BEST: It’s not always perfect but it is always worth it. (this is the condensed version of the speech my grandparents gave us) 

Worst: Let him sleep around because its better than being alone.

The best advice my DH and I received was to spend at least 10 minutes every day actually talking to each other…. not the “how was your day” “fine, yours?” talk, but talking about what we think about things or how we feel. It sounds cheesy, but it really keeps you closer together.

“You can be right, but wrong at the too of your voice” was one I read in a marriage book I love. It reminds me to speak softer and that I don’t always have to win.


and from that same book, Remember that you have a good intentioned spouse. deep down they don’t mean to hurt you, even if it happens sometimes. I’m married to a man with no true ill will and even when he comes across as unloving, his heart is still good. 

I think that’s huge, especially if he lashes out or hurts you, realizing that their desire is not to destroy you helps release your anger. 



The worst advice would probably be “don’t marry him because he works too hard”

somekne seriously tried to convince me that marrying a hard worker was a bad idea!! it’s one of the qualities I admire most in him, that I can trust he will do whatever it takes to make sure we are taken care of.
