3 Keys to Unlock 10 Years of Marriage
Updated: Oct 22, 2019
I got married to a man I barely knew almost 10 years ago. Knowing that half of all marriages end in divorce, it is a great accomplishment to make it this long.
So how did I do it? I asked myself the same question.
Take a little journey with me as we explore 3 ways to survive 10 years of marriage.
#1 Why Did I Get Married?
Most people get married because they fell in love. Something magical happened when you two were together and in that moment you knew that you wanted to spend your life with him, recreate that moment and
remember why you got married!
This will help anchor your relationship.
#2 In Sickness & In Health
One of the most important things you can do to secure a relationship is take care of each other when you're sick! We all have fond memories of our parents taking care of us as a kid. In a marriage, we rely on our spouse! He wants you to be his momma when he's sick. Do it! Make him soup. Tuck him in. Tell him it's going to be okay! This let's him know that you are there for the good times and the bad; in sickness & in health.
Reference: the film "Just Wright", Common ended up with the girl who took care of him!
#3 Divorce is not an Option
When your house needs repairs, you don't sell it, you patch it up and keep it moving. Same goes for your marriage.
If you want to make it to that 10th wedding anniversary, you must repeat the affirmation that divorce is not an option. Both you and your husband must say it out-loud and reaffirm to each-other that you are committed to making it work!
But your foundation must be built on truth. Be true to who you are and accept him for who he is. Remember improvements can be made along the way.
