His and Hers: Advice for Jerry

His and Hers is a weekly discussion of a question or topic relating
to marriage. On Friday, my wife and I each write our thoughts on the week’s
topic. I invite others to do the same with their spouses as an exercise in
celebrating marriage.

Real-life friend TheWriteJerry is getting married tomorrow.
What’s one bit of advice you have for him and his new wife?

Mrs. Happy’s response

Never go to sleep angry with each other. Unresolved arguments
cause worse problems than sleep deprivation.

Curt’s response

Do not ever expect your spouse to make you happy. That’s
a responsibility too big for any human being. Only God can fulfill you and
bring you contentment. The most another person can do is make you happier.

  1. Wow – I’m honored to be the subject of a THH column!

    Thanks for the advice :-)

    You two have been an inspiration and a source of terrific insights into how to build a marriage.

  2. AFTER MANY YEARS OF EXPERIANCE, SEEING FRIENDS LIVE IN CONFLICT AND SEETHING ANIMOSITY, I HAVE A SUGGESTION THAT WILL PROVE INVALUABLE. YOU AND YOUR WIFE SHOULD KNEEL DOWN, HAND IN HAND AND PRAY FOR GOD’S WISDOM IN MAKING CHOICES THAT IMPACT YOUR DAILY LIVES TOGETHER. THEN GET UP, LOOK DEEPLY INTO EACH OTHERS’ EYES AND AGREE THAT THE TOILET PAPER SHOULD ALWAYS ROLL FROM THE TOP!
