Day 3439 – How To Have A Good Marriage

The other day, Bret asked “what’s our secret?” i.e. how do we have such a great marriage? Here’s a few things we realized.

The biggest thing is communication. From sharing when something is bothering you, to not letting anything be off the table, to sharing even when it won’t be fun in the moment. We’ve learned a lot about each other’s communication style too – it’s SO important to know when the other isn’t actually listening. Sometimes I just want to share an idea without input. lol, like, this may not be a great idea, but I wanted to share it. Then later asking for practical input.

Another big secret is actually talking about the end. I think keeping in mind that you will go at some point helps you embrace the now. Almost every goodbye is laced with a “incase I don’t see you again, it’s been a great life.”

What are your marriage secrets?
