    This at 37 years.

    If I was married to anyone else I would have been Toast. But I had a plan, Dependent Daughter, For those that Served you understand. Met her, Married Her, Got her Pregnant, She took care of the house. I took care of everything else.

    Threw out my Military career there was a 20% divorce rate in the Squadrons I was assigned to. Who better to understand a Military Life and the Commitment it takes to live it.

    Plus she lets me get away with MURDER!

    They are all crazy you just decided what level of crazy you can handle just as we all did.

    Discuss money early. In our house all money goes into a joint account to pay for basics, house and vehicles, kid, retirement. Joint CC for group purchases, groceries, gas, etc...

    We also give ourselves an allowance each month so she can't bother me with what I spend my money on. Big items are both agreed upon. Guys trips, my money, family trips group money. She also works. No way she is sitting around the house doing nothing.

    She grew up poor and is a great saver. Also an incredible communicator. I got lucky.

    Working on 8 years together 5 married but marriage didn't change anything for us she is nearly 10 years younger which helps. I have a bit more knowledge on life things.

    1. Listen, don't hear, listen.
    2. Accept being wrong at times, deep breaths and cool off.
    3. Due to #2, go to bed mad if need be. During a fight, disengage. It's amazing what a night of sleep will do to your perspective. Realize no one will win in the heat of the argument, because no one will rarely back down. Just disengage and sleep on the couch/different bed if need be. It's amazing how well "cool off" time works. Both see things a bit different.
    4. Say "yes" when she/he thinks you'll say "no".
    5. Worth repeating "Listen, don't hear, listen."

    Most important, tell him/her you love them EVERY day, and give them a hug. Don't be afraid of the "L" word...no matter how you were brought up or how "un-manly" you think it may be. One may think "I don't have to say it, he/she knows", I suggest you let them know by saying it.....they could be gone tomorrow...

    Started dating my wife when I was a junior in high school. We just clicked from day one. Married at 19, 26 years, 3 kids, couple houses later still together. everybody has there own formula. Best advice I can give when your frustrated/irritated/pissed off ask yourself one question. Can you imagine life without her? If that answer is anything but an absolute NO move on.

    This only works when your not happy so go pick a fight with her and get good and mad at each other let us know the answer...

    I married a shrink. I lose every argument, but for those that know me it was pretty smart on my part. Oh she’s also from Montana. Always look for a girl from Montana. They are raised right.

    Funny. That targeted ad didn’t pop up for me... I keep getting “fish costs rica” in its place. But then again maybe our web browser histories are not the same?

    Best thing you can do is let her explore and be free. WP is a great place to start. I think I met her. LOL

    Marry a woman that has a few no-good, lazy, good-for-nothin', SOB men in her family (brothers, uncles, cousins). Makes you look like a catch.

    (Or marry Irish...same thing.)

    I'll sum this up.
    Met in 91
    Married 95
    First kid 2000 last one 2007.
    All this is spot on, some stand outs let's keep it simple.

    Crazy hot matrix this is spot on I have played up one side and down the other of that and it can get scary ugly if your not careful!

    Keep being you and you will be happy let her be who she is and she will be happy.
    Mature and grow together and together you'll be happy.

    Don't fuck her friends and definitely not her sister, rock solid advise!
    The party is over time for the good dawwgs to lay on the couch.

    It truly is easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission, trust me I'm a professional.
    But you'll have to make up for it in other ways.
    If it's meant to be it will be
    Every couple is different lots of naysayers about my relationship some of them are now divorced and pay child support.

    But what the fuck do I Know she may follow the last kid out the door on his eighteenth birthday and never look back.
    But it's been a good run.
    If I'm lucky she will leave me my dog and my boat.....

    But knowing her probly not.

    While I'd certainly agree with these words of wisdom, my further advise would be:

    If you truly need someone to give you this advice, then you shouldn't be getting married.

    Get a Fleshlight instead of a wife.
    You'll be glad you did.
