Today, my husband and I celebrate TEN years of marriage! I can’t hardly believe it, time sure has flown. We’ve had so many adventures together – 10 moves, 7 foreign countries visited, 1 dog, 2 kids, and 15 ballparks visited!
While we’re far from perfect and life is all about progress and becoming, I wanted to share a few things we’ve learned on having a happy marriage.
-Be the first to apologize and forgive. Don’t hold grudges or let grudges fester against your spouse, nothing good can come from it. Compromise.
-Give 100%, not just 50% even though you’re a partnership.
-Invest time in you as a couple – time with no distractions.
-Share the work load, work side by side and learn together.
-Find things you can do together – hobbies, exercising, vacations.
I am in no means perfect or even good at most of these but I know our efforts to create and maintain a strong marriage will pay off! I’ve loved the last 10 years travelling with Dave and becoming parents together.
Any good marriage or relationship tips?
