Getting to 20 Years of Marriage – Marriage is the ultimate commitment in life. Two individuals come together, pledge to take care of one another and then become a couple. Forever. Well, that’s the plan at the time of the wedding right? I know it does not work out the same for everyone, but for my wife and I, marriage is something we now have 20 years of experience with.
In ‘PPP88: 10 Things That Got Us to 20 Years of Marriage’, I shared a combined list of 5 things from my wife and 5 things from me that we feel can help others make progress in their marriage. In addition to the 10 things listed below *spoiler alert*, I provide my wife and my perspective on why these things have mattered to us and how others can consider applying the mindset, professionals and perspective that we’ve learned after a couple of decades together.
Our 10 things:
- Talking it out
- Seek outside help
- Have your own purpose or outlet
- Continue to be yourself
- Know when to shut up
- Fix your own sh&% first
- Don’t put on airs
- Do things together
