How to Build a Solid Marriage – Advice from a Veteran

Reflections On 17 Years of Marriage by Jason K. Allen

From Pastor Ben:

A healthy marriage is vitally important. It impacts how we parent, disciple, and express the gospel.

I do a fair amount of premarital counseling for young couples. If I were to boil down the hours I spend with them to some key advice, it would look very similar to what Allen writes in this blog. Although it was written 4+ years ago, the wisdom that he shares from what he has learned during 17 years of marriage is worth more than its weight in gold. 

Read through Allen's learnings and take them to heart. They provide great instruction that can help lead to a stable and healthy marriage.

Allen writes: 

"While we are far, far from perfect, God has given us a wonderful marriage, filled with joy, laughter, and fulfillment. We can’t believe we’ve now been married 17 years. We can honestly say we feel closer, happier, and more blessed than ever before. These 17 reflections are the conduit and overflow of that blessing, and perhaps they’ll be to you as well."
