Last night, Lamar and I had dinner with two other couples because we were celebrating the birthday of one of the wives. It’s nice to spend time with other couples, talking about current events and about marriage.

One of the couples said something last night that stuck out in my mind.  They said they were saddened by the fact that another couple that they knew was getting a divorce. The news of the divorce shocked them.  And I could tell that our friends wished that they could have done more for this other couple before they got to the point of calling it quits.

This conversation got me to thinking. Are we doing enough to support each other in our marriages?  Do you really know how your friends’ marriages are going?

Have you ever had a friend shock you with the news that they are about to get divorced?  And you just sat there and scratched your head and thought…I never would have guessed.

With marriages failing all around us, and with so much negativity out there (especially in the media) as it pertains to marriages, having the support of other couples can be just what a couple needs in order to make it through the rough times.

Here are 8 ways we can support each other’s marriages:

8 Ways We Can Support Each Other’s Marriages

Be A Positive Example

One of the best ways that you can support another couple is to be an example of a loving, respectful, and supportive couple for them.  Believe it or not, people are watching you and your marriage and they are taking notes.  Lamar and I meet people all of  the time that say they don't want to get married because they have never seen any marriages at all or they have never seen any marriages that work.  Just by being a good example, you can inspire someone to want to be  happily married one day. Photo Credit: Mat Hayward
