This is our second marriage. The first time around for me their wasn’t much planning, bought my dress from Burlington Coat Factory and don’t remember the shoes. I’ve been planning my upcoming wedding for the past year and a half. About 6 months we started taking the time to cut the off all electronics and talk about our expectations and keeping things exicting as they are now. How will you do things different this time?

We planned to TTC right away, and I came back from the honeymoon pregnant!

@aliciabw: We respect each other and communicate more. We make our decisions together for the good of life together…we take TIME to talk and even more time to LISTEN.

My FI and I agree (2nd for both of us) that while people can say all they like that “a marriage takes work,” it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t actually do it. You have to spend time together, go on date nights, make an effort to be intimate and sweet, and we’ve both consciously decided not to let life get us down. You know, not get complacent and lazy with each other. We know our relationship is too important and special than that. But, the primary difference this time around is that we are both putting our relationship first. I’ve heard the best gift you can give your kids (I have two; he has none) is to have a good marriage. While my marriage didn’t work out with the kids’ dad, they’re too young to remember when we were together and will primarily see this marriage as the one to look to. I want them to see us being affectionate (something my ex and I never were), see us taking time for each other, helping each other and putting each other before ourselves. Kids will always make your relationship take a backseat, but you have to make time and effort for each other, too!
