In any marriage, there will be bumps — sometimes lots of them! — but marriages that last a lifetime know how to overcome them. Here are 3 keys to a happy marriage.

1) Put God first! God will help you love — and forgive! — even when you don't always feel like it. Hollywood has lied to us that love is a feeling based largely on appearance. What do you do when the feelings aren't as strong, or when our appearance isn't so great, or when something goes wrong? Turn to God and ask Him to help you!

2) Think every day of something good about your spouse. We tend by nature to be selfish and somewhat critical, so if we don't watch it we can start focusing on our positives and our spouse's negatives. Be humble about your own shortcomings — and praise and focus on your spouse's good points — and that will help you have a happy marriage.

3) Prefer each other in love. Say, "let's do things your way" rather than "let's do things my way." You don't have to be a doormat, but if you focus on what your spouse wants and try to please them (within reason) it will break the logjam of selfishness which we are all prone to.

You can have a happy marriage! Start with God — move on to humility — and act in love and it will go a long way.
