Happy Wives Club
by Fawn Weaver
– There is such a thing as having a happy marriage.
– Movies, sitcom’s, magazines and society tells us otherwise, but marriage can be strong, fulfilling and happy.
– Hollywood and media seems to be fixed on divorce.
– Marriage should be your plan A & B and there should be no other plans.
– Once you say something, you cannot take it back, it will be in the brain forever.
– Laughing is an important ingredient to a good marriage.
– A good marriage doesn’t have perfect spouses rather imperfect ones who are working to consistently become better.
– Hanging around with people who badmouth their spouses will begin to cause you to look for defects and badmouth your spouse.
– Going to bed mad at your spouse is assuming that you will wake up the next day to continue the argument — but what a tragedy it would be if you don’t wake up together tomorrow.
– The key to a good marriage is not what you receive but what you give.
– Marriages that fail usually fail because they are self-focused, looking for their own happiness.
– You must give what you want — if you want respect, then give it, etc.
– Marriage changes when you have children, but it does not have to change for the worse.
– Love and mutual respect are two things those happily married for over 25 years have in common.
– Just because you go to church does not mean you will have a happy marriage, but becoming a stronger Christian will improve your marriage.
– Gratitude toward your spouse will change your marriage.
– You can care for your children and still keep your marriage as priority.
