Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

One thing for me (and this didn't come until about the last year) is I realize that the only changes that are going to happen to people happen naturally, with age and experience.

It's not possible (and, when it comes down to it, why would you try?) to change someone else. It's tough enough (sometimes impossible) to change yourself!

1!!!! Having done both, I agree.
But seriously....it's taught me that if aren't friends to start with, and have that mutual respect for each other, you aren't going to be friends later on when the hearts and flowers stuff has mellowed. You've got to have a solid foundation on which to build if you want it to last. Don't be sucked in by the fluff.

That what I want for dinner only counts 1 out of 10 times.

On a serious note, after 14 years of marriage I have learned very much. The main this is that I love my wife more now than ever.

What? If anything, I'd think that you could do it as often as you want. Oh, wait, is THAT why I never get anything done....
Marriage taught me that I am no longer the marrying kind. And it gave me a very healthy fear of committment.
We'll see what living with someone holds...I think it will be all good things...at least it is so far. It's definitely teaching me to be more flexible.

1. can't change another person, like you can't change the weather

2. marriage is hard work-there is no perfect couple. anywhere.

3. we all go into it with baggage. the baggage gets heavier as the years go by. let go of your baggage. travel light. carry-ons only!

4. nothin' like a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t and communication (no mumbling under your breath there buddy)

Hmmm. That sort of keeps a spark in my marriage. Oh how will I adjust when the baby arrives?!
TMI?
Edited to add that marriage has taught me a whole population of "lessons" and I am all the better for it. And oddly, they [the lessons] have made me a better wife.
