Moment of Truth

March 1, 2015

Being married for 25 years, I often get asked the question:

How did you manage to stay together this long?    Marriage involves compromises…a lot!  You have to give a lot and get a little.  There are going to be lots of disagreements that may lead to heated arguments, but if you are married and have never had an argument…lucky you.  You will go through trials and tribulations together and separately…this should make you stronger – if it doesn’t, don’t question it – seek help from a much Higher Authority.

Never take advice from other people, whether they are married or not…draw upon your own experience and learn to trust each other.  My husband and I have gone through a lot together, but through it all, we have managed to keep our marriage together.  Yes, people will try to manipulate, disrupt, and intervene….people will lie on you, talk about you, and will stop at nothing to make your lives a living hell.  It’s up to you.  Do you believe everything you hear?  Jump to conclusions…each other’s throats?  Do you get mad at each other and stop speaking for a couple of days?  Or, do you discuss it?  Admit you were wrong and try to mend things?

I was given bad advice….NEVER AGAIN!  You see, when you are given advice – take it – and it backfires…Do you know what you will hear from the one giving the advice?  “You didn’t have to take my advice.”  Lesson learned.

There are a lot of couples that have been married longer than my husband and me and there are some that are just starting out.  For the most part, don’t wear your feelings on your sleeves – don’t take anything too personal.

Please don’t give up too quick on each other.  As I mentioned earlier, sometimes you have to seek a Higher Power.  The idea is to be united as “one” not “two”.  Get your priorities straight by placing God first, family second, and everything else will fall in place according to God’s will and purpose for your life.
