My dentist of all people told me this years ago and I’ve always remembered and liked it. I think in some ways this is absolutely true when it comes to having a happy marriage. Not entirely of course, but I feel the combination of these things definitely plays a part in the success of my marriage. Not many people here know that I was married once before for a short time. And I feel that not having something to do or something to look forward to contributed to the demise of that relationship. We were very young and unfortunately we did not have much in common, hence the lack of something to do and something to look forward to.
My marriage to the Hubby is completely different. We were friends before we started dating and we have many of the same interests. Having something to do and look forward to is never a problem for us. Although we’ve only been married for four years and I’m definitely not the authority on this, I sometimes think part of the reason people go through “Post Wedding Blues” is because the ‘something to look forward to’ disappears after the wedding. Now I’m sure I’m going to get all kinds of comments and maybe some hate mail for saying that, but it’s just my opinion. You can take it or leave it.
Anyhow, just thought I’d throw this little thought out there. If you’re married or soon to be married, the someone to love is complete, hopefully 😉 Now do you have something to do and something to look forward to?
Have a Fab You Bliss Friday & weekend!
