When you are grateful for what you have, it naturally follows that you will be more content and happier. And when you are content and happy, it is much easier to be loving and patient with your spouse. So it stands to reason that having an attitude of gratitude makes marriage go more smoothly. Of course, life is never perfect and there will always be challenges and difficult times in any marriage. But if you can approach your relationship with a sense of gratitude, it will help you weather the tough times and appreciate the good times all the more.
