How to Set and Keep a Realistic Marriage Goal in 2020

This post explains how to set and keep a realistic marriage goal. Click to find out the four tips Beth offers! #marriage #goal #realistic #inspiration #improvement #commitment #accountability #Bible #Scripture #wife #encouragement

The beginning of a new year is a prime time to not only reflect on personal goals but also a great time to go into the new year and create an even stronger marriage. 

But if you’re like me, by the time the end of January rolls around (or before), you’ve forgotten exactly what it was you set your focus on back when the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve. 

There are many reasons this often happens to our best-laid plans and intentions. And since it is so important to work on improving our marriages, I’d like to offer some ideas for what to avoid and what to do to improve the successfulness of this pursuit. 

In order to give you a clearer picture, I’ll share with you a resolution I’ve set in my own marriage . . . 

I hope you’ll head over to to read the rest of this post! Especially, if you’re looking to improve your and your spouse’s attitude in marriage! 😉

Btw, I’ll be back to my usual blogging schedule next week, with a new series called “Insight for 2020” that’s based, appropriately, on my one-word for 2020“INSIGHT.

All throughout this series and with each post, I will be providing FREE inventories that will help you gauge several key areas in your life and marriage. With those insights, I’ll also arm you with important steps you can take to improve your life and marriage in 2020! Consider this next series and the resources I’ll be providing to be like a free “marriage- and life-coaching” course that can help get your marriage back on track or enrich an already healthy marriage.


Whether it’s marriage related or not, what is one of your New Year’s resolutions/goals?


If you don’t set New Year’s resolutions, tell me why not! I’d love to know!

  1. These are good thoughts, Beth. I really need to remember that I need to pray about whatever goals I set, not just once, but every day. Your post has made me think about setting a goal in my marriage, and I will think and pray on it and see how God leads. Blessings to you! I’m your neighbor at #InspireMeMonday.


    1. Thank you, Gayl! I think that’s a wise thought and observation, my friend! And I do hope God leads you to try and set a marriage goal this year. If you do, let me know how it goes! Thanks for coming by to encourage!


  2. Oh yay, you’re back!

    This year’s marriage goals sounds like the perfect dinnertime conversation for this evening! Sure beats flipping on the news.

    Happy new year, friend …


    1. Oh yay, that you feel that way, Linda! 🙂 You make me smile, girlfriend! I do hope you and Tim find a goal that you both want to work in your marriage. Thanks so much for coming by and sharing your enthusiasm here! You’ve made my day!


  3. What a great post, Beth! We talk about setting goals and resolutions at the beginning of the year but rarely do we think about setting marriage goals. This is so important! Thanks for reminding us!

  4. Thanks for this post, Beth. I don’t think about marriage goals either but feel convicted on working on my marriage this year. I love your goal about greeting him with affection when he comes home. Happy New Year!
