Advice On Marriage

 

• Always eat a good breakfast. A good marriage requires lots of energy and you shouldn’t start the day on an empty stomach.

 

• Always put the other person first.

 

• Never leave home without a kiss. It’s nice. If you can work in a little pat, that is an added bonus.

 

• Have fun. If you don’t make each other laugh, there is something wrong.

 

• Accept early in marriage that there are some things you’ll never agree on the proper room temperature, station wagons, Capri pants, the three stooges. Don’t panic. This is normal.

 

• Don’t try to win every argument. Compromise with dignity. And no gloating.

 

• Live within your means. Money management is a lot more important than you may think in marital bliss. Don’t be afraid to do without.

 

Things won’t keep you together. When you look back, it isn’t things you remember.

 

• Surprises. You need lots of them.

 

• Don’t sulk, whine or leave things in your pockets on washday.

 

• Don’t save your best smiles for strangers, people at the office, clients. Get your priorities straight.

 

• Talk to each other.

 

• Have a nice, big, cozy bed where you can start and end each day with a cuddle. If you’re to busy to cuddle, you are probably suffering from a bad case of self-importance—fatal in a marriage.

 

• Don’t take each other for granted even if you’re celebrating your golden anniversary.

 

• Be faithful.

 

• Don’t figure romance is over once you’re married. It’s just started, if you play it right.

 

• Have dinners at night with everyone around the table discussing the days events. Don’t have the TV on. Don’t read the newspaper. Don’t complain. It’s time to lighten up and relax.

 

• Serve whipped cream now and then. Whipped cream puts everybody in a good mood.

 

• A little lace never hurt a marriage.

 

• Have children, and when you have them, take care of them. Love them, enjoy them, hug them. Children are probably the most important contribution you’ll make to the world, so don’t treat them like a hobby or leave them to strangers to raise.

 

• Have a porch as soon as you can, and a couple of nice chairs. Sit out on summer evenings and watch sunsets. You don’t always have to be on the go.

 

• Be around when things go right, but also when they go wrong.

 

• Listen, listen, listen. You’ll be surprised what you learn.

 

• No double standards.

 

• Early in the morning, when you’re still half-awake, reach over and touch your partner to reassure yourself that he or she is there, and that things are all right.

 

• Tenderness is legal.
