Day 14 :: Just Be Friends


Similar to yesterday’s post, Theresa shares one thing that has helped build her marriage of 35 years:

“We have always tried to bring a level of fun and humor into our marriage.
We enjoy being friends and that is very helpful in a marriage.
When raising our two boys we really tried to bring a level of “funness” and laughter to each day –
even when things were gloomy.
There is always something to be happy and joyful for… always!
Life will never be boring that way either. Marriage is a long road, but can be fun when you find humor in the bumps.”

~ from Theresa, married 35 years

Having known this couple personally for several years, I can definitely attest to the fact that they have fun in their marriage! There is nothing quite as refreshing as being around a married couple that’s still knows how to “just be friends!”

How is your friendship with your spouse?

    This is one thing that I focus on too! πŸ™‚ When we have time or make time for it, we have so much fun together! πŸ™‚ That is one reason we have prioritized taking out of town trips, yes we could use the money or time to stay home and work on the house, etc. BUT getting away from LIFE allows us to just have fun together again like we did when we were dating and first married! πŸ™‚

    Thankful to be friends with my spouse too! πŸ™‚

    I think you should post your dating, engagement, marriage story as one of your days – or at least snippets with pictures. πŸ™‚ I don’t know the story of how you met, got engaged, etc.
