I asked my husband what ingredients make a marriage great.  He gave me his thoughts and I share them here.  I agree that these are ingredients, a foundation, for a great marriage.  Here is what he said (all are of equal importance):

  1. Openness – being willing to share, try new things, and willing to listen
  2. Honesty/Integrity – being authentic, truthful, admit when you are wrong, be true to self, be true to one another, be true to the partnership
  3. Commitment – be willing to do whatever it takes, always think of the other first, appreciate each other to the fullest
  4. Honor – each other, the partnership, and what we stand for
  5. Choose to love – for connection, knowing each other, appreciating each other, being in love, and sharing time together
  6. Communication – knowing when to shut up, listen fully, open 2-way dialogue, listen to each other, truly hear each other, acknowledge each other, admit when wrong and be humble about it while saying sorry
  7. Faith – in each other, in our beliefs, in each other’s beliefs, in our choices, and in each other’s choices
  8. Support – stand by each other’s goals and dreams, be able to say the hard things when necessary, be each other’s cheerleader and best friend forever (BFF)

I felt this was a good representation of what men want and need in a marriage.  Women want these things too.  And that’s why these are 8 ingredients for a great marriage.

What do you think?
