Our 1st Anniversary

Today is our first wedding anniversary, it just seems like yesterday we got married. I am just thankful to God for seeing us through this year and kept us alive to celebrate an anniversary. I am also thankful for the amazing bond we share, and by the special grace of God, it will continue till we grow old and grey






















Simple Notes for Marriage

1) Do not get married for the wrong reasons. For example,  due to pressure from family, society and fear of being alone. These are not the foundation you want your marriage to be built upon, you are more likely to end up with somebody you had no business with or find yourself in a marriage that will be shorter than the amount of months you spent preparing for the wedding.

2) Communication is key. I know it is a cliche, but It definitely works. When your communication is solid, a lot of problems can be avoided. 

3) The act of showing love. Never feel because you are married, there is no need to impress or surprise your partner. Instead this is the time you express it more. It will let your partner know how much you value and cherish them. It will keep the spark in your marriage and you will find out the little times you show it goes a long way as time goes by.

4) The right tone is a very necessary pattern to get inline with. Yelling at your partner is a no no and doesn't even help at the end of the day. It just makes the person yelling look crazy. We women are likely to fall in that line, but if you change your tone you find out he listens more than when your yelling. Ex: my husband and I have very respectable fights since the day we met. Regardless of what I want to get across to him or he wants to say to me, we have a simple tone and we both feel that respect from one another, its a mad gift we are very much grateful for.

5) Both of you holding on to the word is a beautiful foundation for your marriage. I do not need to say much because with God all things are possible. *snap*

These words are from personal experience and other older couples in our circle.
