Marriage Advice

We’ve all read the stories or seen the videos of those crazy, extravagant, creative marriage proposals. Some of us want them, some of us think it’s ridiculous, and it makes some of us nervous. For those who get the honor of creating the marriage proposal, the pressure can be overwhelming. One of the subjects of worry is the actual lines within the marriage proposal. Thankfully for you, I’m going to share with you the best marriage proposal lines and how to craft a marriage proposal that will be both special and romantic for your future wife.

At first, it may appear that you have to pull out “all the stops.” You’ve got to write a poem, a song, hire a band to play music, teach her family or friends a dance number, or send a blimp through the sky. Relax. You don’t need to any of this. What every woman wants in a marriage proposal is truth and love. The best way to show these qualities is by sharing your thoughts and feelings about a life together.

When you begin to craft your marriage proposal lines and look at your marriage proposal word ideas, think in simple terms. The best place to start is by looking at your memories with your partner. What special moments stick out to you? When did you know you really liked her and why? When did you know you loved her and why? When did you know that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with her and why? What are her most physically attractive traits to you and why? What are your favorite internal qualities about her? Once you have compiled a list, create your lines from this list. Your partner wants to know why you feel the way you do. She wants you to be honest, truthful, open, and caring. Romance is really all about a connection found in love. That love is strongest is when it is actively expressed. You will already be expressing your love for her just by asking her to marry you. However, you can go further. By adding lines before asking those famous lines (Will you marry me?), you can be sure to share your heart with your beloved.

I know it’s nerve-wracking to ask the woman you love to marry you. It was for me when I asked my wife to marry me. Her fondest recollection of our marriage proposal involves the moment before I asked that famous question. I told her the things I loved most about her. I told her the way she makes me feel. I told her why I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her and I shared some of my favorite memories we had created together. This is what makes a proposal romantic.

Lastly, remember to be you. Your wife fell in love with you for a reason – she loves things about you. She’ll love the lines you speak if you speak them the way that you usually would. Don’t go looking for quotes, books, poems, and songs to speak for you. If you want to recite a line from “your song” together, then do. If you are a naturally artistic person and you want to share a creative work, go for it. If you aren’t though, don’t worry about finding something. Take the time to share how you feel and express your desires. This is what is considered truly romantic and what will make the moment truly memorable to both of you for years to come.

The marriage proposal is one of the most talked about phenomenons in dating. Everyone wants their marriage proposal to be special and men go out of their way to try to make it “the best.” In today’s world, with our ever-expanding access to other people’s media, we see all different kinds of marriage proposals. Don’t believe me? Just head over to Youtube and see for yourself. With this visibility of other marriage proposals, men are often worried about making the proposal. Not only are they worried or nervous about being rejected, but now they are worried that the wedding proposal will be less than satisfactory. What’s a guy to do? What is the perfect marriage proposal?

Marriage is about spending your life together, side by side. A marriage proposal should be about the love that surrounds that commitment.

Luckily for men, the perfect marriage proposal isn’t as daunting as it may seem. While some women really do want the biggest and grandest gestures, it’s likely that you’ll already know if you have one of those women. Most women don’t care about the grandeur of the proposal itself, but rather about the emotion and love behind it. In other words, they want to know you care and they want to hear you share how you feel.

When looking for ways to propose, think of ways to make it special and unique. A woman wants to know that you’ve thought about it, that you mean it, and that you are excited for this next step in your relationship as well. Look for places that mean something to both of you. Perhaps there is a park that you first walked through when you began dating? Or maybe that restaurant where you had your first date? How about the location where you first told each other that you loved each other? Find a place that holds a special memory. It will automatically make your wedding proposal more romantic because romance, is really all about care and thoughtfulness. It’s a connection.

Then you have the words. What will you say to this woman that you want to spend the rest of your life with? It’s up to you. The pressure is on. I’ve found it works best when guys focus more on how they feel rather than trying to make something witty, clever, or romantic. She wants to hear about why you first fell in love with her, why you want to spend the rest of your life with her now, and some of the special memories the two of you have created along the way. Don’t make it more difficult than it has to be. Speak from the heart and she’ll be happy. If writing poems or songs is something that you do a lot, it’s okay to use one in your proposal. However, it isn’t necessary. If you aren’t an artistic guy, don’t worry. She already knows that about you and she just wants you to be you. That’s the best advice I can give to someone looking to craft the perfect marriage proposal. It’s about remembering the special moments that you’ve had together, it’s about speaking from the heart, and it’s about being you. After all, it is YOU she fell in love with.

One of the most difficult aspects of planning a marriage can be dealing with the family. Your mother would like to invite every member of her card club and your father wants to invite his friends from the office. You don’t know any of these people…and you wanted a small wedding. What to do?

It is your wedding. Always remember this. In the end, the final decisions should be made by you and your future spouse. You are the ones who are making this decision to spend the rest of your lives together.

That said, your parents and other family members may have valuable advice. They have been to weddings or been in their own. This results in life experience that may be more valuable than you thought. Anyone who has planned a wedding before will have tips for you on wear to find a dress, how much to spend on the cake, and who should take the photos. Listen to their advice and then make your decision.

When others feel hurt because you decided to go in another direction with your wedding choices, let them know why you chose what you chose. You don’t owe them an explanation, but sometimes just saying, “I chose to go with purple flowers because that’s Evan’s favorite color and I think that kind of rich, deep purple will look great in the month of November.” It helps to let them know why you made your choice so that they can see it was personal to you and didn’t have anything to do with them. In other words, you didn’t hate their idea and you don’t hate them, you just have a different choice that is more YOU.

“If I nag him enough, he’ll do it” – If I had a dime for every time I heard this one…

Sadly, women today think that they need to tell men over and over again what they need once they’ve tied the knot. Unfortunately, this is often because men don’t listen to what their wives are saying to them. It’s a vicious cycle and once it starts, it never ends.

The best way to avoid this cycle depends upon your gender:

Women: Listen to your man! Then respond and/or do what he asks. And try not to nag. Men hate this as much as your children do. In fact, other woman hate it too. Tell him once and if he was listening, then let it go. Or remind him once later on. No need to tell him every ten minutes. It only builds resentment on his end and continues the vicious cycle.

Men: Listen to you wife! Then respond and/or do what she asks. If you listen to her, she’ll listen to you. Respect her and she’ll respect you. See how that works? If she says, “Could you pick up Jimmy today from soccer camp because I need to go to the mall and get a present for his friend, Andy’s birthday party next week?” Listen and then answer her, “Yeah, I could pick him up. What time? Thanks for getting that gift.” Most likely you didn’t want to get the gift. You’re both doing something. If your wife continues to remind you to pick up Jimmy over and over again, let her know. “Honey, I heard you and I will remember.” Let her know that you don’t like the nagging. Let her know that it bothers you and it actually makes you not want to listen.

Follow this advice and and you’ll be on your way to a more understanding relationship! Better yet – he’ll listen and she’ll stop nagging.

You’ve probably been to at least one wedding where the couple personalized their vows. If you’re nearing your own wedding day, you may wonder whether or not you should personalize your vows. So, should you?

This choice is purely personal and should depend on what is meaningful to both of you. If it doesn’t matter to you, but your partner would love it, then do it! Marriage is all about give and take. It’s also about showing the other person that you care for them. Make his or her wedding day special by personalizing your vows if that would be meaningful to your partner.

For you. Does it mean something to you? If personalizing your vows would make your wedding experience more meaningful, then let your partner know. Tell him or her how it would enhance the experience for you and what you think it says about your relationship together. Most partners understand this and are more than willing to personalize your vows.

