Thump In The Morning

My wife Angel and I are celebrating 8 years of marriage, and I feel like I am the luckiest man alive.

Even though we celebrate our love all year, we still like to recognize and celebrate the day we became one.

It was said to me that marriage is not easy. But, I found it to be when we both put in the effort to understand each others’ love language. Communication is key, and you need to learn to pick your battles.

We often agree to disagree but always hear each other out. It’s not always peachy keen, but picking your battles makes things easier. I’ve learned that a woman doesn’t want you to just simply say you love her; she wants you to show her, protect her, validate her and comfort her.

As for men, all we require is respect. That’s our love language. We don’t care about flowers, cards and candy. We look forward to and appreciate respect. I don’t claim to know it all — nor am I a marriage counselor. I can only speak on what works for me and my household.

When you’re caught up in the excitement of your wedding, it can be hard to imagine that you and your spouse may not live happily ever after. But sharing your life with another person can be a challenge, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience with relationships.

Marriage takes work, commitment, and love. But there also needs to be mutual respect in order to achieve true happiness and success in a relationship.

A marriage based on love and respect doesn’t just happen. Both spouses have to do their part. Appreciate each other, your relationship, your family, and your lives together. Show gratitude when your partner cooks dinner, helps the kids with their homework, or does the grocery shopping. It may help to take a few minutes each evening to tell each other at least one thing you appreciate that day.

Marriage isn’t easy, but it’s the best adventure I’ve ever been on!
