I've been caught up recently in so many relationship things... I found a new fascination with all things relationshp/wedding related. I love to plan things naturally... people say I'd be a good events coordinator. It's something that I may look in to eventually. It probably has to do with my attention to the tiniest detail. Anyways I was recently reading an article that gave the recipe for a successful marriage... so I thought I'd share
Secrets to a successful marriage:
- Meeting through friends
- Marrying after three-and-a-half years of courtship
- Walking the aisle at age 31 for the groom and age 29 for the bride
- Keeping the spark alive with 3 calls, e-mails or texts during each workday
- Saying the L-word at least once a day
- Sex 3 times a week
- 4 Kisses a day
This conclusion was reached after surveying 3000 couples. click HERE for the article
I would add God to the mix... not trying to overspiritualize it but I think that having a close relationship with God is key. Im working on that... sortof! God help me! :-)
are you in a relationship? Do you want to be in one if you aren't? Do you know what your love language is? A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to host a TERC session that talked about love and relationships and in it, I mentioned the bestselling book by Dr. Gary Chapman... The 5 Love Languages. I havent read the entire book but I will... hopefully... at some point. But there's a short quiz you can take... that will give you the results

My primary Love language is Receiving gifts. The least of it is Words of Affirmation. The thing about this is that it can apply to any relationship... even friendship. I love receiving gifts especially ones that have some thought put into it..
What's yours? Do share! :-)
