After 5 years of marriage and over 10 years together, here’s some marriage advice that we’ve learned along the way. We’re not perfect and we don’t claim to be.
If you’ve been lucky enough to meet Alex, you know he’s a special guy. He’s the reason I know that true love exists and the reason I love documenting love so much. I want every single human to find their version of Alex; their version of peace.
As a wedding photographer, I hear all of the cliche pieces of advice, some of them, very valid. But, I’ve got a few things to add. Here are mine and Alex’s ten pieces of practical advice for getting your relationship to grow to ten years (and hopefully many, many more).
Honorable Mention: Read the book Eight Dates together. This book was recommended to me by my best friend. It changed the way we communicate, for the better. This book has 8 different topics with 8 date suggestions to do that go along with the theme of that specific chapter. This book is great for ANY phase of life, not just married couples. The only catch? You have to come to each date ready to be vulnerable. https://a.co/d/5ktBLSp
You don’t have to agree with any of this marriage advice, but these are what have kept us growing and loving each other more and more every year.
