Rules For a Happy Marriage.

I came across this quote the other day and it really hit home:

"When a wife has a good husband it is easily seen in her face." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

One of my very favorite presents that we got for our wedding was a little plaque that hangs on the wall in our bathroom. Right where we can see it when we get ready for work in the morning.

It is - Rules For a Happy Marriage.

I love this list of rules because some of them make me laugh, and some of them are so spot on. And since today is our 3 Year Anniversary, and we've got what I would consider to be a very happy marriage, I thought I would share!

My grandparents have been married for 63 years. I know that their marriage wasn't perfect. In fact, I know at times, it was really really hard. But I also can't deny the look my grandfather gets in his eyes every time he describes the day he first met my grandmother, and it makes my heart happy to watch them hold hands and tell each other that they love each other after all of these years. More every day, I'm sure.

And our marriage isn't perfect either. I'm not saying that at all....in fact, some of these rules we are still working on!

But I will say this, I couldn't be happier. :)

Rules For A Happy Marriage

♥ Never be angry at the same time.

♥ Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.

♥ If one of you has to win an argument, let it be the other one.

(notice the picture has the wife winning here, guys.)

♥ Never bring up mistakes from the past.

♥ Neglect the whole world rather than each other.

♥ Never go to sleep with an argument unsettled.

♥ At least once a day say something kind or complimentary to each other.

♥ Remember that it takes two for everything, especially love.

"Grow old with me. The best is yet to be."
