The Best Marriage Advice I Ever Received Was from My Parents.
Either through words or demonstration.
I feel blessed to be able to say this about my family, while dealt other challenges, my parents’ devotion toward one another was never in doubt when I was growing up.
However, there is no perfect formula for a happy and successful marriage.
I have been married for 21 years. My husband and I have been together for 26 years.
I have learned some things along the way from my own experience too.
In fact, I have learned some of my most powerful life lessons in the temple of my marriage.
For the record, I do not in any way claim to have all the answers.
Not by a long-shot!
My only goal is to share some thoughts and ideas that may be of service.
Ultimately a marriage can’t be fully evaluated until it’s over.
Perhaps that is why the “Til death do us part” is part of the marriage vows?
Some may refer to it as a marathon (as opposed to a sprint), but I feel it’s a shared pilgrimage.
This is true if you’re married for two years or two hundred.
It is always a journey with someone else, toward yourself.
