GERALD ROGERS’ TOP TIPS FOR MARRIAGE SUCCESS (REPOST)

GERALD ROGERS’ TOP TIPS FOR MARRIAGE SUCCESS*

  1. Never stop courting. Never stop dating. Never ever take that woman for granted.
  2. Keep a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife.
  3. Fall in love over and over and over again. You will constantly change. You’re not the same people you were when you got married.
  4. Always see the best in her. Focus only on what you love. If you focus on what bugs you, all you will see is reasons to be bugged.
  5. It’s not your job to change or fix her . . .  your job is to love her as she is with no expectation of her ever changing.
  6. Take full accountability for your own emotions: it’s not your wife’s job to make you happy, and she can’t make you sad.
  7. Never blame your wife if you get frustrated or angry at her, it is only because it is triggering something inside of you. They are your emotions, and your responsibility.
  8. Be silly . . . don’t take yourself so damn seriously. Laugh. And make her laugh. Laughter makes everything else easier.
  9. Don’t be an idiot . . . And don’t be afraid of being one either. You will make mistakes and so will she.
  10. Don’t worry about money. Money is a game, find ways to work together as a team to win it.
