Affirmation: My marriage is worth the work.

Marriage is the sweetest institution ever created when it is lived in peace and harmony. To build an unbreakable bond takes effort on the part of both spouses. I am willing to work on my marriage because my marriage is worth the work.


Finding a mate is the easy part; staying together is what takes effort. Anything worth having has a cost attached to it, and I am willing to pay the price. The recipe for a happy marriage is made up of unselfish partners willing to work together.

To get along with my spouse, I must learn to communicate with them in a way that they understand. I have to study my spouse and figure out how to meet their needs.

I am willing to give up my will for the benefit of my marriage. When faced with the option of being right or being happy, I choose to be happily at peace with my mate rather than winning a fight.

I promised my spouse to be there in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer. Life is not a downhill slope; it is a progression of hills and valleys. If I work hard enough through the hard times, I get to enjoy the happy times.

Anyone can give up and escape hardships, but I am better than that. My vows mean more to me than pretty words spoken like poetry at a ceremony. My vows are an unbreakable covenant I made with my spouse.

Today, I embrace my responsibility to give my all to making my marriage work. When I leave selfishness behind, I reap the benefits of a joyful marriage.
