At our church, Tuesday night, we played the “newlywed game” with two other couples. One couple had been married 26 years. One couple had been married 12 years. The Army Man and I have been married 9 years. And we won the game by five points! To celebrate we split a piece of red velvet cake. Hmmmmm…delicious!
A few of our silly answers. They asked me what values or qualities I had that the Army Man married me for.
As you can see I took this question very seriously.
They asked the Army Man what his ideal date was.
My husband is super in love with anything to do with electronics. So his answer isn’t really that shocking.
At the end of the game they asked each of us to give marital advice to the Young Women in our church. I said that marriage is much like a roller coaster. It’s intense, it’s scary, it’s fun, it’s exciting and you never know what’s around the next bend. So you need to make sure that your with someone who’s in it for the long haul and not someone who is going to bail at the first unexpected drop.
