16 ways he blew his marraige

 


I thought this was a great read, I wanted to share. When asked to offer advice to his sister for a happy marraige, the author, divorced twice, couldn't. Instead he offered “keep your marriage from ending” advice and the things he would do differently.

I like number 2. Sometimes even when we're just spending a lazy Sunday at home I still curl my lashes and swipe a bit of mascara. I want DH to always think of me as pretty (even though he says I always am anyway, he's a liar!)


DH and I are pretty good about the gym one recently. His cholsterol was high and I was having headaches all the time. We changed the way we eat and we work out a lot suring the week. His cholesterol is back to normal, we feel healthier, have more enegry and feel more confident! Nothing wrong with a push to the gym, I know he's not telling me I'm fat, he just wants me to be healthy for our future so we can live together long and happy!


The poo one is my favorite. I tell DH I don't poo lol. Maybe TMI --but I still run upstairs (or to the furthest bathroom from my DH) all my long time married friends say that will change in the future, but I always said it wouldn't! PSH now that I've read this, it won't! ;)
