Your relationship with someone is the position you hold in respect of that person.

Your spouse is unique; That simply means, different from other people.

4. Be Courteous - 1 Pet. 3:8-9; Eph. 4:1-2.

Courtship does not end with marriage

Be humble minded, Use three phrases; "I’m sorry; Please forgive me; Thank you".

Keep wooing one another.

5. Spend time alone talking about each other’s strengths, not weaknesses - Prov. 18:14.

You came together because of your strengths, your weaknesses would not keep you together so don’t magnify them.
