It’s time for another installment in the fun Husband of the Blogger LinkUp Series we’ve been doing! If you missed the first 5 parts, you can find those here.
So far we have covered everything from what our husbands wish we knew on a variety of topics, to their opinion on men’s ministry in the church, memories from our dating days, the kind of legacy they want us to leave, as well as introductory info about them and what they do. Today, we are asking our husbands about the kind of marriage advice they have! 🙂
If you want to follow along with my blogging friends who are also doing this monthly series with their husbands, you can find them here:
And, as always, please feel free to participate along with us!
Let’s get started!
1. Based on our marriage, what advice would you give to a dating couple?
Much like your adolescent youth, enjoy it while you have it. You can do all sorts of things with all the free time you have. And, if you are like my wife and I were when we were dating, you don’t have the major expenses that you will have when you are wed. Your days are more free, as well as your minds. Live every weekend with each other as if you are anticipating a rough next week at work or school. When you get married, your minds and expenses may be too occupied with the responsibilities of raising a family home (with or without kids).
2. If there is one thing about our marriage that you feel needs work, what is it?
Our finances. You never really are prepared for all of the things you are responsible for when you get married. Your car (with gas, repairs, insurance, etc.), your home (with gas, water, electricity, insurance, etc.), and your health (with doctor visits, proper meals, insurance, etc.). And that’s just what’s on my mind, right now. Rebekah and I have learned (sometimes the hard way) to make better plans for our spending.
3. What, as your wife, can I be doing better in our marriage?
Stop being such a downer! In loving honesty, I have to tell you, sweetheart, that when something has even a 5% chance of throwing your world into disarray, you get all “What if this were to happen???” “What will we do if this doesn’t happen???” I realize that this may be the pot calling the kettle black, but I guess that’s why we have each other. When one of us gets stressed out, the other one comforts.
hahaha I burst out laughing at the first part of this! But, I can get that way sometimes. lol And, yes, it was also the pot calling the kettle black. 😉 But, like he said, that’s why we’re such a good team – there hasn’t been one time where we have been down and out at the same time. When one of us is anxious, the other is fine and can therefore lift us out of the problem.
4. What is one thing that you feel you need work on, as a husband?
My temper. Ok, I just want to clarify that I’m not an abusive husband. However, I DO have a war face when it comes to reacting to agitating situations. ‘Nuff said….
haha Not gonna deny that. 😉
5. What is the best thing about our marriage that you feel everyone should experience in theirs?
Our support in each other’s endeavors. When it came to me taking tests for the Air Force, my Rebekah was there to make flash cards to help me study. When my wife started her website, I started designing her website and the artwork for her articles. And what really makes it awesome, is that we both enjoy doing these tasks.
Yep! For sure! We are each other’s biggest cheerleader and do whatever we can to support each other in our God-given callings. That’s what marriage is suppose to be – a lot of teamwork!
Thank you for joining us today, and now go interview your own hubby! 🙂
