Marriage 101 Real advice from the real experts
We have recently had the opportunity to reflect on the life of Gordon B. Hinckley. Among other qualities, President Hinckley was known for being a devoted and caring husband. He and his wife Marjorie were happily married for nearly 67 years.He had a keen understanding of the keys to a successful marriage. Here is some of his wise counsel:
“I am satisfied that happiness in marriage is not so much a matter of romance as it is an anxious concern for the comfort and well-being of one’s companion. Any man who will make his wife’s comfort his first concern will stay in love with her throughout their lives and through the eternity yet to come” [Source]
Although I’m tempted to think that his counsel is only meant for husbands, I have a feeling I could learn a bit from it as well.
