Here’s what they shared:
"Keep God First. Weddings and funerals bring the best and worst out of people. Keep your focus." - Aisha R.
"Remain friends." - Robert C.
"Happy wife, happy life! Be considerate and unselfish! Ride or die until the wheels fall off." - Francisco P.
"Don’t be afraid to give each other the space and opportunity to nurture your individual interests and qualities. It keeps the relationship interesting." - Alicia J.
"BE NICE! Even when you don’t want to be!" - Sebrina T.
"Don’t listen to anyone’s advice!" - Tony B.
Receiving guidance throughout your engagement is great, but many times it will be unsolicited or just won’t apply to you. I believe it’s up to each individual couple to chart their own course to matrimony and what’s most important is being in tune with one another and your own needs as a couple. If advice rings true, great, utilize it in your relationship! If it doesn’t resonate with you, file it away for future use or forget about it all together.
Now it’s your turn to share. Married folks, what’s the best advice you heard and applied when you were engaged? If you could go back in time and talk to your newly engaged self, what would you say?
Let’s keep this conversation going!
