Marriage Tips

Marriage

I'm definitely not the best at marriage nor have I had years upon years of experience; I've learned a few things though while being married to Andrew for 14 years...

| It's not worth it to stay mad |
Life is precious and filled with precious moments - When you start playing the silent treatment and giving the cold shoulder, you're letting a situation steal precious time. 

| Stay sexy |
Don't get me wrong, there's a certain level of comfort zone that comes with being married and that's okay. It's part of a joy of being married; however don't let it take over. If your husband has to beg you to shave your legs every time before you have sex, or if he has to beg for some sexy "comfortable clothes" - that should be a "check engine soon" light...just a simple little warning to get back with it. 
I mean, come on ladies, we all know when you were dating him that even your worst look was a cute worse look. 

| Encourage one another |
It's easy to get in the groove of life and go about your daily business, but I will never forget the day my husband asked me to hold him and tell him he was doing a good job. This was about 1.5 years after we said "I do" and I felt horrible after he said it. 
Don't let it get to that point. 
Whether its encouraging each other in your job, or being a good spouse or parent- let them know they're doing well. 

| Talk | 
Late night talks...random phone calls during the day...getting up a little early and having a cup of coffee together...
You can really see a persons heart when communication is there. 
Plus, this keeps the friendship aspect alive in the relationship.

  2. I've been married for almost 20 years, and agree with most of your list. Marriage is different for everyone - something to keep in-mind.

  3. Having zero experience, I love your realness. One of these days, some lucky man will be forever indebted to blogs like this. Haha!

  4. These are all such great words of wisdom. Marriage is a commitment that doesn't stop with a ring, wedding and saying "I do." You have to work at it to make it work.

  5. Beautifully written post. I think some people get so worked up about the wedding that they forget about the marriage. You have to work together to stay together.

  6. Marriage takes a lot of work and effort but it's also very rewarding. These little things add up and makes your marriage so much better. With everything else, the most important part is communication.

  7. I think just being able to talk about these things with your partner helps a lot. Communication is always so helpful.

  8. When the end of the day comes when it is time to say your final goodbyes, you will always wish for more time and regret the times you wasted being mad....if you get mad, get over it...don't wear it like a badge of honor....
