Maybe because our wedding is getting closer (81 days), I’ve been more inclined to shift from obsessing about wedding details (though I need to get a roll on addressing our invitations!) to thinking about marriage. I’ve always been one to listen to advice…I may not follow it, but I’ll listen.
So if you’re like me, then go on over here to read advice from folks who’ve been married 39, 38, and 41 years. Here’s my fave from this post:
Harry said that early in their marriage they had a lot of issues (because they were so young) and so they implemented a “Do Not Get Mad Session” once a month. During this session they talked about things that each one did not like about what the other person was saying or doing over the last month. If they started to get mad…they canceled the session and restarted it the next week. Harry says that this type of session allowed them to learn from each other and to recognize things that the other person did not like.
Maybe I’d change it to “Do Not Get Mad, But Please Be Nice”, lol! I could see it getting ugly. The Mister would be like, “don’t get mad, but I hate your hair, the way you cook, and all of your clothes.” I believe that would qualify for a cancellation, lol! But I like the concept.
