If you are Christians, belief in Jesus Christ as Savior, is NOT enough. What do you BELIEVE about marriage for example, parenting, God, money and life in general?

Tips for Total Success
1. Take time to get to know yourself and get clear about who you are and what your core values and beliefs are… Write them down….

3. Try to reconcile any differences. See whether you can “agree to disagree” on certain core values and beliefs without feeling personally compromised and making sure you can still love your partner unconditionally and accept them for who they are without trying to change them…
If you can do that joyfully and successfully, your relationship will thrive, if not it is headed for disaster… 🙂
