Are Great Marriages Contagious?
Have you ever looked at a happy, well-adjusted couple and thought to yourself, “Gee, I wish I had what they have?” Well, the good news is, you can!
Studies have shown that great marriages are contagious. So, if you want a great marriage, surround yourself with couples who have one.
Think about it like this: if you want to be healthy and fit, would you hang out with friends who eat junk food all day? Probably not.
You would likely gravitate towards friends who live healthy lifestyles and make fitness a priority. The same principle applies to marriage.
If you want to have a great marriage, it’s important to surround yourself with other couples who have great marriages.
Spending time with these couples will allow you to learn from their example and pick up some helpful tips and tricks along the way.
Additionally, being around happy couples will help foster a positive outlook on marriage in general, which can only benefit your relationship.
Of course, it’s not enough to just surround yourself with other couples – you also need to be intentional about growing your own relationship.
After all, even the healthiest of marriages require work and effort to maintain.
Fortunately, there are plenty of resources available to help married couples grow closer together.
Whether it’s attending a marriage retreat or simply making date night a priority, there are many ways to strengthen your bond with your spouse.
The Bible reminds us in Proverbs 27:17 that “iron sharpens iron”, so it stands to reason that being around other couples who have strong marriages can only benefit your marriage.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your marriage, look no further than your social circle.
Surrounding yourself with other couples who have great marriages can help improve your relationship in both big and small ways.
Additionally, be sure to put in the effort required to maintain a healthy marriage – your spouse (and your future self) will thank you for it!
