Recently I read a Tweet which read something along the lines of “I didn’t make a vow to God about my children, I made a vow to God about my husband.”
I thought yeah, this is so true!
Reading through God Chicks has encouraged me to dog-ear certain pages and blog about the things that stick out at me to share. I found this about a week ago about marriage which I enjoyed reading.
(Holly) Recently, I started talking to people who have been married longer than my 25 years. I am on a quest to gain knowledge.
I’ve learned a few years:
From a man married 44 years: Hold hands often.
From a woman married 32 years: Sometimes its better to keep quiet.
From a man married 31 years: Let her do most of the talking.
From a man married 42 years: Leave the house when she is hosting a wedding shower for a friend. Too much girl noise.
From a man married 33 years: Patience
From a woman married 30 years: Persevere through the hard times.
From a woman married 35 years: Decide that this is the man you want to grow old with, and do whatever it takes.
From a man woman married 36 years: Smile often.

So let me ask you “Marrieds”, what is the best advice you could give a girl who has been hitched for 7 months?
