Keeping Your Marriage Strong | Married 23 Years/11 Kids)

I don’t think I’ve ever addressed marriage here on my channel before, but it’s something that we need to pay more attention to. In this day and age, marriage no longer carries the honor and commitment that it once did for many people. Far too many people believe that marriage is going to be much easier than it actually is. You have to be willing to make it work, but it is so worth it.

Here’s what I’ve learned in my 23 years of marriage (which was blessed with 11 kids!)

Author: Shelly Sangrey

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. Very well done! My husband and I have been married for 36 years. Met and married after 4 months. He was 19 and I was 17. No, I wasn’t pregnant. We were excited to marry and start our life together. We have 6 children (and 3 miscarriages.). My husband is a house painter in Florida and I a homeschooling housewife. I’m alot like you. Because we married so young, I had to learn that it wasn’t all about me, that I had to share in the responsibilities in our marriage (cooking, cleaning, etc). I certainly understand showing honor to him because of his self-sacrificing spirit. It makes me feel good to have his breakfast ready for him, making him good dinners and lovingly serving him in appreciation for his hard work for us. We’ve had our share of ups and downs but it has been beneficial in strengthening our marriage. I know that he is the head of the house and he has to answer for his headship and my respect is very helpful in achieving that purpose. I strive to TRY to be the wife of Proverbs, but fall short many times. Thank you for covering this because many women would think it beneath them to “serve” or “honor” their husbands. (Like some caveman thinking…) But, in a Godly way, it makes your heart happy!!
