I was recently talking to a friend of mine who suggested that laughter is often a very good indicator of how well the marriage is going. When the silliness slows down, it may be because you are in a season of suffering, but it may also mean you've exited a season of peace and trust. The couple that laughs together lasts together. This insight got me thinking: what are some other questions that can help diagnose the health of our marital life? Here are ten that may prove useful.
1. Do you pray together?
This may be the hardest one, so I'll put it first. While I do know of good marriages where the husband and wife don't pray together nearly as much as they would like, I don't know any bad marriages where the husband and wife pray together all the time.