It doesn’t have to be hard. Just say what you feel. You don’t need to write the whole thing either. That’s what “personalization” means. Make it special and personal by adding your own bits to the original text. It isn’t necessary to rewrite the whole thing.

Whatever you choose to do, your wedding day will be one of the most special days of your entire life. It’s a time to make a commitment to another person and to promise to stick with them, through thick and thin, forever.

What I recommend to do if you have a fight with wife is to turn your normal strategy upside down.

Fighting with your wife?
Talking to the hand is not getting on her wavelength!

You’ve probably had fights with your wife when you were dating, so is handling it really so different when you’re married?  It can be.

Always remember to remain firm and assertive.  You do not want your wife to lose respect for you by thinking you’ll just agree with her on everything and do whatever she says.  You’re married because she was attracted to you for being a man, so do not think just because you and she are married that you suddenly have to agree with everything.  Remember, being assertive does not mean being a jerk.  It’s just means you understand your own boundaries.

If you find yourself having lots of fights with your wife, then you need to take a moment, calm down, and think through the situation logically.  Is she just releasing stress and you get goaded into having a fight?  Is she criticizing you and thinks you aren’t providing enough for the family?  Does she think you go with your friends too much.  You need to think about the fight from her perspective, but always remember to maintain your own boundaries and what you want.

Sometimes women see men as projects, they think they can change you the way they want to change you.  Now that you’re married, she may think that her project is complete, but then you remind her that you’re your own man.  She may try to push again to get you to change your behavior, but then you don’t go along with it.  In these cases, remain firm so long as your behavior is not having a negative effect on yourself.

Sometimes women think you spend too much time out with your friends, at the bar, or doing other things besides being home and caring for your family.  Now that men work more and have more demanding careers, it might be not possible for you to take less time at work to be with your family.  If you find that you almost never see your kids and your wife is left home alone a lot though, it might be time to rethink your career and make a change.  Think about what your life might be like in 20 year and really consider if your job is worth not seeing your children grow up.  This will help put things in perspective, and maybe your wife’s criticisms won’t seem so harsh.

If your wife is starting a lot of unnecessary fights and you’re wondering why your relationship is now filled with stress and strife, there may be infidelity afoot.  Sometimes, when one partner cheats on the other, they feel guilty for their infidelity and act out in their main relationship.  Keep an eye on your partners activities and make sure that this is not the case.

Now that you’ve learned how to deal with fights, I’d like to show you a short video that will help you rekindle all those blissful flames of desire you once had with your lover. It’s possible to rewind your relationship and make it better than ever before. You just need to know one simple secret and my FREE video presentation will show you how.

Three Tips to Help You Repair Your Marriage!

These are three guiding principles that help make marriages strong, healthy and complete. If you want to repair your marriage, then these three principles are your answer.  Yes, it can be just that simple!

The first principle is listening. Start to repair your marriage by really listening.

To be part of a happy marriage, you need to have excellent listening skills. Many people make the mistake of thinking of listening as a passive skill. It’s actually an active skill. It involves different uses of your memory, facial expressions as well as prompting words and questions based on what you have heard. You have to be present when you are listening. It isn’t a time to tune out or listen to your own thoughts.

Here’s an exercise.  The next time your spouse begins a conversation, try to make notes in your mind about what he or she is saying.  This gets you “in” the conversation so to speak.  Your spouse will notice immediately that you are interested in what they’re saying, and they will, in turn, be more interested in you!

The better you are at listening, the more your partner will share. The more your partner shares, the more ideas you’ll have for solutions to repair your marriage.

The second important aspect of a healthy, happy marriage is to create and use healthy habits that will enable you to repair your marriage.

Think about these habits much like a fitness program. We all know that the way to have a healthy body is by doing daily exercise.  If we let a muscle go without exercise too long, it begins to atrophy.

the way to repair your marriage and make it healthy is by implementing healthy daily habits.

