2) Discuss your relationship with God and ask Him for guidance and wisdom

3) Ask other mature Christians you know and that have been married for years for advice.

6) Reading general relationship advice and self help books can be useful, but often things will be a bit different when you get them from a biblical perspective. Therefor I invaluable to read some books written by other Christians to get the best advice.

7) Hang out with Christian friends and have Christian acquaintances. Christian acquaintances can offer you a third person's view that is in line with Christian values. Talking about your relationship issues and concerns with fellow Christians can be very useful.

10) Practice communicating effectively. Learn to truly listen to your partner and what she or he wants to tell you. Allow your partner to communicate her/his feelings without arguing or judging them, just pay attention and listen.

No matter if you have been married for years or are in a new relationship, the relationship can get complicated. We all have arguments in our relationship that needs to be dealt with to grow.
