Things my mama taught me, part 1
Dear Marc, it's late in the evening. I'm sitting here, typing invoices while thinking about marriage. Not even my own, non-existant marriage, but my parents.
The other day mom told me "I was only 25 and to promise someone my love for eternity, it just seemed like forever. I told your dad he could have me for ten years, then we'd see. More importantly, I had him promise me he would never utter the words "I told you so" in our shared household".
"That's your most important principle regarding your 35-year old marriage?"
"Yes. What are you doing?".
"I'm taking notes."
What's your best relationship tip?
