After I wrote What I Learned After 1,000 Days of Marriage, a few people commented that the Husband should write a similar post. So – we sat on the couch and I typed as he shared his insights. Here’s what Kristien learned after 1,000 days of being married to crazy old me. Lord help him.
1- Try not to go to bed angry.
2 – Never let money control you or your relationship.
3 – Share the remote.
4 – Clean, cook, or take out the dogs even when it’s not your turn. She’ll appreciate it more than you realize.
5 – Be malleable with your schedule. If you go into a day with a set plan, be open to changing your plans if your partner has other things in mind.
6 – Listen with your ears and your eyes.
7 – Neither person should ever make unilateral decisions.
8 – Encourage, support, and be excited to take part in your partner’s hobbies, even if it isn’t your thing.
9 – Never say, "Is it that time of the month?"
10 - Kiss and hug. All the time.
