Today makes it 29 years mummy and daddy said I do and apart from the mushiness I have always seen between them since I was a little girl, I have come to learn many beautiful lessons from their marriage. I mean, 29 years no be beans and what makes it sweet is that mainly because of their marriage, I have always looked forward to having my home and of course, the sweetness of my marriage will be greater than theirs😁😁😁😁
One of the most important things I have learnt is that it takes two to tango.
I will never say who should work more or commit more or less in a marriage for it to be beautiful but that two people realize that they each have parts to play to make their home a beautiful one and each person takes it like it depends on only him or her. As they compounded, I’ll share the five steps to a successful marriage.
N.B: They are not limited to these five.
Steps is spelt as S T E P S
One thing my parents always fought for and I always know I’ll ensure in my marriage is that We must always stay together. As much as we can avoid it, married folks should avoid staying apart. It’s not good for the health of any marriage.
Talk in this sense means communication. The importance of this cannot be over emphasized in any relationship, let alone a marriage relationship. Humans cannot read other humans’ mind we can only let our spouses know how we feel if we tell them about it. Write it, sing it, put it into poetry. Whichever way, just let the person know it.
This too is very important for any marriage. My aunt used to say the road to a man’s heart is his stomach. I don’t totally agree with that line of thought but then, so much can happen over a plate of food. My family is one that more times than I can remember, we’ve had dinner in the kitchen. I mean everybody o. Ho much more between husband and wife.
As my dad always says, A family that prays together, stays together. Especially for us as children of God, Our weapons of warfare are not carnal and the importance of prayer in our lives as children of God cannot be over emphasized. We must pray, pray, and keep praying. Submitting our will to God is very important because that’s the only way we’ll raise families the way God want us to.
Also, playing together is maybe not as important as praying but is also very important. Life is good. Smile and be happy.
I know there’s so much pressure on parents, especially men, to provide for the family. If you aren’t careful you’ll spend your life making money you’ll end up not enjoying. Especially for husbands and wives. Learn to play. Learn to be ticklish(lol….. I really don;t mean this one). Learn to laugh loud and long.
Say to your spouse, I love You
I can’t say this enough but I hope you get it.
My husband will hear this thing tire ehn. We’ll say it in the morning, afternoon and in the night. Most importantly, don’t just say it. Show it with your action.
Yeah I spelt it. S T E P S
I could add one more and say bathing together is good. Bathroom times are really precious,
N.B: I am not yet married but very soon I will be and Mehn! I tell you it’s going to be really sweeeeeeeeeet like steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew
