With 5 years of marriage under my belt now… I thought it would be a good idea to start sharing a few little tips that learned along the way. To all my brides and brides to be out there I hope this is helpful! And if there is anything you’d like to hear more on please let me know for the future.
One of the biggest concepts after marriage I wanted to know more about (because I hate feeling ignorant… which is another conversation for a another time ;) is:
How to be a Good Spouse.
There were books, bible verses, and advice coming at me from all directions. Nothing quite suited me.
What I’ve come to realize is that being a good spouse isn’t one size fits all. It comes from being the best you that you can be. Sometimes that means giving up what you want. Sometimes that means sticking to your guns to follow your gut.
Above all put your marriage first. Treat your marriage as you would a child that you want to grow healthy and strong.
A child cant always make its own decisions. Sometimes you need to make decisions for a child. And sometimes you need to trust the decisions of others. But the most important thing is to find the best for your marriage.
