“You’re on the same team and when you realize this you can have great success.” —Jamal and Natasha Miller

It’s easier to get married than it is to get a driver’s license.

So why do so many couples go into marriage without knowing themselves first.

Could you answer these questions before you were married:

  • Where do I seek happiness from?
  • What am I passionate about?
  • How do I react during a disagreement?
  • What is my level of commitment?
  • What would my friends say about me?

These questions have an impact on your marriage success. More and more there is this romanticized idea that marriage is the “end all, be all” and once you get married, everything will fall into place.

At that magical moment you’ll have it all together. You’ll be able to live out your life’s purpose, your life will have meaning, and from that point, it will all work out.

Unfortunately, these ideas turn marriage into an idol.

You have to be an individual with strong commitments to be someone who is marriage material.

You’ll have to be committed to growth, no matter what stage of marriage you are in to have success.

Most importantly be willing to continue to work on yourself as you  become the spouse that your spouse needs and desires.

In this interview you will learn:

  • The importance of your commitments to God, the church and your friends.
  • How to forgive and reconcile quickly.
  • Why having a shared vision for your marriage is a game changer.
  • The impact that working on you has on the strength of your marriage
