#Truish: Almost Always True Marriage Advice You Can Take to the Altar & Beyond
Last fall, we were the guest speakers at a retreat for young marrieds. We did our best to put together a weekend that was engaging and thoughtful. And for the most party, the survey results showed we succeeded. But the surveys did surprise us with one thing: the couples wanted more advice. Exactly how do we make marriage work for a lifetime?, they wanted to know.
We want to know that too, and we don’t have the answer. In fact, we felt uncomfortable trying to give advice, and had spent the entire retreat carefully avoiding the appearance of doing so!
As a result of that experience, we started looking for the most “truish” advice of marriage: concepts that could serve any relationship well, in just about any circumstance. We’re a little squeamish about giving advice, but we have found a few worthy ideas that reoccur in our reading and research and life experience. Concepts you can take to the altar, and well beyond.
So, here you go: here’s some mostly can’t fail marriage truth. (If you agree that it’s truish, please pass it on through Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever.) More posts coming weekly.
