10 Thoughts on Marriage

I’ve been married for just under 4 years now and I’ve been with my husband for 9. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time has gone! We’ve learned a lot, done a lot, and been through a lot already. Today I’m popping in to share 10 thoughts on marriage. I’m so thankful for the man that I have by my side every day. I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments below! 

10 Thoughts on Marriage:

  1. I love sharing my life with my best friend.
  2. Be quick to forgive and even quicker to apologize.
  3. Don’t obsess over the small stuff.
  4. I will always think of my husband to when making any decision…no matter how small.
  5. Make time for each other daily, even if it’s just time together on the couch.
  6. Hug often. Laugh often. Talk often.
  7. Remember neither of you are perfect. Hear each other out and talk things through.
  8. Small acts of love go a long way on a daily basis.
  9. Love is a choice that you make every day. 
  10. It’s something to continue to work on as your lives grow and change in different phases of life.

  1. Adore this! Some of my favorite posts are about you and your husband (I even used some of your “ways to love your husband” recently!)

    Being with Ray now 12-ish years, but married for less than 3 months, we have a unique perspective. But I’d say that respecting and appreciating our differences has been and will be key. And talking through things that bother you to make sure that they don’t fester.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wonderful tips to take note of, as I’ve been with my boyfriend for 6 years and we’re planning on spending the rest of our lives together. 🙂 I especially love number 8, it’s the little things that add up! Definitely sharing these with him!

    • Thank you, Marina! It’s a wonderful feeling to know you are with that person. I knew I wanted to marry my husband in high school and he knew it too. Enjoy! Those little acts of love are so important!

  3. These are all great tips! I like number 10 because I know before we were together, I didn’t realize how much work it actually takes. The best piece of advice I have ever received was from a woman who had been married for 55 years. She said to learn to give up control. She explained that it doesn’t mean you don’t have a voice anymore but it sure does prevent a lot of arguments. I realized that we butt heads because we both try to take care of everything. It was good advice for me!
