It’s my anniversary!!

At the beginning of next week, I’ll get back to regular content. But I wanted to take time to celebrate love and the things I’ve learned over the years. Be patient, I am halfway through.

Tip #6

Your Spouse Should Be Your Best Friend.

This is not rocket science, however, this is not something that always happens before marriage (I’m proof). However, if there is anyone you should have the greatest relationship with-it is your spouse. If you celebrate news first, disclose pitfalls and setbacks with anyone other than your spouse- You are wrong!!! As you should be the number one supporter for your spouse, he/she should be this for you as well.

When thinking of fun vacations, enjoying good dinners, movies and long talks with, who comes to mind? When you need to cry, who is the first person you will call? If there is something I wish someone would’ve told me, about marriage, it would’ve been: to always have a friendship inside your marriage. Some people won’t get that, I’ll try to break it down:

When you are dating, what is your aim? To get married, have kids? When you’re married, the goal is to stay married right? 😆 But nowhere in there is the goal of becoming and maintaining a good friendship. Ultimately the goal should be to become great friends first and marry your best friend. But if you’re backwards like me, ish doesn’t always happen that way! So while you are focusing on being a great wife or husband, also focus on being great friends. One of the things that has maintained my relationship, and others that I know, is that they just genuinely get along really well.
