Thread: Thirty-six Years
#1 Thirty-six Years05-23-2011, 11:29 PM
Thirty-six years ago tomorrow, those crazy kids I call my parents ran off to Yuma, AZ and eloped. I feel really fortunate to have their example of a marriage built on love and trust. I hope someday (God willing), I can put their example to practice in my own marriage.
If you could give a new couple only one piece of advice to making a relationship work, what would that be?2011 CU Fantasy Baseball Champion

Don't have children."Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

1) A sense of humor
2) A sense of fairness
3) The right amount of patience
In other words; lighten up; give the other guy a chance; and if all else fails, kick ass:)

It may sound glib, but I'm absolutely serious."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

Before you decide to make a smart, bitter, or provocative remark to your spouse, go do something else for 10 minutes. If you still feel like you need to ruin their day with sarcasm or some kind of passive-aggresive bullshit, do what you need to do.
If you both have the same value system, 90% of marital discord comes from saying ugly things (even in jest). You can never un-ring that bell so you'd better be 100% certain that ugly or demeaning talk is going to result in a Candy Mountain unicorn fest 10 minutes later.
