Working the Marriage, keeping the peace


Life is rough at times.  I’ve learned that in my short 6 years of marriage, the the marriage part takes a bunch of work and thought (and a ton of work on my jealousy issues).  I found this nice list on Bethany’s Blog  It’s a great list, I made a copy to hang on the fridge and put on my bathroom mirror.

20 simple rules

  1. Make Your Spouse a Priority
  2. Accept Differences
  3. Listen Carefully
  4. Compliment Daily
  5. Work Together as a Team
