Getting Engaged…

Will you?

Will you?

 

 

   I want to take a moment and congratulate you on your engagement. It is a most exciting time in your life  . I want to share some great secrets  to marriage that I have learned in the past 9 years  . I wish someone would have do this for me. I want you to keep this  and refer back to it at least 2x a year. That way you don’t forget the things I am going to share with you.    OK  now that we got past all of that here we go.

 Getting engaged…

 

  • Remember it isn’t 50/50 on everything. It is 100/100 . That way you both know you are putting your all into everything you do. 
  • Make sure you speak and understand each other at all times. refer back to my post on The Key to a Strong Relationship is Speaking the Same Language
  • When you are talking and you loose your attention , Be honest instead of saying you heard everything.
  • Don’t play games in hoping they will guess what you are thinking.
  • If you have a need or a want , share that information. They will never find out on there own. 
  • Make sure you have the same goals for your family 
  • have a good understanding how you’ re going to raise your children , if you desire them.
  • Remember you both play for the same team.
  • Realize when you say I do , your immediate family connection has changed. It is no longer mommy or daddy that is your next in kin. 
  • always make sure you have your partners back no matter what. 

Just a litlle side note. Your not really married till you have kids. That is when the fun begins.

Top 10 Ways To Keep Your Marriage Strong

strong marriage

I have been married for 9 years this past May. It hasn’t always been a a walk in the park. When my husband and I said “I do”… we took that to heart. We had decided that no matter what we will do everything it takes to have a successful marriage. So about 4 years into out marriage we decided we are going to need some extra support in having a strong marriage. The “extra help” had given us some tools to use. I was able to pull together the

Top 10 Ways To Keep Your Marriage Strong

  1. Stay honest.
  2. Speak your mind when you are thinking it. If you wait to long your spouse might not understand where you are coming from.
  3. Be truthful, sometimes brutal honesty is the only type of honesty. The truth hurts, so it isn’t always easy.
  4. Stay friends- don’t forget why you got married to begin with.
  5. Spend quality time together. Go on a date once a week.
  6. Laugh together.
  7. Sit down every few months and re-evaluate your life goals. Make sure you are always on the same page. Support each others goals and dreams.
  8. Don’t compare your marriage to any other. Every relationship is different.
  9. Have sex regularly. That leaves no room for fighting over that!
  10. Be in love … Not just have love for each other.

We had caught slack for having a strong marriage. I had heard to many times that we all can’t be perfect like Dana & Chris. Well folks… perfect we are not. Truly committed ….we are.

Committed to each other. We knew we had to try everything before we walk away from a marriage that we put all of ourselves into. We also had 2 children that would be damaged for life if we didn’t at least try.

So here we are 5 years later and stronger than ever. Do we fight?…. I wouldn’t call it fighting anymore. It is more like debates. I couldn’t imagine at this point in my life wanting to share it with anybody else but Chris. We share the same goals in life. We both want a life of abundance. We support each other in all our dreams. We are powerful as a team. We are successful because we want to be!
