Keys to a Successful Marriage (Season 3 Episode 25)

This week on the Straight Truth Podcast, the best Christian podcast on the web, we answer the question: What are the Keys to a Successful Marriage?

How can I have a strong, successful marriage and family life? A healthy marriage wasn’t modeled for me growing up. What are the secrets to a happy marriage? Are there essentials that I must do to have a good and lasting marriage? 

In this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, Dr. Richard Caldwell and special guest Dr. Nicolas Ellen talk to us about how a good marriage begins with our choices, including the person we choose to marry. They will help us see the dangers of focusing on the fear, pain, and problems of bad marriage examples we’ve seen or experienced. And they will remind us that the standard of good is not ourselves or our parents’ marriage, but that it’s the Bible that puts forth the standard. They will explain how building our lives on Christ and the truths of Scripture is the key to successful lives, marriages, and families.

But what if I’m not married yet? What are some guidelines for choosing a spouse? How can we make our love last? These questions and more are addressed in this episode of the Straight Truth Podcast, as Dr. Richard Caldwell and Dr. Nicolas Ellen take us to God’s Word.
