25 years of marriage

May 24th, will be 25 years I’ve been marriage to my awesome husband.

I thought it would be really cool to highlight 25 things we share in common, 25 things we love as a couple. Highlighting it over the course of 25 days up until our anniversary date. At first I thought this would be hard but as I thought about it, I was able to find 20 things with no problem at all.

As I put thought into this, I realized my husband and I have been able to last because we’ve lived a simple married life.

We’ve enjoyed things like, a drive around town, taking a walk, cooking together, enjoying the sun and the moon etc.

We dont argue over money and we try to never go to bed mad.

We dont sweat the small things, such as leaving up a toilet seat or not putting the top back on the tooth paste.

I am ambitious, a big dreamer. My husband has supported every idea I’ve come up with and vice versa.

“Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.” – Barnett R. Brickner

Wise couples realize that a nice home, car, or retirement account may appear nice to have, but they do not make a successful marriage. They understand that there are far more important principles to its success.

At its core there are a few key things to a successful marriage.

1. Love/Commitment

2. Sexual faithfulness

3. Humility

4. Patients/ Forgiveness

5. Time/Date nights

6. Honesty/Trust

7. Communication

8. Selflessness

9. Friendship

10. Mindfulness

Accomplishing the items listed above will always require every bit of yourself. After all, a successful marriage is more valuable than most things we chase. And will last longer if we try.

By no means am I saying our marriage is perfect but we strive to make it work every single day.

You can find our 25 years, 25 days of 25 things we love as a couple:
