Make Your Marriage as Great as Your Wedding
First of all, let me offer you my congratulations. You are getting married. And you are planning a wedding. I hope you have the most wonderful day of your life and your wedding is everything you hope it to be. I certainly remember my wedding day as the best of my life and my wedding reception as the best party I have ever been to. I hope you can say the same.
But that is not why I am here today. I want to talk to you about your marriage, the reason you are getting married in the first place. While it is a lot of work to put together a wedding, it is also a lot of work to put together a good marriage. It is certainly worth the effort and it is effort that pays off in the long term.
Often we take the view that marriages take care of themselves. All you have to do is choose the right person and then everything works out. I mean, that is the way it works in the movies and in fairy tales, isn’t it? Real life is different. Happily ever after isn’t automatic. It takes some effort to make a relationship work. The good news is that with the right knowledge and a few skills, creating a fantastic marriage is within your reach.
I’m all about relationships. My work is devoted to helping people have the best relationships they can in all aspects of their lives. And there is no more important relationship than a marriage. Over the next few months I will be sharing with you ways you can act now to make your marriage as strong and happy as possible. This will include such things as issues to talk about, how to communicate, and fight, constructively, and many other things, maybe even a few that will help reduce the wedding planning stress.
Please don’t be bummed out and ignore me because I am saying a good marriage takes work. Just remember that the marriage is the reason for the wedding. It takes effort, but the rewards are enough to make the effort worthwhile.
Talk to you soon.
