What are the 3 stages of “practice” in a marriage?
Stage One: The Excitement Stage-This is the beginning of being together. It is the honeymoon stage. You dream about your future and all the wonderful times you will have together.
You make the commitment to be together forever. You want to spend the rest of your life with each other.
Stage Two: Work Stage
After the honeymoon is over real life sets in. Children, employment, busyness, and stresses of life are part of this stage.
Marriage Books, Conferences, and God’s Word can help with how to keep closeness in marriage. We have done them all. But it is up to the two of us to put it into action. Dan and I both need to work on striving to keep our marriage close and healthy.
The more effort we put into our marriage, the healthier it will be.
It can be very hard. Many don’t make it. : (
Stage Three: Reward Stage: After you have put in a lot of time and effort in improving your marriage, it does become more fun.
You never stop finding ways to make your marriage better. It is constant but the reward is great.
