SUMMARY

For so many married couples, the last time they truly worked together was during the planning of their wedding.

Imagine if the two of them put in the same effort in marriage, then marriages would thrive. 

This is usually done because the couple wants to put up an unforgettable show for the public as a celebration of love.

Unfortunately, many couples don't put in this same effort in making their marriage work because in marriage, there is no one to put a show for, it is just them two.

For so many married couples, the last time they truly worked together was during the planning of their wedding.

Imagine if the two of them put in the same effort in marriage, then marriages would thrive. Love is when you do well to each other and with each other even when the public is not watching.

Here are ten things that make weddings successful;

1. The man and woman have a joint vision.

2. The man and the woman set a time and date that both are comfortable with.

3. The man and the woman both give suggestions of how they want the wedding to be.

4. The tastes and preferences of both the man and the woman are considered.
