im good at keeping my mouth shut now lol were camping all next week for a honeymoon going fishing and relaxing for a week.all the advice helps guys

 

If that is your honeymoon... you got it made.

 

My wife and I just passed our 7th, that isn't a long time and I married an angel so I might not be qualified to GIVE advice but here it goes.

 

First, she should be your best friend because you should put her in that position, your old buddies are in the back seat. Simple as that.

 

Second, there are some things you can't un-say and/or un-do. Never cross the line of verbal insults or cursing (at her). Never cross the line of infidelity.

 

Third, if you want something... find a way to make her want it... you'll get it faster with less begging and less apologizing :)

 

Last, I'm not going to say to never go to sleep mad but I will say to at least always kiss her and tell her you love her. It means more to say it then, then it does any other time.

Saw this post on FB today and it is fitting to post for this young lad to consider as he enters into married abyss..  (bliss)

 

Burned Biscuits - A lesson we all should learn.

When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!

All my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my Mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing... never made a face nor uttered a word about it!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my Mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said, "Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Mom put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides, a little burned biscuit never hurt anyone!"

As I've grown older, I've thought about that many times. Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today... that you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket... keep it in your own."

So, please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will do just fine.
And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life--I just did!
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

"Would you please pass the jelly!!!"

Congrats!  There is some really good advice. If I had to pick one, communication would be it.  As with anything worthwhile, it takes work and is not always easy.

 

Think long term. 63 years for my in laws, 52 for mine and I have been married 21 years.

I wasn't nervous until they opened the doors at the back of the church and I saw that angle standing there in white dress... from that point on I was a nervous wreck because I wanted it to be perfect for her!!

Yep, that's about when I got nervous too, when I saw her turn that corner to started up the isle.

 

I like the biscuit story. I've neard the same about husband drinking tea for years and finally told the wife he didn't want any. She said" but you love tea". He said, no I don't , Ive just been drinking it cause you made it for me.

 

Little humor related to burnt biscuits...my dad always said my mom treated him like a god, he got regular burnt offerings :bigrofl:

The Lord Grants a Wish

 

A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer.All of a sudden, he said out loud, "Lord, grant me one wish."

Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice the Lord said,"Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish."

The man said,"Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want to."

The Lord said,"Your request is very materialistic.Besides, think of the logistics of that kind of undertaking.The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific!The concrete and steel it would take!

I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things.Take a little more time and think of another wish,a wish you think would honor and glorify me."

The man thought about it for a long time.

Finally he said,"Lord, I wish that I could understand women.I want to know how they feel inside,what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment,why they cry,what they mean when they say 'nothing',and how I can make a woman truly happy."

After a few minutes God said, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
