When it’s right marriage can be a beautiful thing. But that doesn’t mean it’s challenge free. Even those that seem the happiest encounter their share of problems. It’s all the more reason to focus less on other couples and how green their grass must be and more on taking care of your own grass. There are times when we are facing a trial in our relationship and find ourselves searching for answers. We desire to fix the situation yet in the midst of it we struggle not to lose hope, become discouraged, or walk away feeling defeated. But sometimes a few words can be all that it takes to encourage your heart. Focus on them and your hope is seemingly restored and your desire to strengthen your union ever-present.

The reality is the hard times will come. You will get through them and life will very likely present you with another set of challenges. Be encouraged and take a look at 25 quotes to help encourage you during those tough times in your marriage:
