What We Have Been Writing
Physical nakedness with our spouse is good.
Emotional nakedness with our spouse is equally as important.
A good marriage requires no secrets. Complete openness.
It’s not about me.
It’s about *we*.
Make sure your choices are what is best for your marriage. Not simply what you want.
Selfishness has no place in a marriage.
Questions to ask yourself before bringing up a concern:
- Is this an ongoing issue
- Is this the right time to bring this up
- Will NOT bringing this up allow problems to become worse
Being open with concerns, can increase love, connection
What We Have Been Reading
The real deathblow to marriages isn't how often you two fight, but how often you fail to resolve the issue.
Conflict isn't the end of the world and you can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs.
It’s okay to love your spouse and be annoyed with them sometimes.
That’s kind of how it works.
Marriage isn’t a choice; It is a MILLION choices, every single day. Love is a verb. And a muscle. The more we CHOOSE to use it, the stronger it grows.
