It’s hard to believe I’m writing an article about what I’ve learned in 25 years of marriage; just saying 25 years of marriage sounds crazy to me!

 

Trust me, I never knew that night I met Randy in a hot tub that one day we’d share a beautiful daughter, Alex, travel, move, and ride the crazy waves of life as we have together.

Now, I’m not the sentimental type, so I won’t get too gushy here, so I thought I’d share 7 lessons learned from 25 years of marriage – the good, the bad and the ugly – because that’s marriage in its full glory, right?!

 

I hope you enjoy!

 

 



7 Lessons Learned from 25 Years of Marriage

 

1.     Have a sense of humor; life is literally too short to take things too seriously.

 

2.     Have a husband/partner who is a great cook. It’s hard to stay mad at someone who just made you dinner!

 

3.     Don’t go to bed mad at each other when there’s Ambien®!

 

4.     When you’re in the throws of perimenopause, don’t poke the bear (literally + figuratively!).

 

Budweiser + a good time!

5.     An alcoholic beverage and a good sense of humor can go a long way.

 

6.     Appreciate the other person; even if they’re driving you crazy.

 

7.     Learn to accept the other person for who they are + how you complement each other because of that.

Cheers to 25 years of lessons learned and the people we are now because of everything we’ve endured.
