Welcome to episode 50 of the REAL Men Podcast. This podcast will challenge, encourage, and equip us to be God’s man at home. In today’s episode, we will discuss the key to a successful marriage.
In the words of Jimmy Evans of Marriage Today, “you have a 100% chance of a successful marriage as long as you do marriage God’s way.” Everything that God creates, He creates it to succeed. We find the creation of marriage in Genesis chapter two. We also find in these verses the key to a successful marriage.
In today’s podcast, I’ll share with you the key to a successful marriage – a marriage for life that increases in happiness. Surveys suggest that happiness within a marriage is highest in the early years of the marriage. As children enter the picture, the happiness within the marriage goes down, reaching it’s lowest when the children are in middle and high school. If the marriage survives these tough years, happiness tends to return after the children leave home, but it seldom returns to the level of the early years.
God’s intention is that happiness within marriage is ever increasing. The key to a successful marriage will equip you to ensure happiness in your marriage. It doesn’t happen naturally or automatically. Marriage is tough and ever increasing happiness in marriage is even more difficult. However, equipped with this key and some intentionality, you can have a successful marriage.
