Successful, lasting marriages need an established framework to flourish. Like any plant or flower, the roots you establish in the early stages of your life together need to be strong – and the soil must be nutrient-rich – in order for the flower to grow and bloom. Strong roots without a nutrient-rich soil won’t stay strong in the long run.
When two people join their lives together, conflicts will naturally arise – sometimes over small things and sometimes more important things. How you learn to handle conflict resolution on the small things and begin practicing it early on can greatly impact your ability to confidently handle the big things when they inevitably arise. Starting your marriage with healthy communication and practicing it every day is undoubtedly one of the most important things any couple can do.
