Marriage is a team effort.  It’s you and your spouse together against this crazy world of pressures and changes.

It’s not ‘you against me’, because the two of you are an ‘us’.  What happens to one of you, happens to both of you.  Remember that your spouse is your best friend and advocate, not your enemy.  Just like a sports team, cheer each other on enthusiastically. Instead of begrudging each other’s chores, do them together – “You get the spaghetti & I’ll get the sauce” and the last minute company fiasco is over in a flash – don’t forget to high-five each other!  Way to go Team!

PS – just like a sports team, don’t forget to brag about how awesome your spouse is to others 🙂
