This Is What Happens In Marriage And Family When You Serve Deeply

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 21:7

“to servant of rulers; kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship because of the Lord that is faithful.”

The prophets teach that the greatest cause of divorce is selfishness. Couples can cope with and endure many hardships. For example, some say that finances are a big cause of divorce. However, these challenges can strengthen the relationship and not weaken it.

Service Transforms Marriages

Two great ideas I have heard from experts in the marriage and therapy field are;

  1. Get in the practice of doing something every day that you don’t want to do.
  2. Every day ask your wife this question, “What is the one thing I could do for you today that would mean the most to you?”

Love is many things and it is certainly more than a feeling. For example, action is one of the most important elements of love and hardly anything speaks of love more for a wife than helping her in the kitchen and home. Additionally, for her quality one-on-one time in meaningful conversation is as important as breathing air or food and water.
