On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.
Recently, my wife and I attended the wedding of our friends’ daughter. Both the bride and groom read beautiful personal vows to each other. While expressing their meaningful commitment before all in attendance, their tears indicated they truly believed what they shared.
Marital complacency is often what starts the slippery slope to unhappiness, and sadly, even divorce at times. To overcome complacency and never take one’s spouse for granted, I think every couple would do well to communicate three additional vows at the wedding ceremony and even regularly throughout the marriage.
Share with your spouse these three vows: 1) Today, I will avoid complacency in every area of our marriage; 2) Today, I will not take you for granted; and 3) Today, I will be a girlfriend/boyfriend to you in order to help you feel valued just like before our wedding day.
