Happy Marriage: 20 Secrets of Happy Christian Home

Happy marriage for Christian couples is not free of challenge but the beauty of agape love is the string that pulls the joy for the couples.

It is a serious concern to me to minister the helpful steps to take for Christian couples to enjoy a happy marriage because countries keeping marriage statistics shows a red alert. Some youths are scared of marriage due to the fear of sad experience.

For instance, the Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey recorded decline in the U.S. divorce rate during the 21st Century.

“In 2000, 4.0 out of every 1,000 Americans got divorced. By 2017, the divorce rate had dropped to 2.9 per 1,000 people.

The decline in divorce rate is no doubt tied to the decrease in the marriage rate. In 2000, 8.2 Americans were married for every 1,000 people. By 2017, only 6.9 Americans for every 1,000 people were married.”
