To commemorate the 18 great years since I married my college sweetheart, I took some time to think through 18 lessons that I’ve learnt about marriage in that time. Please vote for your top 3 and I promise to expound on them in a blog post soon! So… here goes…
- A great marriage consists of two good friends – everything else is hype
- A cord of three strands is not easily broken
- If one of us wins, we both lose
- You’ll never meet all your spouses needs!
- Marriage takes mutual sacrifice
- Divorce is not an option
- Our marriage is the means to an end
- We need a common approach to parenting
- We need a common approach to in-laws
- Takes a lot of time to get it right!
- If you can’t lend trust, don’t get married!
- Opposites attract! And soon attack 🙂
- These are the ‘good old days’
- If the grass is greener on the other side, water yours!
- Don’t be a ‘child centered’ marriage
- Absence makes the heart go wander
- Parenting is a team sport
- Schedule spontaneity!
