If you've seen my recent emails, you know that my family moved recently.
I've been telling folks it took us three hours to move, but will take three months to unpack and settle in.
As much as I hate it, that's the reality.
Here's the marriage association: no matter how festive the wedding day, luxurious the honeymoon, and exciting the start of the marriage; you're gonna be settling into the marriage relationship for a while.
How long? I can't give an exact timeframe. But, I can tell you that it's not gonna be as short as you think it will be (or want it to be!).
I keep thinking about the 7 Rings of marriage outlined by my friend Jackie, who you heard from two weeks ago. Two of the rings in particular seems to really describe the settling process: discovering and persevering.
During these phases of marriage, you're going to discover things about your mate (or experience them in a deeper way), and you're not going to necessarily be thrilled with the reveal. This is when persevering is absolutely key to a working marriage.
The longer I'm married, the more I see just how important these rings are.
You can't help but discover, but persevering is a choice you have to make on a continuous basis -- especially when things aren't rosy.
If you'd like to learn more about these rings -- and the others -- take advantage of a sale Jackie's currently offering on his site Happily Married Couples.
He normally sells the 7 rings course for $47. Currently he's offering it for only $19.
