WHAT YOUNGER COUPLES CAN LEARN FROM OLDER COUPLES:

1. Your spouse is the closest friend you will ever have.

2. Intentionally nurturing your love is worth it. You will not regret putting in the work.

3. In the end, friends come and go, clients come and go, bosses come and go, colleagues come and go, neighbours change and move out… but your spouse is with you till you’re old and grey.

4. Children shouldn’t come in between you two. Don’t focus on parenthood to the point you forget your love as a couple, children eventually move out too and have less time for you both.

5. Love is sweetest when you meet each other’s needs.

6. Marriage will have different seasons, some difficult and some easy. Each season will require its own wisdom.

7. Be kind to each other especially during moments of conflict.

8. Agree on what to do and not to do to make your marriage better.

9. The more you mature, the easier it is to handle conflicts and disagreements.

10. The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it is greener where it is watered. Water and take care of your love.

11. In your old age, you will reap what you sowed when you were younger.

12. Never stop learning. Don’t do marriage with an ego, a know it all attitude or an urge to prove who is more right or more wrong.

13. Hurting your spouse is hurting you. Keeping scores and holding grudges is a lose-lose situation.

14. “Good morning”, “Good night”, “Please”, “Thank you”, “I am sorry” are powerful words in marriage.
