In marriage, you go through different seasons and stages. I refer to them as The 7 Rings of Marriage™. My wife and I have worn all 7 rings. And all of them aren’t pretty, some are down right ugly, nasty, and just difficult. But this season, this “ring of marriage” that we are wearing now is one of the best. Without a doubt, I can say (loudly) that I am a happy husband!
Our honeymoon wasn’t the greatest. Shoot, I don’t think my wife even considers it a honeymoon. A honeymoon to her is somewhere warm, near water, or on a beach. I agree!
That wasn’t the description of our honeymoon. So, when my friends at BMWK announced the 2014 BMWK Marriage Cruise and Seminar at Sea I couldn’t wait to talk to her about it!
Do you love your spouse? How does your spouse know you love them? Maybe you tell them every day. Maybe every time you go separate ways your last words are “I love you.” And you probably do love them and vice versa. What if the words you say, don’t necessarily spell love for your spouse?
I recently wrote a post about what happens when you love your work. Great things happen when you love what you do, and use it to help other people. I shared with my Facebook friends and followers yesterday that I had an exciting announcement coming today. The post ended with a clue, this quote…
I’ve written about the term ‘domestic sexy‘ before. Well, thanks to a referral from a friend of mine, I’m hoping more people begin to hear about. Perhaps you will even hear a ‘King of Comedy’ use it on a TV show this season.
Okay, I have to start off by being transparent. When I first heard the term “domestic sexy“, my mind immediately went to my wife dressed in a French maid outfit cleaning the house, and…you fill in the blank. I know, I know, I should be ashamed! (I said I was starting off transparent!)
You spend more time with your spouse than anybody else. So you should know him/her inside and out. If you were on the newlywed game you would win, every time!
After playing and witnessing my share of at-home newlywed games, I know it is not that easy. The newlywed game brings plenty of fun and laughter. But it is a humbling reality check of how well you know your spouse.
My wife and my desire is to spend time together. But not just time, quality time. It is the quest of all relationships. To spend time together, and to make it worthwhile, to make it memorable.
We went on dates, but not as often as we’d like. There was something missing on our dates though. Our dates weren’t all that great. Now, since we’ve been dating more regularly, I understand. I know what was missing. I know how to get the quality time we desire. If you are in the same boat, what I learned can help you too.
Does your wife think of herself lower than she really is? Do you find yourself trying to convince her she is beautiful? You may not be the only one, as this is more common than it seems.
Today I have been married to my beautiful wife for 11 years. It amazes me to think that 11 years ago on this day, we made a lifelong commitment to one another and to God. What also amazes me is that we have know each other more than half our lives, we met over 19 years ago, and she still decided to marry me! 🙂
