When you are engaged, planning the wedding and are newlyweds people give you many different snips of marriage advice. Things that you have heard over and over again like:
-Communication is key
-Make time for the two of you
And then there are some that are more of a rarity like:
-The time I said Ryan scraped ice off the windshield for me and my uncle says, “Don’t do things you can’t keep up forever.” Then, my other uncle makes some kind of sexual joke about “Yeah, if you can’t “keep it up.” ”
– Fight naked
– Use separate computers, separate checking accounts and separate bathrooms.
During our engagement we had people also tell us, “Never go to bed angry.” But then others would tell us, “Always sleep on it, then try to work it out.” I figured there were probably times for both and rolled with it. I think there has been times that I used both lines of advice. Sometimes it was something I felt like we needed to talk about that night. Yet, other times I knew it was better for me to sleep on it and think about how I was going to word how I was feeling.
Someone also told us to remember although we are becoming one unit in marriage we both still have our own needs and desires. It is ok to still remain individuals. Your spouse did fall in love with you for who you are! Although keep in mind change will happen.
Lastly, always tell your spouse that you love them and kiss them daily! I enjoy taking this piece of advice. Except when one of us are sick. Then, as you know we will go weeks without kissing each other- if need be!
What is your favorite marriage advice that you and your spouse received?
