We had our first counseling session with the pastor this past weekend. He brought up some good points and gave us some things to think about…including: homework =) But this is the good kind and I think it will be rather useful down the road. He wants us to write a mission statement for our marriage. Basically, what we want our marriage to be, represent, and how we want other people to think of us as a couple.
I had never thought much about this and thought it would be nice to actually have it down on paper.
So…what is your mission statement as a couple?

@eyegirl: Our mission statement is this,
I will cook him dinner, try not to be sarcastic about his beliefs, and never sleep on the couch- even when I’m mad enough to punch the wall. Also, I will attempt to refrain from ‘calling him out’ in front of other people. Unless he’s just begging for it. I will keep from nagging him about helping around the house, and he won’t say that he brings home the bacon. He will in turn, never ask me ‘When is dinner?’. He will try to let me rant when I need it, without saying how I feel is stupid, or telling me to get over it. He will respect my beliefs by not allowing his family to take our daughter to church, or give her religious literature, until we decide she is old enough for it.
We will both keep from using the ‘D’ word, and stay faithful.
