Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have endured countless hardships during their nearly 33 years of marriage. Marriage is hard, especially when raising 19 children.
Despite all of the trials that come with raising that many children, and enduring the heartbreaking scandals involving their son, Josh, the couple loves each other more today than when they met.
Like any relationship, the Duggars have constantly and consistently had to work on their marriage. According to People, the Duggars use these 5 tips to strengthen their marriage.
1) “Individually pursue a close relationship with Jesus. The closer we each get to God, the closer we each get to each other.”
2) “Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath, which means don’t let offenses build up, but apologize and make things right quickly.”
3) “Never say put downs or negative name calling, but instead praise each other with a grateful spirit.”
4) “Go out on regular dates and enjoy each other’s company.”
And for the 5th tip for having a strong marriage, the couple recommends that all couples read the book “His Needs, Her Needs” by Willard F. Harley.
