Marriage “Words of Wisdom” at My Daughter’s Wedding

by | Sep 17, 2023 | 0 comments

            Two days ago, one of my three daughters was married to the love of her life. It was an amazing day for the two of them and everyone else who was able to attend. One of my other daughters was married almost two years ago. I tell you this because this is the second time that I was given the honor of giving a father’s talk at our daughter’s wedding. The speech for the wedding two days ago was like the first one, but in some parts it was different. The one thing that I kept the same was the list of some things to keep in mind when you are married. I offered these “words of wisdom” for my daughter and her husband, for any married couples in the crowd, and for myself and my wife. I feel that these are very appropriate when a couple is married, and you want to make your marriage the best that it can be. I am not claiming to be a marriage expert. I am a teacher, father, husband, uncle, and son who wanted to share a few marriage ideas with my daughter and husband, and with everyone who attended the wedding. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. I hope and pray that you and I take these to heart so that you, myself, and anyone else who reads this can make their marriage the best that it can be. Enjoy!

            Christina and Alex, here are a few words of wisdom for a married couple:

  • “Love is a choice. Make the choice to love each other every day.”
  • “Forgive often. Each one of you will make mistakes. Forgive each other often.”
  • “Listen to each other. Sometimes you just need to sit down and listen to the other person.”
  • “Communicate with each other. Tell the other person how you feel.”
  • “Even when you are tired, tell the other person, ‘I love you.’”
  • “Pray early. Pray often. Pray together.”
  • “The little things you do for the other person mean a lot. Make sure you do them.”
  • “A successful marriage takes hard work. Work hard at your marriage.”
  • “Always be there for the other person. You will need each other every day.”
  • “Keep God FIRST in your lives. He will be with you every step of the way.”
