5 LESSONS AFTER TWO YEARS OF MARRIAGE


September 10th 2018 marks our two year wedding anniversary, in honor of the occasion (and a combined gift for hubby's 30th) we headed to Nice, France to celebrate. Blog posts coming soon!

Honestly, I don't know where those past two years went, time moves so quickly, but it's really hard to believe that it's been two whole years since the day we said 'I do'. After two years of marriage, I can hardly call myself an expert, but I wanted to share with you 5 lessons I've learned over the past 24 months. 

1. Don't Compare your Marriage.

Like with much in life, comparison is the quickest way to discontentment, and that's true for marriage too. Just because you see other's doing things differently doesn't mean you should do it that way too. Be grateful for the person you married and your marriage just the way it is. 


2. Laugh Regularly.

It's true what they say, laughter is the best medicine. In every situation, remember to make time to enjoy each other and have a good giggle. 

3. Forgive Quickly.

Easily said, not so easily done. For some reason we tend to hold our spouses to a higher standard than we do others, we expect them to say the right things and do the right things all of the time. Remember they're only human too, so learning to forgive quickly is the easiest way to a happy marriage.

4. No one Wins at an Argument. 

Just because you're married doesn't mean you're immune from arguments, we're all human as I mentioned above. However, the problem is that even if you 'win' an argument, that means your other half is probably left feeling sad or hurt, so in reality - you both lose and your marriage does too. 


5. Don't bring up something important in the car. 

Simply put, there is a time and a place for important conversations, the car just isn't one of them!
