Marriage Monday: The Rest Of Your…

Hi. I’m the ModernMarriedGuy, and I am guest-posting on my wife’s blog. I don’t like to blog, and I don’t even like to write, but I do love her and will do anything to make her happy. She asked, so here it goes:

After ten-plus years of marriage, here are my observations:

The Rest Of Your is the inner essence of one’s self. Everyone is a person and in marriage, you are that “one” person who is a partner of another “one” person. For the rest of your life, you have to remember that you are working with and in love with a person, another human being. For the rest of your life, you have to give the rest of yours. The rest is up to you.

Saying things like PLEASE and THANK YOU. Helping each other through hard times, sharing each other’s burdens, understanding each other’s ideas, accepting each other’s faults, and putting aside misguided prejudice of each other’s habits takes a lot of practice and patience. But you have to understand that one’s person’s likes is another person’s dislikes. A small example, if your spouse likes sugar on their rice, so what. If you spouse likes mayonnaise with fries, so what.

My wife has this saying that goes something like, “Know who you marry, and like what you know.”

Because if you don’t, things will get old rather quickly, for The Rest Of Your Life.
