 We were out with another couple on Saturday night and they asked us why we seem to have such a great marriage.  When dh and I got home we were listing all the things that we think has made our relationship great.  Here's our top 5, What are yours?

1.  We talk

2.  We trust

3.  We put each other first

4.  We balance each other out

5.  We have sex almost daily.

Pretty much the same as yours except #5. We def do not have sex daily. Maybe more like 1x weekly. Maybe. But we are good with that.

I would add respect for each other.

Our marriage wasn't always good, when I finally realized what an awesome man I have, my respect level went up and our marriage is much, much better.

We'll listen to the other's point of view. 

We've both lowered our standards (I mean compromised) on some things. 

We have our own identitities and do things we enjoy with other people. You can't make your partner enjoy doing something with you.

We comunicate

We do not keep secrets

we trust each other

we listen to each other

we practice conflict resolution which keeps us from getting mad and fighting

we respect each other

we recognize what we both bring to the table and our strengths and weaknesses and embrace them and dont expect the other to change.

We pray together and for each other and put God at the head of our household.

Among many other reasons....

for us, great sex isn't why we have a great marriage, it's a product of our marriage doing well.
