- Wedding: April 2013
I love these kinds of topics and find them so helpful to refocus me!
We are 5 weeks out from our wedding and March is just WEDDING BONANZA month, which is super fun and I’m really looking forward to it.
However, I wanted to do something to also try and focus on the marriage. Fiance and I did professional pre-marital counseling (which was great), took Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University together, and I read a John Gottman book in preparation at the beginning of our engagement 7 months ago. So, we’ve done quite a bit. But that has been awhile now. I want to commit myself to continual renewal and work on the marriage.
Last night I bought the book Love and Respect, which comes highly recommended from lots of people, and started reading it. I’m going to try and read it all throughout the month of March and implement its suggestions, in preparation for marriage.
I also read this great article, so perfect for those of us at the beginning of marriages – Ben Affleck’s Marriage comments at the Oscars and what it can remind us
What are you doing throughout wedding planning to prep for the marriage?
