Learning the secret to a strong marriage and love partnership
Building our mental health
Body & Soul has partnered with the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute to offer our readers practical methods and/or advice that foster mental wellness. This month Child and Family therapist Letitia Lister continues with advice on helping to build strong marriages and love partnerships.
Ms Lister suggests that husbands and wives find an older couple to mentor them.
“Look for an older couple whose marriage you admire. They may be a family member, attend your church, or work at your job,” she said.
“Either way, find out what helps to make their marriage work. In every area of our lives, it helps to have a mentor to guide us and inspire us, and your relationship is no different. If you are looking for longevity and happiness in your relationship, find an older couple who have been together and get their advice.”
Important caveat: Choose a couple who are still happy together.