I personally like to the park every morning and do my fitness outdoors. I make time for my fitness routine because I know how important it is for my body. With your relationship, you have to make the time everyday for your partner. You need to show your partner how much you care about them. They need to feel intimacy, closeness, physical touch and that you are truly sharing in honest communication with them.

The stronger your daily fitness in your relationship, the stronger your relationship will be and the wish to repair your marriage will become a reality.

And the third thing that is very important is developing a clear communication strategy.  It’s like an advertising firm.  You have a product you want to sell.  You want people to clearly understand why your product is the best, and why they should buy.  Relationships are very similar.

You want to have systems and structures in place for regular communication. You want to be able to share your difficulties and concerns with your partner. Then the two of you can work on these issues together as a team.

Follow these three principles and your marriage will be bullet proof.

When two people decide to join themselves together forever through marriage, they may worry about actually planning a wedding.   It can be a joyous labor of love, or a total nightmare.  You have to plan, plan, plan.

If you are planning a wedding, then you need to start putting it all together at least a year in advance.  This is really the minimum if you want to make sure your special occasion goes off without a hitch.  Some people even start planning their weddings two years in advance.  The reason for this is that you want to have your wedding when YOU want to have it.  You aren’t the only couple in the world that wants to have a spring or summer wedding!

First things first, get out those wedding invitations!  You want to pick a nice, memorable looking card, because all too often people misplace wedding invites even when they mean to go to the wedding.  That’s because the bride picked wedding invitation cards that were too bland and unappealing, meaning they get mixed up in old papers too easily.  Try brighter colors.

Pick out a great venue for your wedding.  If you come from a religious family, then a traditional church wedding is the way to go.  A lot of churches will require that you already be a member of the church or be related to a member to get married there.  Some churches will require marriage counseling before the marriage, or whatever other rituals there are for your respective religion.  Having a wedding in a church is classic, and will make for great wedding photos.  Other great venues include hotels and banquet halls.  Be especially sure to ask about occupancy, parking, as well as catering.

Catering!  How could I forget how important cater is to planning a wedding?  Who wants to go to a beautiful wedding with awful food?  I went to a wedding that was so-so as far as the beauty of the venue and how well it went, but the food was fantastic and everyone was in the mood to dance!  Be very picky with your catering company and be prepared to spend a couple weeks tasting their food beforehand. Any reputable caterer will have samples ready upon request.  Otherwise, how would you know what you’re getting?

Wedding photographers are equally as important, because they will enshrine the joy of your wedding to remind you for years to come how wonderful it was.  Professional photographers will be the first to give you examples of their work, but let me give you a word of advice: find a married couple to recommend a photographer for you.  I have always found word of mouth speaks louder than any advertisement in the yellow pages you could ever find.

Weddings require a mountain of patience and even more grit to properly plan.  Start as early as you can and start putting the blocks in place.  Your special day will be even that much more special.

if your marriage is teetering on the brink, then I can give you some advice that may just save it.

Without knowing your personal situation, my methods of how to stop a divorce may not work for you, but the principle is the same and so many people have come to me, asking for me to give them something they could use to prevent their marriage from falling to pieces.  Marriage is a blessing once people have it.  No one wants to see it disintegrate before their very eyes.  Do not despair and do not worry, there is something that you can do.

Part of fixing the problem is to be completely serious about getting your spouse back.  Some people just think that problems fix themselves.  They say that “Time heals all wounds,” but when it comes to preventing divorce, that adage is far from useful.  You’ve taken the first step by reading this article, but don’t think that you can save your marriage by not taking proactive steps.

Like most of my relationship advice, I always favor a calm, level head as far as problem solving is concerned.  This is very hard, especially when we’re trying to save our marriage. It’s an emotional time.  We feel lost and alone, maybe even angry that much of what we’ve worked for has now gone away.  Now is not the time for panic.  Panic will lead you to make a mistake.  Panic will cause you to push your spouse further and further away, which is the last thing that you want.

