30 Ways To Stay Married For 30 Years

• Mind your manners. Say please and thank you and excuse me.

• Take care of yourself. Eat right, exercise and get some sleep so you can be around for the next 30 years.

• Assume the best. Chances are he/she meant to do the right thing even if they messed it up.

• Take turns with the Netflix queue. And restaurant choices. And the TV remote.

• Go out for breakfast. Even if it’s just for a $1 donut. It’s important to carve out time to talk together.

• Be a team. Keep your fights in the locker room.

• Be spouses first. Then be parents second and children third.

• Cultivate separate hobbies. Be interested in things you can talk about other than the kids and the house and your parents.

• Travel together. It brings out the best and worst in you, so you can work through the worst and enjoy the best.

• Put your phone down and make eye contact.

• Kiss more.

• Believe he/she is the most fascinating person in the room. At one time you thought so and it’s not fair to change.

• Be on time. It conveys respect and honor.

• Never make sweeping blanket statements. No one does something every time or always.

• Be amazed. Your spouse is unique. Like no one else God ever made. And they chose you. And you chose them. Be amazed.
