First Comes Love
"Will you marry me?" asked my boyfriend of five years. Then he flew overseas to serve with the U.S. Army for the entire next year.
Two weeks after he returned, during a snowstorm on New Year's Eve, we became husband and wife. As we drove from the ceremony in our new VW Beetle, we thought we knew a lot about married life. After all, we were in love!

Yet through the years we discovered a few tips about how NOT to do love and marriage. I'm sharing these tips with you this Valentine's Day.

I invite you--whether you're a newly-wed, an exhausted middle-ager, an empty-nester, or still waiting--to skim through these tips and notice what catches your eye. Even small revisions in the way we do life and love can make a difference.

Really! Only God is perfect!
So we can relax and stop over-trying, over-helping, or over-controlling in order to make our mates and marriage-relationships be "just right." I find this such a relief!
