These were great!


What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Great tips!

Laura. Mio, Michigan

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

1. Talk to your spouse more kindly than you talk to anyone else in the world. Too often we speak the most harshly to those closest to us.
2. Remember that marriage is less about marrying the right person and more about becoming the right person.
3. Donít forget to laugh. Most couples spend the majority of their time talking logistics: whoís doing the grocery shopping, whoís calling the repairman, whoís picking up the kids. A relationship canít survive on logistics. Have a water fight instead.
4. She needs you to be her best friend. Everyday, talk to her and tell her what youíre thinking. Even if you donít think youíre thinking about anything. She needs to hear your heart.
5. He needs you to be his cheerleader. Let him know you believe he can take on the world.
6. Find ways to say ďI love youĒ that donít involve sex.
. When you dress up, make sure the main person youíre dressing up for is him. And put on lipstick.
8. Leave the toilet seat down.
9. Forgiving means not bringing that old infraction up every time you have a new fight. Let it go.
10. If itís not solved at 2:30 a.m., itís not going to be solved at 3:00 a.m. either. Go to sleep. You can deal with it tomorrow, assuming you even remember what the fight was about.
11. When youíre having an argument, listen to understand, donít listen to find loopholes so you can win. Marriage is either a win/win or a lose/lose. You canít win by beating someone else down.
12. Your kids come second, not first. Your marriage needs to be number one. Your spouse was there before the kids and will be there after the kids move out. Work on that relationship first.
13. If you havenít fully committed to your marriage, it wonít succeed. If youíre always testing your spouse, your spouse will always come up short. No one is perfect.
14. You will never drift together. People only ever drift apart. If you want to grow closer, you have to be intentional about it.
15. Let her cry. She needs to every now and then.
16. Donít bug him if he doesnít cry. Some men just donít show their feelings. Thatís why theyíre men.
17. Donít say everything thatís on your mind. More marriages would survive if more things went unsaid.
18. Let her be your every fantasy. Keep your eyeballs off everyone else.
19. Let him be your every fantasy. Keep your eyeballs off romance novels.
20. Donít think heís gross if he farts. Donít think sheís pathetic if she obsesses over paint colours. You married someone of the opposite gender. Thatís what life is about.
21. Donít run to your mom if your spouse does something you donít like. Youíre a unit now. Act like it.
22. Make one of your favourite topics of conversation how much you admire your spouse. Tell your kids. Tell your friends. And let your spouse hear.
23. Men would be ecstatic if women showed up naked and brought food. Most women need more than that. Men, make it your goal in life to figure her out. Woo her. Sheís worth it.
24. Say yes far more frequently than you say no.
