The Secrets to a Long Marriage

The Secrets to a Long Marriage


Authors Matthew Boggs and Jason Miller interviewed couples around the U.S. that have been married for 40 years or more for their book Project Everlasting. Here are some key pieces of advice they found to keep your marriage fresh even as the fashions in your wedding video go out of style:

Marriage Masters believe that divorce is not an option except in cases of adultery, addiction or abuse. When you approach your marriage with that level of commitment, they believe you can overcome any obstacle.

Perfection doesn’t exist. The best partners practice patience and give the acceptance they want in return. This includes the little things like leaving the toilet seat up and the bigger things like parenting issues.

They talk about what is bothering them. Annoyances can turn into frustrations and frustrations into resentment. Marriage masters create an environment where open communication and honest expression is respected and appreciated. By airing their issues they are able to overcome issues and create stronger bonds.

Marriage Masters continue to date. They schedule intentional time to focus on their partner, without the interruption from work, kids, phones or anything else that would pull their attention away from each other.

Marriage is more about giving than receiving. In successful marriages, both spouses understand this to be fundamental. Marriage is 60% giving and 40% taking, by both parties.

Life is short – and Marriage Masters know this. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day so they intentionally (there’s that word again) make sure they enjoy their time together.

Marriage Masters respect their spouses. That respect creates trust, connection and deeper love.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package

 

1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
