Building Healthy Relationships

Fr. Mike Schmitz

Fr. Mike shares three things that will help you build healthy relationships.

If a couple wants to get married, that’s something we should celebrate. However, that doesn’t mean we should blindly encourage them no matter what, and offer cliche advice like, “You’re in love, and that’s all that matters,” or “Do what you heart tells you.” No matter how convincing a couple’s love for each other seems, there are some things that always need to be considered, especially in young relationships between two people who want to rush into marriage.

When it comes to relationships, there are three things Fr. Mike says to keep in mind:

  1. There are some things only time can reveal
  2. Let your relationship be the actual age it is
  3. Learn how to make decisions together
