Are you needing marriage advice? Where do you begin?
Do you need advice as to if you should get married? Are you ten years into your marriage, hoping it will get better, and need advice? Or is it the first year, the honeymoon is over, and you really need marriage tips now?
Or, is everything pretty good, but you want to make it better?
Hmmm. I guess I will be adding tips, ideas and advice as soon as I get it so you can try it out.
Should I, We, get Married?
Wow, nobody has a crystal ball to tell you whether you will, for sure, be happy and blissfully in love the rest of your breathing years together; through pregnancy, kids, teenagers, the loss of your parents, work, in-laws, but I can sure tell you that if you think so...you might be in for a surprise.
Regardless of who you marry, are You committed? Are you sure you're marrying your best friend? Because my marriage advice is that intimacy, money and laughs, won't get you through some of the tough things that can, and will, happen in life. You will need your best friend and there will be times that they need you. Are you committed to being there?
I once heard that the worst thing that divorce can do to the kids in the family, is send a message that, "You are replaceable."
Ouch. Screw up too long...and your replaceable. Who can relax and grow and get better if that is the message we send to each other, or have grown up with?
Make the commitment to marry your best friend. Then commit to whatever happens, divorce is not an option.
Wow. I hope I didn't scare you away from one of the most rewarding, challenging, and incredible things you will ever do in your life. I just want you to be very sober about your decision.
Here are two great marriage quotes I once heard (sources unknown);
"Marriage can either be the closest thing on earth to Heaven, or Hell."
"The grass isn't greener on your side. The grass isn't greener on the other side. The grass is greener where you water it."

Marriage Advice; A Simple Tips
I heard a lady say, "In marriage, 'Why' is for little kids."
Ever since, I have tried not to say such things to my husband as,
"Why are you late?"
"Why do you always...?"
"Why can't you...?"
Do you see how that is sounding? "Why" becomes 'Whiny'. Hmmm. Not very mature and quite a turn off to any spouse. Sometimes we have to say to our kids, "We don't speak Whinese."
Here's a good family quote, "Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife." (NIV Prov.21:9)
So, how do you ask any questions? What is easier on the ears of your best friend?
"I'm glad you're home. Will you let me know what was holding you up?"
"Wouldn't it be nice..."
"I was wondering if..."
And as always, it won't matter what you say if how you say it is not gentle, approachable and sincere. At least if I was on the receiving end of a whiny, mean, voice and threatening body language.
Our Best marriage advice is to have fun! Turn the seriousness and being 'right' or 'wrong' into a good memory, not an ever lasting fight. Most things that we look back on aren't worth the effort of sacrificing our marriages over.
