Habits of Happy Couples: The “Thirty-Something’s Struggle”
Two days ago, my younger 20-something female cousin sent a text-link to my phone that read “20 Marriage Tips”. I must admit that I felt some type of way about the unsolicited text. It was as if she was alluding to the fact that I’m getting “older” and that I need to consider “applying” or researching tactics to get myself “successfully hitched”. I felt so insulted that I totally shunned the idea of clicking on the link, as this would give her notion, merit. After all, I do not need “Marriage Tips”.
Then on last evening, a good girlfriend of mine, who is forty-something, unmarried and without kids sent me a picture-text that read “MESSAGE àGod will send you the Love of your life!” I must admit, I felt some type of way again. My good girlfriend is NOTORIOUS for sending me text messages on life and living single while we “wait on our BOAZ’s.” Quite frankly, I’m fed up with her sob stories about why we still both are single.
The icing on the cake was this morning, as I’m catching up via twitter on whatever I missed during my nights slumber, I came across this title: “Habits of Happy Couples” which got my wheels a turning, or curious to see what exactly it is that I could do to be successful, whenever I DO get into a “situation” for example couples should talk to each other for at least 10 minutes a day, but not about work, family or the relationship according to the article on “5 Things A Couple Should Do.” Click here to see more on Habits of Happy Couples according to Oprah.com
