Things I wish I’d Known Before We Got Married

Before I got married

Intermittently, I read books on relationships and marriage. I’d like to share with you some lessons I picked from Gary Chapman’s book “Things I wish I knew before I got married.”

  1. Toilets are not self cleaning
  2.  I’m not just marrying only my spouse but i’m marrying into a family
  3. There’s a need to plan for our money
  4.  The love experience is not an adequate foundation for marriage
  5. Apologizing is a sign of strength
  6. Mutual sexual satisfaction doesn’t just happen.
  7. Spirituality is not about going to church
  8. Personality profoundly influences behavior
  9. The saying “Like mother like daughter and like father like son” are not myths
  10. It’s possible to solve disagreements without arguing
  11. Romantic love has two stages; Tingly feeling and Intentional Feeling. Couples must be willing to build the intentional feeling stage if they want a lasting relationship.

There you have it! What do you think?
