Quotes of The Day

I have been trying to think of what quotes I could share with you for most of the week.  Then I started to think of relationships, in particular the relationship between Husbands and wives.  And i remembered that i had a couple of items which, while not strictly quotes as such, they serve to illustrate the points that I feel to make.

The first is for the wives by a leading marriage counsellor by the name of Meg Whitcombe,

“Leading marriage counsellor Meg Whithcomb has labelled the nine fatal sentences no wife should utter if she wants to preserve her marriage.”

  •  Your just like your Father
  •  Why don’t you earn as much as . . . . .
  •  You spend more time with your mates than with me
  •  You watch too much TV
  •  You’ve changed since you were younger
  •  I’ll get a divorce. (Meg comments: “Husband might take you up on it.”)
  •  I’ll only sleep with you if . . . . .  (never use sex as a weapon)
  •  Not tonight, I have a headache. (Be honest when you don’t want to make love.)
  •  Your no good in bed.

 “Just like the Ten Commandments they are not earth shattering but the contain a lot of good sense.”

 

                                                                                    Meg Whithcomb

Speaking of the ten commandments I have a little quote that talks of the ten things that husbands need to do to look after their wives and families.  So I hope they help and give you all something to think about.

Ten Commandments for Husbands

 

  1. Remember that thy wife is thy partner, not thy property

 

  1. Do not expect thy wife to be wife and wage earner at the same time.

 

  1. Think not that thy business is not thy wife’s business.

 

  1. Thou shalt hold thy wife’s love by the same means that thou won it

 

  1. Thou shalt make the building of thy home thy first business.

 

  1. Thou shalt co-operate with thy wife in establishing family discipline.

 

  1. Thou shalt enter into thy home with cheerfulness

 

  1. Thou shalt not let anyone criticise thy wife to thy face and get away with it. Neither thy father, nor thy mother, nor thy brethren, nor thy sisters.

 

  1. Thou shalt not take thy wife for granted.

 

  1. Remember thy home and keep it holy.

 

 

While there are no hard or difficult things that we each can do to maintain our relationships.  It is the remembering that can be difficult at times.  Also doing the thing on a regular basis, not just occassionaly.

Well thats enough from me for now.  I bid you Adiu until next time.

I just thought I would share a few of the photo quotes that I have collected so far.

This is so true, we have all seen children imitate the things they see their elders/parents do. Usually they pick up our bad habits both vocal or actions first.  So when we are around children we should be very careful in what we say or do.  When I was just newly married to my first wife and we had our oldest boy my Father used to say that raising children was like training your pets, never let them do once what you don’t want them doing twice.

Haveing been through one divorce I know the value of this advice.

Resolving differences and challenges as they appear with a joint desire to solve a problem or challenge in a mutual and benificial manner is the best way to build your marriage.  Marriage is a joint operation, it is never a solo affair.

 

On the same theme.

 

Marriage - perfection

 

 Something we all need to keep in mind when we feel overwhelmed by events or situations in our lives

Marriage

Our theme for today is marriage; so here are a few quotes and sayings relating to that institution.  Having been married for over 18yrs to my present wife a lot of these ring true to me and some of them I have tried to make a part of how I treat my wife and the respect I have for our marriage.

First off, let’s start with a bit of humour:

 

It’s a myth that brides blush.  Actually their faces are just flushed with victory.

 

 

And this is so true; when you spend so much time with another person.

 

Marriage; the best method ever, to become acquainted.

                                                                                                Arnold Glasgow

 

In order for a marriage to succeed it takes total commitment on the part of both Husband & Wife in order for it to work. It takes patience; work and let’s not forget that there should always be held in remembrance by both of you what attracted you to each other or brought you together in the first place. Even though my wife and I have had our tough times we have also had our fun times as well.

 

It takes two to make a marriage a success and only one a failure.

                                                                                                Viscount Samuel

 

Like all relationships there needs to be a few ground rules, things we need to keep in mind in order to make things work.  So here is something for both the husband and the wife. First for us husbands:

 

 

Ten Commandments for Husbands

 

  1. 1.       Remember that thy wife is thy partner, not thy property

 

  1. 2.      Do not expect thy wife to be wife and wage earner at the same time.

 

 

  1. 3.      Think not that thy business is not thy wife’s business.

 

 

  1. 4.      Thou shalt hold thy wife’s love by the same means that thou won it

 

 

  1. 5.      Thou shalt make the building of thy home thy first business.

 

 

  1. 6.      Thou shalt co-operate with thy wife in establishing family discipline.

 

 

  1. 7.      Thou shalt enter into thy home with cheerfulness

 

 

  1. 8.      Thou shalt not let anyone criticise thy wife to thy face and get away with it.  Neither thy father, nor thy mother, nor thy brethren, nor thy sisters.

 

 

  1. 9.      Thou shalt not take thy wife for granted.

 

 

  1. 10.   Remember thy home and keep it holy.

 

 

And let’s not forget the wives; while the above is mainly for husbands in my opinion the wives can use some of the same advice.

 

Leading marriage counsellor Meg Whithcomb has labelled the nine fatal sentences no wife should utter if she wants to preserve her marriage.

 

You’re just like your Father

 

Why don’t you earn as much as . . . . .

 

You spend more time with your mates than with me

 

You watch too much TV

 

You’ve changed since you were younger

 

I’ll get a divorce. (Meg comments: “Husband might take you up on it.”)

 

I’ll only sleep with you if . . . . .  (never use sex as a weapon)

 

Not tonight, I have a headache. (Be honest when you don’t want to make love.)

 

You’re no good in bed.

 

Just like the Ten Commandments they are not earth shattering but they contain a lot of good sense.

 

 

 

 

As mentioned before marriage is not easy, you need to be patient with each other and also tolerant of each other’s habits and idiosyncrasies.  The love you have for each other needs to be nurtured, and you need to trust each other. Remembering always what attracted you to each other and what made you make the commitment to be married to each other.

I will finish off with this last quote, until next time.

 

Marriage . . . .

It is the ultimate test of maturity, and many find excuses for avoiding it because they know they are not up to the challenge, or capable of carrying on a mature relationship.
