Making OUR Marriage Work

Yesterday, my sweet Alex shared his opinion on what it takes to make a marriage work.

Today, I’m going to share mine.

McDaddy and I in NO way have a perfect marriage.


We have a great one.

And it’s a great one that I am so thankful for.

I have a good husband. He is the kind of man that does the right thing even when no one is watching. Why he married me I will never know because I am not easy to live with. But I am thankful that he picked me.

Here’s how we make our marriage work…

  • Fill his car up when it’s on empty. Even when it’s freezing outside.
  • Talk often about finances, child rearing, and problems.
  • Do what it takes to agree on finances.
  • Leave notes in his luggage before he leaves on a business trip.
  • Make his favorite sweet treat (chocolate chip cookies) just because.
  • Dance to your wedding song.
  • Send him a suggestive text.
  • Have a date night.
  • Go to church together.
  • Share dreams.
  • Hold hands.
  • Learn how to bite your tongue.
  • Learn when to bite your tongue.
  • Watch your wedding video.
  • Take a weekend trip together.
  • Send an e-mail just to say “you’re thinking about him”
  • Thank him for working hard.
  • Rub his back when he least expects it.
  • Forgive. Even when you don’t want to.
  • Serve his dinner.
  • Laugh together.
  • Whisper sweet nothings in his ear. In public.
  • Surprise him!
  • Go where he wants to go for dinner.
  • Plan a special anniversary trip.
  • Be interested in his interests.
  • Kiss him.
  • Pack a lunch and have a picnic. Have one indoors if it’s too cold.
  • Cuddle.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Valentine!
