What is your marriage story? How did you meet and how did you know when you fell in love? What were the things that brought you together? As you identify your marriage story and what brought you together, you can also identify the things that will keep you together.
You can start by asking just what were the qualities that attracted us to one another? What made our courtship worth pursuing? What differences did we encounter in that early season of our relationship and how did we deal with them in order to continue building our marriage story?
These questions and more can help you to create your marriage story. Someday when your children ask you how you met or why mommy married daddy, you’ll be able to share your story with them. They’ll love hearing their parents’ personal marriage story and it will provide a wonderful aspect of security to them
Further, consider this assignment: both husband and wife take the time to write out a list of the ten best traits that we each admired about one another when we said, “I do.” Many years ago Mary and I did this and then placed that piece of paper in our wallets. On different occasions we have pulled out that list of ten reasons to remind ourselves of our call together and the reasons we fell in love in the first place.
