Marriage Advice

You may be thinking something along the lines of: "Kalyn, you just got married. How can you be the right person to share marriage advice?"  While it's true I'm only a little over six months in to my marriage, I do have some great advice to share with you - but it isn't mine!

We had our friends and family share little tidbits, words of wisdom, and advice at our wedding reception. They shared it on little cards, which we kept and read together when we got back from our honeymoon. Helene shared something similar last week, so I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorites from our wedding.

+ Never forget why you fell in love with each other

+ "I'm sorry" will be one of the most important things to say in your life.

+ Love each other more today than you did yesterday

+ The key to a long marriage is: never run out of forgiveness and put God first in your life.

+ In tough times, remember how happy you are today - your wedding day!

+ The secret to a long marriage is to decide tnot to get a divorce. (From a lovely couple who has been married 59 years)

+ Don't blow all your money.

+ Always put God first.

+ When angry: KEEP MOUTH SHUT! Words spoken in anger can never be taken back

+ Have fun daily, pray about everything.

Some of the cards make me laugh, some of them are serious, and some of them can't help but bring a smile to my face. My goal is to have them displayed in our home one day, but until I can find a fun/pretty way to do so, I'll just keep them in their little box and share them with you all here.
Do you have any unsolicited marriage advice?

I love all the different pieces of advice ppl gave us when we got married. Some where really funny and I knew there had to be a story behind it. Congrats!

The advice about words said when you are angry is so crucial. I am trying to become someone who can stay quiet in the moments of anger and let myself compose what I really want to say when I've calmed down a bit. I'm so the person who says thing a I don't mean when I'm angry and those mean words always stay with someone for much longer than the argument lasts!

Great advice! I had something similar at one of my bridal shows +2 years ago! Monday was my 2nd anniversary and I've learned two important things thus far:
1) Pick your battles wisely. Honestly, it might not be that important to fight about.
2) Honesty and respect are your cement. If either of those two things don't exist you've got a very unsteady foundation!
