7 New Year Resolutions for your Marriage 2


However good your marriage is, there’s always room for a little improvement.

Resolve to make 2006 a spectacular year for your marriage!

1. Express love daily

  • Choose to love without conditions daily.
  • Say “I love you” and mean it.
  • Show love through your words and actions.

2. Apologise more readily

  • Say “Sorry” and mean it.
  • Admit your mistakes before you’re caught out.
  • Don’t attempt to make yourself look better by trivialising or retaliating when it’s you that’s in the wrong.

3. Forgive more graciously



  • Don’t hold a grudge or try to make them feel worse.
  • Never gloat.
  • Remember, next time it will probably be you that messes up.

4. Speak well of each other

  • Never badmouth your partner to anyone else in public. Be respectful at all times.
  • Sort out your problems, issues, and ‘dirty laundry’ in private first.
  • Don’t confide in other people without your partner knowing and agreeing.

5. Make time for each other

  • Maintain and develop shared interests and spend quality time together.
  • Do what you can to have regular exclusive/special times that nothing else interferes with (a ‘date night’).
  • Examine your schedule and don’t let yourself get so busy that you never see your partner.

6. Allow space for each other

  • Don’t spend 24 hours of every day with each other
  • Allow each other to develop hobbies and interests
  • Though you’re a partnership, remember you are also still two individuals. Don’t live independently but don’t cramp each other’s style either.

7. Keep romance alive

  • Guard against your relationship becoming stale or mundane
  • Be spontaneous!
  • Romantic surprises are fun!
