Tomorrow night, one of the Pastors at Mountain Lake is tying the knot! I’ve gotten a sneak peek at the church, and it looks beautiful! Drew and Meagan will don their fanciest duds and stand in front of family and friends to make their vows, and then we’ll all celebrate with too much food….except for me, who will be watching my calorie intake (the holidays are over, and so is my love affair with fattening foods).
All the work that goes into the Big Day pales in comparison, though, to the work the couple will do over their years of marriage. Saying “I Do” means saying “I Will” love when I’m angry, forgive when I’m hurt, and apologize in humility. It also means I will find ways to celebrate my spouse, hold up their arms, and bear their burdens. It means I will be a partner to someone for a lifetime.
So, I’m wondering what advice you would give to the newlyweds? What have you learned in marriage that might help them? Serious or funny, what is your best advice for a happy marriage?
