Marriage Tips from Mr. Dennis Rainey from Family Life

Here are 3 tips from Dennis Rainey to help you battle isolation—and win—in your marriage:

“Pray together every day. I’m sure you’ve heard me say this before, but it’s worth repeating because it’s probably the single most important piece of advice.”

“Don’t skip date night. This isn’t just a good idea; I’m not sure our marriage would have survived if Barbara and I hadn’t set aside some time each week to connect with each other. It doesn’t have to be fancy. When our kids were little, every Sunday night Barbara would decompress while I put the kids to bed, made dinner, and cleaned up the kitchen. Then we’d lock ourselves in our room for dinner and uninterrupted conversation.”

“Get a mentor couple. Whatever stage of life you’re in now, you know a couple at least one step ahead of you. Ask them to make a year-long commitment to mentor you once a month. Connect with their experience, get their perspective on where you are and where you’re going, and encourage them to keep you accountable for growth as a couple.”
