Monday Marriage Tip #10 – Laugh Together, A LOT!

“One of the most important things,” she said, “is that when we got married, he was already good enough. I accepted him for who he was on that day. If he never changed a thing or got better in any sort of way, that was okay with me.” As I listened to these words in […]

Monday Marriage Tip #9 – Accept Him

“There’s something on the table for you downstairs”, he said this past Thursday morning, which was our third wedding anniversary. As I giddily went downstairs, knowing what it probably was, I also felt a little ashamed that I hadn’t done the first thing for him yet… There it was on the table, the sweetest little […]