Find the problem.  Is it finances?  Is it the pressure of daily living?  Is it jealousy?  Has there been infidelity?  Do not let your emotions send you into a maelstrom.  Now is the time for clearheaded thinking.  If the divorce is impending because of your lifestyle, then change it, drastically.  If you have to make extra money on the side for a new vacation, or let your spouse take some time off work to collect themselves, then that’s just what’s going to have to happen.

A lot of the people who come to me for advice marvel at how simple it sounds, and wonder if it works.  After all, preventing a divorce should be magical.  It isn’t.  A pending divorce means that the fundamentals to your relationship have broken down.  You have to restore them if you want a functional relationship.  If your car’s engine is broke, no amount of sorcery is going to replace fixing the motor.

Same thing with your relationship.  If you’re not having enough sex, then read my articles about how to steam it up in the bedroom.  If you think there’s infidelity, I give advice on how to find out and how to deal with it.  Also, a word of warning: some relationships cannot be repaired.  Sometimes you do not want to prevent a divorce.  In fact, it might be better for you to just move on.  It’s all up to you though.

If you want to save a marriage then you need to remember what life was like when you were first married.  It’s not as hard as you might think!

If you want to know how to save a marriage, then you probably know that there aren’t any easy answers and everyone’s situation is different.  If you feel like you are at divorce’s door, then you may feel desperate and uneasy about life and want things to return to the way they were before your life took a turn for the worse.  Maybe you’re facing divorce because of infidelity, or maybe finances and the stress of work have taken their toll.  There are some things you should think about.

Part of remembering what life was like when you were first married is to rekindle the very emotions that strengthened your marriage in the first place.  All too often I get emails from people who have forgotten the magic of getting married, and just needed to be reminded of what brought them together in the first place.  I might have some unique ideas to do this.

Go back to the place where you first met.  Was it a restaurant?  Was it in a special place?  it’d be great you could relive the story of how you and your significant other first fell in love.  This will invoke all of the emotions about your marriage that have been dormant for so long.  They will awaken, and you can start saving your marriage.  You see, if you are asking yourself how to save a marriage, it means that you’ve forgotten the bedrock of your marriage, and you need to revisit it: literally.

You see, marriage starts off with magic and then it wanes.  It happens to everyone. The magic doesn’t seem to last forever.  We get into a routine.  This is practically the death of marriage.  We wake up, we go to work, and then we spend the evening doing mundane things.  There’s no adventure in that kind of life.  This is why a marriage soon loses its flavor, and then we are feeling distant and as if life has taken a turn for the worse.

Identify where you and your spouse are feeling the most distant.  Do you not see each other enough?  It’s easy to let your career or life pull you apart when you should be relying on each other for strength.  It might be difficult to be more vulnerable to your spouse, but in many cases, you can save a marriage by renewing the feels that you had for each other when you were first married, and learn to rely on each other as you once did.

Talk to each other!  You’d be surprised how many marriages go to pot because one of the spouses doesn’t let out their feelings.  Your spouse cannot help you if you say nothing.  Problems fester, and what could have been is always hanging over your head.  If you’re really wondering about how to save a marriage, then you need to communicate.

One sure fire way to save a marriage is to go to a marriage retreat.  The best retreats are the intensive ones where you and your spouse sit down with a marriage specialist, a licensed therapist, who will look at your whole relationship and use their experience and wisdom to help you both select the best life path.   These retreats are intense.  Expect to really delve deep into your marriage problems and even into your past.  Be forewarned, though, marriage retreats are not necessarily always going to save your marriage.  Sometimes, if it’s best that you and your partner separate, then the specialist may recommend that.

The key to saving a marriage is to remember all the different things that brought you and your spouse together.  It’s easy to despair and say that everything is going to fall apart, but there was a bond between you and your spouse in the beginning, and more many people, it’s all about rekindling the passion and the connection that made your marriage work in the first place.

If the love you have is real, then it will last through any bad patch.
