Marriage Advice from a 19 Year Old Who Has Never Been Married and is Completely Unqualified

This past weekend, two of my favorite people tied the knot! Adam and Aimee, I’ve been thinking a lot about you two since the wedding and felt the need to say something. This was the best way I could do so.

I know that I am an unmarried, single, 19 year old. ¬†However, ¬†I feel as though I have some good advice up my sleeve. I guess you can decide that though…

Here goes nothing!!!

First of all, remember how happy you make each other, always. Because at some point Adam you are going to do something stupid, and Aimee you will too (maybe not though you are basically perfect). In those moments of anger and frustration, remember the happiness and live on through that.

Get a dog. I highly suggest this because all of the best couples have dogs. Plus dogs are like children but honestly cuter, and less work- plus they do what they are told.

Always talk it out. Be honest because you guys aren’t in middle school anymore. Be adults in your relationship. Be honest, don’t hold things back, and maybe have a talking stick if you think it might get heated.

Fight if you need to, it’s healthy. Just remember to kiss and cuddle afterwards.

Cayla is a really cute name for a baby, think about that in the future.

Have a life together, and a life apart. You are two wonderful souls who flourish together, but remember that it’s good to have a life of your own too. Be each other’s best friends, but don’t forget your other friends because we like you guys too.

Go to concerts, travel the world (maybe not in a van anymore), meet new people, eat foods you’ve never tried before, live somewhere different, step out of your comfort zone, adventure together- always.

NEVER WATCH A NEW EPISODE OF A SHOW YOU ARE WATCHING TOGETHER BEFORE THE OTHER ONE DOES. This is why people get divorced.

Finally, always remember to love each other first. Love each other’s flaws and talents. Love the things they have made themselves into, and what they are without trying. Love emu sounds and shaky hands. Love it all.

I’m so excited for you two, congratulations again.
