How many years have you been married, and what has being married taught you?
November will be 31 years. That marriage is a job you never get time off, sick leave or a vacation. Enjoy the wedding day because every day after that is work. What you put in your marriage is what you will get out of it. Love covers a multitude of sin! After 10yrs of me committing adultery and this man still loves me as Christ love the church… I drop the mic😙
What are 3 key ingredients that have helped you build a healthy marriage?
Love, respect and just being who God created me to be. Never lose yourself for a man. Be honest don’t lie to yourself or that man everything you do in the dark comes to the light remember that. Make sure you’re IN love with him and you don’t just love him like you love your family and best friend. When you’re IN love you can survive any storm.
What word of advice/wisdom do you have for the young wife?
Have lots of sex. This releases stress, unless your husband is crazy. Stop trying to live as if you’re still single, hanging out ALL the time with your old single friends. If you don’t have kids make sure your husband is uno #1. He should not have to be jealous for your time. You’re on the phone all day but can’t have a decent conversation other than “how was your day”… (Red flag). Your husband pays more attention than you think.
What about the singles? What word of advice can you share to help the single women, who desires to be married?
Like and love who you are first you can’t give away what you don’t have. Know “why” you want to be married because with God age ain’t nothing but a number. Let him find you PLEASE!!! Learn to be okay if God says marriage is not for you.
Anything else/advice/wisdom you feel led to share?
All the originals are taken, don’t be a copy cat. Stop looking at the grass on the other side, it needs to be worked on too. Seek God in all you do, don’t let Him be your last resource. When HE speaks, listen. I drop the mic😙
