After losing a woman that I loved, and a marriage of almost 16 years, here’s the advice I wish I would have had:1. This is the most important and sacred treasure you will ever be entrusted with. Never forget that, and NEVER GET LAZY in your love. Protect your own heart Just as you committed to being the protector of her heart, you must guard your own with the same vigilance.Love yourself fully, love the world openly, but there is a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife.Keep that space always ready to receive her and invite her in, and refuse to let anyone or anything else enter there.3.Fall in love over and over again You will constantly change.You’re not the same people you were when you got married, and in five years you will not be the same person you are today.Change will come, and in that you have to re-choose each other everyday.
To avoid adding pressure, make sure that you know that you are both on the same path.
I recently received an email from a female reader seeking my input on a situation that she's dealing with.
She's a single woman without kids who's dating a divorced dad with a daughter.
I’ve had some real life experiences regarding this topic and I've learned somehow to navigate my way through the circumstances.
Now I have the privilege of sharing a bit of what I’ve learned on this blog. You might also know that my first marriage didn't quite work out as I'd hoped.
