Some Friendly Advice
I get lots of advice these days. Everyone has something that I “should know”…some little trick to a happy marriage. Some of these people I wouldn’t take a movie recommendation from, and some are actually rather insighful.
My favorites so far;
Keep a slush fund. (For real, I was told this…not sure that this is a good idea.)
Make sure you don’t keep secrets.
Do things apart for yourself and together for your marriage. (*THAT one I liked)
Never spend more than a certain amount you determine together without telling each other.
And this one, I loved…forget the word divorce exists. Put it out of your head. No matter what happens, you have to believe that you are going to work it out and that there isn’t any other option but to do so. If you can’t do that, don’t get married.
And since I’m now open to it…any other things I should know?
