I want to share to you lessons that life taught me in my marriage relationship. And some of the things below here are the ones that I could still remember from the book and from our marriage workshop last year entitled “I Choose Us.”
- Be vulnerable. Vulnerability is important to have constant love connection with your partner. Being vulnerable is when you express yourself to your partner in a respectful and loving way.
Instead of blameshifting, admit your weakness. Instead of expressing in anger and rudeness, express in humility. Instead of pride and ego, ask for your needs and apologize when necessary.
Children are the most vulnerable people. Imagine how a child expresses his feelings. He doesn’t keep it. He humbly tells you honestly and lovingly how he feels. He says it in a manner that just melts your heart. No bitterness, no nagging, no blaming, not shouting, not cursing, no bad words and no violent reactions.
We tried applying this in our marriage. Our conflicts became easier to solve. And apparently, there were lesser conflicts to fix.
2. Pray together. There is no greater bond than God. When you pray together it makes you humble before God and more humble to each other. When we pray, we are more honest to our feelings so hearing your partner’s prayers lets you know your partner deeper.
3. Know your partner’s love language…and fulfill it. Show your love to your spouse in a way that best connects to him or her. How does your partner feel that he’s loved? I feel loved by words of affirmation, by physical touch and through gifts. My hubby feels loved through servitude. Love is a need and a person is fulfilled when his needs are met.
We all have different experiences and our lives teach us in different ways. Do you have tips that you could share to us?

The getting richer effect has expanded… by LittleBard95
Do you use an android phone to talk to your loved ones? I bet you do. But with your current phone plan, can you maximize your use of your android?
The power of Android is within your reach. Unlimited use of text, call, web browsing, picture messaging, and instant messaging is for only $45 per month. Plus use all the apps you need and all the games that you want to play. These benefits only come straight from Straight Talk.
Aside from the nationwide coverage, Straight Talk’s International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service. So you can call from your home, mobile phone or office phone at low rates.
Switch to Straight Talk phones without a contract and cut your phone bills in half. But it doesn’t sacrifice the quality of the service. Cheaper phone bills but with excellent reception or connectivity. No contract, no surprise bills and no credit checks. Heavy phone users could call it the “All You Need Plan” with 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data. Amazing isn’t it?!
Feel Richer with Android. With the savings you could get from Straight Talk, it could take you to more holidays with your hubby.
Good news! Hubby has work already.
A superior who was also laid-off from his current company flew from the US and put up a new company here in the Philippines. His boss hired him to do their websites at an hourly rate. It’s good coz he’s home-based.

This is good for maybe two months so he’s still planning to go to Singapore when his passport arrives from the mail.
Cold Christmas is waiting.
