I don’t have any more love stories to share right now, but I thought I would share some tips on making YOUR love story last.
Making Your Love Story Last
These thoughts come from some of my friends on Facebook who have been married at least 20 yrs.
Tracey R—- My husband and I have been married 25 years. We met in high school on a blind date set up by my best friend (yes we are still friends). The one thing that helped us during our marriage is to talk and not yell. Also I let my husband be with his friends and he let me be with my friends. We never told each other we couldn’t do anything. Talking is the most important thing in a marriage. (I have seen/heard of so many marriages fall apart due to losing a child during their marriage, we lost our first born son and we didn’t let it tear us apart in fact we grew closer. Just knowing that we each was hurting because we both lost him not just me).
Troy Doretha T—- I would advise you to always put God first then totally be your spouse’s best friend. Don’t ever put your other friends before your spouse. Never go a day without saying “I love you”. Be prayerful and careful!
Making time as a couple/family to read the Bible and pray together is extremely important.
Even if the argument wasn’t settled like you want it to be, make sure that in your heart you have forgiven your spouse before going to bed.
Some of the blogs I follow offer great tips and ideas for marriage as well. The Thankful Homemaker shared 18 Ways to be Your Husbands Helper, I know I fail at close to half of them.
Graceful Momma shared this heart warming post about being A Kind Wife. She sent her hubby a list of things she felt she should be doing and asked him to put them in order according to importance. His response was not what she expected.
Becky at Beauty for Ashes shares 11 Ways to Flirt with your Man. Seriously, this is my favorite one!
I would love to hear how you are making your love story last, and don’t forget to come back tomorrow, when I am sharing the rest of Jason and I’s love story and you can link up yours!!!
