Marriage Advice From Our Readers

The best way to understand marriage is to ask real people for their experiences. We asked our Facebook followers to tell us their best marriage advice! Here are some of the amazing responses we got from them!



Erin Watson When there is ever an issue, take time to see it from the other side BUT never lose yourself or put away your true feelings. Once some real time has been taken to contemplate the real issue(s), talk it out and don’t rehash it again. You can agree to disagree, even in a marriage.

Brandy Bramblett  Choose to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other. Love is a commitment, not a feeling.

Mindi Scroggs Greenland The real secret to happiness in marriage is having two tv’s.

Christie Rebstock There is nothing wrong with admitting you’re wrong or being first to say sorry after a disagreement. Honor your spouse not your pride.

Brandy Bramblett Never consider divorce as an option. Remember that a “perfect marriage” is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.


Liliana Hovancsak A hug and a kiss will solve any problem!!

Katrine Johannesen Rubenstein When I got married my MIL took me aside and said,” I’ll only give you one piece of advice: pay in cash and throw away the receipt, he’ll never know.”

Talisa Flynn Always communicate your expectations! Almost all fights are caused by unmet expectations.

Tina Wise Sanders The best advice I ever received came from my dad. He told me that it is the wife’s job to always make the husband feel like he is in charge, even though we all really know that she is!

Brandy Bramblett Realize that a strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time. It’s usually a husband and wife taking turns being strong for each other in the moments when the other feels weak.

Jessica Reeves  My husband gives the best advice to future husbands (jokingly of course): You can be happy or you can be right. 😂

Shyla Petty Kesselring Always speak positively of your spouse to others. Always!

Deco Marj The grass won’t be greener on the other side, if you water your own grass.

Rebecca Elizabeth Lyons Don’t go into marriage with all these expectations.

Shana Herrin Laugh a lot, NEVER go to bed angry even if you have to stay up all night and remember no one is perfect so there is no perfect marriage!! Marriage is hard work but so worth all the hard work. We have been married 25 years next month so it must work!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Brandy Bramlett Don’t put your marriage on hold while you’re raising your kids or else you’ll end up with an empty nest and an empty marriage.

Shyla Petty Kesselring Always speak positively of your spouse to others. Always!

Rebeca Durant Evans Get a house cleaner, it’s worth it! 🙌🏼
