Ah! The month of June is busting out all over! Graduations, Vacations, Outings, Road Trips, Picnics, and anything else that comes to mind. What a fabulous month. While families are getting ready to embark on these treks, there are some who are quite busy planning the most important event of their lives. It has to be, not only well planned, but also, well crafted. Nothing can go wrong. Everything has to be perfect. There’s no room for error. You are probably wondering; what in the world is he talking about? Well, we are talking about… June Weddings! The bride to be wants her wedding to be the best, the most talked about, and the most memorable event of her life. Of course, there will be other events which will demand much of her, in the ensuing years. “What about the Groom,” you may ask. Well, no one seems to pay much attention to this member of the wedding party, or other ones as well. All eyes will be focused on the Bride.
That day finally arrives; the ceremony could not have been better, the reception has been a success, and the overall unbelievable event, has captured the essence of the bride’s joyous occasion. The happy couple embarks on their honeymoon, and upon their return, settle in for what they perceive will be, the ride of their lives. Nothing can go wrong. They are committed for life. The love they have for each other has never been equaled, or so they think.
As the first year goes by, this couple who had been in so much love, begin to feel as if the love they once felt for one another, seems to be lacking. Hey, let’s face it! This happens all the time. But, is there a remedy for this? Of course! Let me address this to the new husband. When you first married, you could not wait to get home, take your bride in your arms, and of this I am certain, you told her time and again how much you loved her. So, when did you stop professing your love for her? Did you get tired, did you think this was passé, or did you feel that she knew how you felt? Have I got news for you! You never stop! This is the love of your life. You need to constantly tell her how much you love her, but not only that, you need to tell her also, that you are still in love with her! She needs to be reassured, every day, for the rest of your married lives. You cannot take her for granted, nor should she feel that she is just there as a fixture. She is your best friend, so tell her that she is. No one, not even your family, kids, friends, job, or any other entity, is more important than her. Remember who she is!
Hey wives, you are also included in this. When the love of your life expresses his love for you, be reciprocal. Don’t just stand there, like a Venus De Milo Statue, you know, the one with no arms. Put your arms around him, and whisper sweet nothings to him. My wife and I have been married for quite some time. After all these years, she knows how much I love her, and that I’m still in love with her. She is very much aware of my deep feelings for her, because I tell her on a daily basis, that I love her, and that I’m still in love with her .
So here’s my advice to you guys: LOVE HER TO PIECES!
