The meeting was designed to discuss topics and situations from the current year and concepts we wanted to add, improve, or change for the upcoming year.
While things haven’t always been the best, they have also been great! I am so thankful for my husband, for who he is and what he does for my boys and me. He is an excellent role model for our sons and me as well! He’s interested in so many things, which allows him to be a great source of help in multiple areas in life. I’ve grown a lot because of him!
Toni mentioned that you need to be willing to forgive your partner if they are unfaithful, but I did disagree immensely with this mostly because I’ve been there, done that, and it didn’t end well.

After being married for almost nineteen years, I have learned many things that I believe would have helped me before marriage. Therefore, I want to be sure to relay the message to anyone else just getting started.
Have you ever heard couples saying “When you know you know” as a response to how they knew they were in love? How about “life is too short” as a reason for tying the knot abruptly?
If you are just beginning to date, have been dating for a while, you’re engaged, or you have nothing more than the thoughts of being a spouse someday, please ask yourself these questions and be honest with your responses.
