"The difference between courtship and marriage
is the difference between the picture in the seed catalog
and what comes up."

-James Wharton-

A Recipe in Marriage

A good marriage has a blend of many ingredients
as two lives become one,
and only grows stronger and more resilient
with the passing of time.


1. All marriages face times of stress.
In your marriage, what factors are in place which help you face difficult times?

2. What areas of your marriage need help?

3. How long has it been since you and your mate
had a weekend together with no interruptions and no kids present?

I want to share this book I'm reading which was given by my bestfriend before I left home and my godmother before I got married. The book is about making marriage work by Harold Sala. For those who are in a relationship and those who are married, this might be helpful to keep your connection tight with your partner. As you read through the post, take time to reflect and assess yourself. Feel free to express your views about this article.

    Thank you too Leia! There are 52 guidelines,
    I'll post everything as I read through the book.

    have a great day!

  3. sounds like an interesting read.

    i think most relationships may encounter probs but it takes 2 to tango. u have to give & take to make it work.

  4. Ayie Says:

    That's so true Life Ramblings, both should make an effort to make it work.

    Problems come and go and that spices up and strengthens the relationship as you go through the hurdles.

  5. Nobody is perfect. Each partner has their strong and weak sides, it is necessary to know how to make sacrifices on both sides and learn to give and receive exactly the same way, and above everything love the other one with their defects (even if they are unchangeable), this is the only way, in my opinion that it will work between couples.

  6. Ayie Says:

    That's a very good insight Sabah (sousoukitchen). It's true, sacrifices and acceptance is very important. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
