Hello, I recently celebrated my 12th wedding anniversary. It’s been an amazing journey with my lovely wife Tina, and so today I wanted to share some things I’ve learned along the way. I’m also going to do part 2 of things that I need to improve on later.
One thing I learned is that it’s important to spend time with each other. You got married for some reason so you should enjoy spending time with each other. As you know life with covid and a having a child spending alone time can be difficult at times. But we do try to make time here or there to spend together. It could be something simple as watching a show on TV together, going for a walk or, just going to bed at the same time. It’s those little things I believe are key in the relationship.
On the other hand, it’s important to spend time apart from each other. My wife and I are two unique individuals who like doing our things. I enjoy going to football games, riding my bike, exploring trying new stuff. My wife likes to stay home, watch her Hallmark movies and Family Feud, relax on the beach. We each have our unique gifts and we bring each of those gifts into the marriage to make it whole. It’s nice that way, so when we come back together we have something to talk about. Communication is important. It is something that I need to work on and that’s for another episode.
The third thing is to be appreciative of each other. Say thank you and even if it’s for something small like making the bed or folding the laundry. It’s those little things that go unnoticed that people tend to notice. It’s important to make sure your partner knows how appreciative you are of them.
So there are 3 marriage tips. I hope you got something out of this. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read it. Please like and subscribe, and you can follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Tiktok at 716dadadvice.
