Today, we our celebrating our three year wedding anniversary. I’m sharing three marriage tips that we definitely try to incorporate into our marriage as often as possible.
Setting time aside to enjoy a date night or quality time is extremely important. At one point my wife and I were going on weekly date nights. While that is not possible for everyone, setting time aside whenever possible helps to reconnect. I love those moments when my wife and I sit down and just talk. We get to talk about anything that might be weighing down on us, catch up or just laugh and be silly. This time also doesn’t have to be going out on the town. If you have kiddos, put them to sleep early and a enjoy a movie night in or make dinner together.
Support each others Goals/Passions
I remember when my wife was thinking of leaving her old job of 5 + years. She was super nervous. It wasn’t just her she had to think of, it was us. But I tried as much as I could to encourage her to do whatever was going to make her happy. Now, with my blog and Instagram, my wife has been nothing but supportive. She’s my biggest cheerleader, my confidant and my photographer (she gets on me for not giving her photo cred, so here it is)! I can’t thank her enough for understanding and being there for me ☺
Above all communication and respect are KEY. So many things can easily be resolved if we just talk about it. But it’s not that easy. Sometimes, it’s like pulling teeth. We’ve had those arguments that make me feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Those arguments really test a relationship. I definitely try to calm down, breathe and try to be mindful of how and what I am saying. I never want to disrespect my spouse. That’s something that is super important to me. Respect; never calling each other out of our names or being so hurtful to the point of no return.
We have been together 6 years and married for three. Time flies when you’re having fun! We have definitely grown so much over the years. And I know she was sent to me. I wouldn’t want to experience life with anyone else.
If you are married and have any advice, please feel free to share it. If you’re not married but maybe are heading in that direction, I hope this helps or let me know if you have any questions. Choosing to make someone your family can be hard but when you find the right person, every moment is worth it.
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person”
To my wife: If I do not tell you how much I love you enough, please know that I truly love you. Thank you for everything you do for us. Cheers to three and many more to come, God willing.
