There are 3 activities you need to share before you are married. Why? Because if you do not share special bits of romance to show your love, then what have you to look forward to on your wedding anniversaries?
It is pretty crazy notion to think the 3 activities I’m about to share with you can matter but after a failed 19 year marriage, I can tell you I regret not sharing any of these 3 things with my ex- husband.
Number 1: The dream wedding
I am not saying that having a big expensive wedding guarantees a happy marriage. However, if you dream of walking the aisle in a beautiful gown and he says no for whatever reason, then you could be headed for regrets. Do not give up your dream wedding because he said no. Your wedding day is a day to celebrate and share your love and a beginning to the rest of your life together as a couple. Compromise before marriage goes a long way in how the marriage may work. Your dream wedding should be the celebration of the love you share and not the start of an argument (or a regret later on in your marriage).
Number 2: Dancing cheek to cheek
Sharing a dance at your wedding, at a bar, or even at a social gathering and holding each other close. Intertwined in the moment and swaying back and forth. Feeling his breath on your neck and his hand slide down your back…what is better than holding each other close?
Sharing a dance with someone can connect you emotionally and physically and the song is just the icing on the cake. This dance (and song) will be the memory that can reconnect you later on in life if your marriage becomes stale. Who cares if you can only rock each other in your arms- just listen to the music and get lost in each others’ embrace.
Number 3: Sharing a song
Sharing a song can trigger memories throughout your marriage that can stir up the feelings of love. How many times have you heard a song and immediately remembered where you were and who you were with? Do you have that song that brings out the emotions of your marriage. Singing the song to each other and realizing how in love you are and how lucky you feel to have this person in your life. What better way to remember your love than with a love song.
You need to share these 3 activities before you are married
Music can make your heart sing and bring out emotions that either make you smile or shed a tear. That is why I know now that every marriage needs a love song that reaches your soul. It reminds you of the love you share. Even if you cannot dance, you still need to be held by your partner and sway to and fro on a dance floor. Hanging on to each other ignoring the rest of the world. And do not forget to have that wedding in that special dress that makes you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.
For those couples who share a song or the first dance at your wedding, you can understand the the meaning when your song plays on the radio. A song, a dance, and a wedding are the special things you celebrate for the rest of your life.
Tell me what you think about these 3 activities I think every couple needs to share when getting married. It is not easy to openly admit my marriage failed after 19 years, but I look back now seeing how much I missed never having a wedding, a dance, or a song. We never even celebrated our anniversary or our love with family and friends. I accepted and lived with the disappointment for many years
