massive impact it can have on a marriage and so many other aspects. It is also so important for couples to manage and balance their time properly. This will help keep the priorities in order.

It is crucial for couples to have the right priorities in their marriage. When both spouses are clear on what their priorities are, and are in agreement, they can make intentional choices that support their shared goals and values. This can help them build a strong, healthy, and fulfilling relationship that lasts a lifetime.

The first think to do as a couple is sit down and put your priorities in order in your marriage so everything you do can move towards those things. Once you have those in order, then you can do specific things to keep those priorities in the right order.

One way to prioritize your marriage is to schedule regular date nights. Spending quality time together on a regular basis can help you avoid getting distracted by less important things and stay committed to your relationship. Another way is to practice active listening, where you make a conscious effort to listen to your spouse and understand their feelings, thoughts, and concerns.

Physical intimacy is also an essential part of a healthy marriage. Making time for intimacy and prioritizing your spouses pleasure and satisfaction can help you both feel connected and fulfilled.

It is also important to express gratitude and appreciation for your spouse and their contributions to your life and relationship, as well as to show affection and love in small ways throughout the day.

Open and honest communication is another key aspect of a healthy marriage. Being transparent with your spouses about your feelings, needs, and desires can help you avoid conflicts and ensure that your decisions are aligned with your shared goals and values. Supporting each other’s goals and dreams and practicing forgiveness are also important for building a strong foundation for your relationship.

Ultimately, couples must be united and on the same page in order to achieve balance in their marriage. While each spouse may have their own unique qualities, talents, and skills, it is vital for couples to come together in unity and have the same purpose and goals. When couples are clear on their priorities, they can build a strong foundation for their relationship that can withstand the ups and downs of life together.
