From My Own Experiences
I am no expert
Nineteen years of marriage
This is what I have learned
You both took vows to love each other
That's all I needed to know
From that point forward
I will do everything and anything to make it work
I threw out the excuse book
You may ask all kinds of questions
None are off the table
If my advice helps great
If it doesn't there are thousands of experts out there to tell you different
How is it to be married?
Amazing waking up in someone's arms
Going to bed after a busy day
With someone who has your best interest and supports you better than a back brace
Not all things in life are funny
That is true
But what else can I do?
I can be upset and aggravated
Then again I can find little bits of humor
That might change our minds and our outcome
So I share my marriage in an ongoing poem
It has a special place
It starts in my home
What do you do when you disagree?
I kiss more than ever
If we don't see eye to eye
I have to find a way to break down those roadblocks and barriers
A kiss does the trick
For we got married because we found love
That love started long before our first kiss
It was more what I wanted love to be
More what my wife wanted love to be
Together we made the sparks fly
Everything is o.k.
As I watched the fire department drive-by
So here is a glimpse
If you would like more
Come on over and knock on my door

Sannyasi Raja When we are not married that is when we learn the most. You have so much to give and share. We do things that we like and don't like to do. Sometimes we are lazy and procrastinate. There are times we work too much and spend little time together. Before you are married is the perfect time to learn. If you have someone you really like you can pretend you are married and see at different times what your choices would be. Sometimes the same sometimes different. When they are different who is right or wrong. Maybe you both are half right. Do you learn or do you stay stubborn and stuck in your ways. Are you willing to compromise? You don't want to wait till your married to know what you really care about and the way you should and want to be treated. You are making the framework for the house that you build. Without a good foundation, the house could collapse. Then again if we do it right we don't have to fix it later. It could be small changes and they prevent big problems. Feel free to ask any questions and I will be happy to answer. You can e-mail me if you prefer. Life is filled with so many ups and downs. If you are with the right person you will ride the highs and lows. In the end, you will feel better than you have ever felt with someone by your side than you have felt by yourself. They will compliment you in ways that you never thought of. You will also be able to give more than you thought possible. I hope this gives you a little food for thought. Enjoy being single too. Then when the time comes hopefully you will love being married for all the right reasons. Life is short. it seems like we have all the time in the world. Then one day you would do anything to be twenty again. There is no going back. We can enjoy every step of the way. Then all we have to do is look into the future and what comes next. Thank you so much for reading and caring. I hope you both have a great day. You look so good together.

I liked your perspective of married life as you have the real experience. You are casual and also serious when required. Not being married I don't have anything to share. But please share more of your observation and realization in your own style.

Bill Holland I spent thirteen years in a relationship I thought was going to be the right one. Then when that didn't work out I wondered could there really be something better. Then love struck again and this time it was for keeps. We work hard and together we can accomplish so much. We have so many things in common and other things we like that are different. I wouldn't have been able to see that years ago. Things happen for a reason. Thank you so much for dropping in. My wife says she is the lucky one. I say I know I am. Marriage suits me to a t. I don't even have to make any alterations. (lol) Have a beautiful night. Enjoying the married life.

Louise Powles If you know what you want and keep doing the things that make you happy when love comes along it might just be the right one. Unfortunately, sometimes you come across a few relationships that don't work out, and hopefully, they will lead you to the one you love. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a nice night.

Marriage can be a wonderful thing if you find the right person.

That sums it all up perfectly. I love being married, and I had no idea I would ever say that again until I met my wife. The game changed after that moment, and it stopped being a game.
I hope this finds you well, my friend.
