52 years Married to the Same Woman

Our Ten Commandments for a wonderful 52 years of marriage.

  • Anger is never acceptable in our communication, and in our problem solving and dealing with our frustrations with life and each other, not even a little bit.
  • We can communicate frustration and discontentment with each other, but never in a way that dishonors or tears down, never scolding or shaming.
  • We both have flaws and defects in our character and behavior, but we both are so much better than we were when we first got married, so let’s major on the positives, we appreciate each other’s strengths.
  • We do not restrict the others freedom to serve, to develop our giftedness, or to be involved in our church. We will not be overly dependent on our mate so that we become jealous and controlling of their time away from us.
  • We never deny sex to each other, even if we are tired.
  • We are always eager to serve each other, no matter how long the “honey do” list.,
  • We do not correct our spouse in public
  • We pray with each other, and for each other.
  • We will forgive each other quickly of any offense
  • We will laugh at each other’s dumb moves, but never humiliate.
