In the summer of 2017, I made one of my boldest decisions yet. I committed myself in holy matrimony to the most beautiful woman I have ever known. My heart was happier than ever before. I couldn’t have been more sure. And yet, the Millennial inside of me was wondering what on earth I was doing. Here are some of the things I’ve learned six months into marriage as a Millennial. I think they’ll be helpful for others going into marriage as well.
I often write about the things married couples need to do to strengthen their relationship with each other. But this list is going to be a bit different. Sadly, most married couples arent doing everything on this list. Making these a priority could have a massive impact, especially for couples who have children.
Have you ever wondered what’s the most important shape in marriage? Probably not before you read the sentence above.
When I ask people what it takes to have a great marriage, they mostly say one of two things: hard work or good communication. The problem with hard work is that most people work hard at work, and when they get home, they don’t want to work anymore.
