1: What are 3 things you value most about your marriage?
The companionship, our children and the team work we do.
2: What has been the biggest adjustment for you being married?
For me it has been learning, understanding and respecting my husband’s ideologies. We grew up in different countries and completely different way of living. So our ideologies are very different. He grew up in a very small town in Central America with the very basic needs and I grew up here (US). Even though I didn’t have luxuries I did have a little more than he did with many more opportunities. So, that makes us see situations differently.
3: What was the best advice someone gave you for marriage?
I’ve been giving many advices from different people, and I don’t remember the exact words of the one that stood out the most but I do remember it said something like ” if you put your spouse other first, your marriage will last our life time.”
4: What have you done to get through your tough times in marriage?
Think and pray. Every time something difficult is going on I turn to my Heavenly Father, no one can give me better guidance.
5: What has been the most enjoyable part of being married?
I would say everything, the happy and difficult moments. They have made our marriage stronger and we’ve gotten to know each other more.
Any other comments: marriage isn’t easy, I’ve read that marriages only have happy Moments. We did not married perfection but someone with lots of potential. If we turn to Heavenly Father, always staying close to him and asking for his guidance he will be there for us, making our lives better and marriages easier.
