Marriage Monday

August 3, 2015

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I did, full of family and fun. I can't believe it's already the week of y anniversary, honestly it seems like no time has passed-and yet I can't remember life without my husband. 

It was this time last year I only had a few days left till I became a Mrs. And the decision to become one hadn't be lightly. I see so many get divorced these days like its nothing, and it breaks my heart. I wanted the marriage where you are together for years, and the only reason you separate is death (not that I want that to happen anytime soon good gravy no! We are too young). But I wanted the lasting love, so when we got married I immediatly got books on christian marriages. 

Not because our marriage was in trouble, but because I want to keep it from being that way. One of the best books I've read with marriages is called, "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. It helps you understand why you and your husband may not be on the same wavelength all the time. 

For example; my love language is Words of Affirmation. No surprise there, I love to talk or were and I love to hear I'm loved,appreciated, or someone is proud of me. I have to hear it to make it true. That's just who I am, B however is not. He is more of a physical touch and gift giver. When we are in town,or at home he wants to hold my hand, rub my back and shoulders , or just put his arm around me. That's part of how he shows his love. His other way is gifts. He might bring me home a Dr. pepper, or my favorite candy bar. His other way to show he thought of me. 

I'm glad I found this out early in marriage because it has helped us both be able to show our love in a way out partner needs. So yes I read marriage help books to keep our marriage strong and I think it's great. 

I really recommend buying this book as a wedding present along with a Bible and the "Love Dare" (another great book but that's for a different day.). 

What are some books you have used in your marriage?
