Since our little brother got married a little over a month ago we thought we would make a printable to celebrate their big day.
Many times when you go to a bridal shower they have you give the bride and groom marriage advice. I always give the same, boring advice . But this past April, the prophet of our church, President Thomas S. Monson, gave one of the greatest pieces of advice I have ever heard. He said, "Choose your love, Love your choice." Isn't that the best advice for any married person whether you be a newlywed or married 50 years.
In today's world it seems that marriages that last seem to be fewer and fewer. Yet if we all took this advice I know that the divorce rate would be lower. Making the choice to marry is the easy part, it is loving that choice that can be difficult at times. When your husband leaves his dirty clothes on the floor or watches too much sports or plays the Xbox too much, just remember that you chose them and that you love that choice. Its amazing how once you start only looking for the good in someone it eventually becomes easier and easier to see more good in them. It's when we start finding fault with one another that it becomes harder to see the good or why we fell in love with them. We all have our faults and most can be dealt with and still be happy.
Because I loved this quote so much I decided to print it out and hang it in my bedroom. It will be a great reminder to me when I have those days that I become a nitpicking wife. I made it in a variety of colors. If by chance none of the colors work for you let us know and we can personalize it for you. The size of the prints is 8X10 but can be printed in 5X7 as well.
