“Clear communication. Respect. A lot of laughter. And a lot of orgasms. That’s what makes a marriage work.” -Dr. Dre. I Also might have stolen this from Levi Lusko’s Instagram the other day.
Ya’ll marriage should be fun not only that it needs to be. The problem is we get distracted with the to do’s of life to make time for fun in our marriages. But the truth is, we make time for what’s important to us and if our marriages are important we should be making the time to add value to them.
Without fun marriage is nothing but a business relationship. Why is it that we put so much effort when we’re dating and then after we’re married the effort stops?
“Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil.” Ecc 9:9 NLT
There are things Matt and I both enjoy doing together but there are also the things that only one of us likes to do. When it came to our marriage I had to realize that what is important to him is also important to me and vice versa. We both LOVE movies, however, we don’t always love the same type of movies. I have went to the movies to see a movie I could care less about but I do care a whole bunch about the guy that really wanted to see the movie. Marriage is a constant journey of serving the other in everything.
My husband and I also love to play sports together. We have been on softball leagues, volleyball, and flag football. Sometimes our competitivness would get the best of us and our rides home were silent but at the end the day that is something we enjoy doing together.
Ladies, I can guarantee that the type of fun your husband probably wants is the fun you have between the sheets. The problem is we tend to spend all our energy on things that don’t matter and have nothing left for husbands at the end of the day.
Y’all at the end of day remember why you fell in love in the first place. Make your spouse your best friend and live your lives together having a blast. Again, click here to order Pastor Craig’s book, “From This Day Forward.”
