What We Did to Strengthen Our Marriage

“What We Did to Strengthen Our Marriage,” Ensign, Jan. 2001, 64–67

What We Did to Strengthen Our Marriage

Members tell how they have used gospel principles to solve problems in marriage and build stronger bonds.

Let’s Talk about It

Most Ensign articles can be used for family home evening discussions. The following questions are for that purpose or for personal reflection:

  1. Do I think more often about whether I am owed an apology or whether I owe one? Is it harder for me to say “I’m sorry” than it should be?

  2. Do I worry too much about what I am getting out of my marriage and not how we are building for eternity?

  3. What are some of the qualities I admire most about my spouse, and how can I help him or her build on them?
