So, the advice just keeps pouring in. Earlier this week, I posed a question, “What is the best marriage advice you’ve ever received?” And your responses have not disappointed. I posted a few of my favorites yesterday but there are just too many to put in one post so I’m creating a “Part II” and posting a few more here.
If you haven’t had a chance to share the best marital advice you’ve received, please make sure to join us on our Facebook Community to share it with us. We are all learning from each other and I, personally, learn so much from each of you daily.
So without further ado, here are some more gems of wisdom people deposited into your marriage and now I get to share it with the world.
“If you keep score, everyone loses.” -Submitted by R. Ralston
“Only give what you want to receive.” -Submitted by J. Smith
“People say a good marriage is 50 — 50. That is wrong. A good marriage is 100–100. Each one has to give it everything they have. You have to work on your marriage each and every day to keep it fresh and you have to want it to work to make it work.” -Submitted by S. Whisman
“Don’t neglect the power of these words: I’m sorry, will you please forgive me? Repentance is the open door to change.” -Submitted by D. Walter
“Never yell at each other unless there’s a fire.” -Submitted by M. Aguada
“To become best friends and do things together. The rest will fall into place, with no conditions:- the love, respect and most importantly trust…it can make or break any relationship.” -D. Hamlyn
“Spoil your spouse and not your children.” -Submitted by J. Weston
“Accept your spouse’s individuality. Do not make him/her someone he’s/she’s not. And do not compare.” -Submitted by N. Arcilla
“When you find yourself in an argument, stop and walk away; go pray and then come back to talk. It give you time to regroup and cool off and get your head straight. It also gives you time not to say anything that you can’t ever take back.” -Submitted by D. Lucas
“Live for the betterment of each other and let the world take care of itself.” -Submitted by T. Hunter
It was wonderful to see so much great advice pouring in and knowing the members of this club took the positive advice someone else gave them and applied it to their own marriage for success.
Join me tomorrow as I share tips from the Mauritius couple I traveled halfway around the world to interview. After more than 50 years of marriage, they still live by their own secrets to a happy marriage.
Until tomorrow…make it a great day!
