In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am going to start a series of blog post on Marriage Tips. Kyle and I have been married about 2 and a half years and I feel in my heart that we couldn’t be happier. We have settled into our marriage and I thought I would share some things I think have really helped us get off to the right start.
To kick off the series I wanted to write about something I think is so important in our marriage. We do everything with a team mentality. We work together to accomplish our goals. We help each other. We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves to help the other person.
For example, we clean the house together. We split up the things that need to be done and we do them separately to get the whole house done. We do dishes together, laundry, we make dinner together, we shop together, and we work out together. You probably realize that I am so lucky to have a husband who helps out around the house, and I realize this too. I know how rare and special my husband is!!
Of course, there are times when we do things separately and just help the other person out if they are doing something else. But that is kind of the point, we work together to get things done. I feel like doing things this way relieves the other person of the entire burden and foster a healthy marriage where both people value the other ones time.
So marriage tip one is help each other out and be a team working together to accomplish your goals. Helping each other out equals love, selflessly putting the other person ahead of you.
