Best Wedding Advice Received Ever!!!


During our church's Couples Ministry meeting, one of the couples that have been married for over fifty years said to us, "don't feel bad if you don't get it right...everything gets better as the years goes by." And i thought this was the best advice Ever!!!

 I feel like as newlyweds and even before we got married, during premarital counselling, we had to have everything right! We had to be great communicators; on the same pages about finances, children, family and everything in between.  But hearing the following messages, about couples who've been married for decades, calmed by nerves about not being "perfect" in our new marriage.

We just need to give each other room to be with each other in God's presence.   We needed to allow each other to grow and develop as individuals and as a couple! We are lucky to be surrounded by many couples from our church that have been married for many many years! 

Another lady who has  been married for 57 YEARS told me, when she found out we just got married, to just enjoy being with each other because marriage is a good thing! After 57 YEARS, i am definitely listening to her.  It's cute because her and her husband kinda look alike!

It is truly refreshing to be surrounding by individuals that have been married for so long and so strongly believe in marriage!

  Here is to wishing all married couples many many years of marriage!!!!!!!!

What is the best wedding advice you have received since being married?

I like this advice! I agree, we felt like we had to have it all right before we got married. Most people we know where we live are not married and assume that we know everything about it, and have it figure out.... so not true.

I'm glad the couples who have been 'together forever' recognize that no one is perfect, and that we continue to grow with time. Very encouraging!

That was excellent advice because you aren't going to get it right at the beginning my gosh it takes time and years of it. And plus look at this way, your not in no hurry anyway, you in marriage till death do you part so there is no rushing enjoy it and enjoy it together...

I love this post! Especially this line: "We just need to give each other room to be with each other in God's presence. We needed to allow each other to grow and develop as individuals and as a couple!" - I'm not married yet, but I've learned when two people in a relationship allow God to be in involved in their lives...any and everything is possible. A relationship built on the foundation of God and good communication is ideal :) Thanks for sharing!
