Always Room To Improve. Marriage Quote from Married and Naked

Finish the Race!

Happy Get Naked Friday!!! My favorite day of the week!

Friday is the day when Married and Naked focuses on health and fitness. Because, let’s face it, self confidence is what it’s all about.

Tomorrow I will be running my 4th 5k. 

For years I had said that I would run a 5k.  Even had a picture of a runner on my vision board.  But I never did.

Two years ago, I ran my first race.

I welled up in tears when the gun went off at the start of the race.

I welled up in tears when I crossed the finish line with my husband and daughter cheering me on.

I was so proud of my self. So proud that I had actually done it. I had finally followed thru and did what I said I was going to do.

Once you’ve had a little taste of participating in these events, you start to crave more.

Self Sacrifice is the Secret to a Happy Marriage ( or is it? )

Recently I went to a wedding.

The officiant of this wedding had some advice for the newlyweds.

He told them, “The secret to a long, happy marriage is self sacrifice.”

Is that true? Did I agree with this advice?

I thought about it so much that I decided to put it out to Married and Naked Facebook followers to see what they thought. Did they agree with the officiant?

Here were some of the answers I received:

Love all of the awesome feedback that I got.

What do you think? Is self sacrifice the secret to a long and happy marriage?

Let me know in the comments below.

Date Night 20 Questions – Free Printable

For my husband and I, date nights have become a staple in our marriage. 
At least a couple of times a month we take time for just the two of us.  We head to dinner, a movie, or (most often) we stay at home and send the kids to nana’s house for a little while and we chill at home together.
Over the last few years we have come to realize how very important it is to have this time together.  Our marriage is thriving and part of that is because we have made time alone as a couple a priority.
A little while back I wrote an article on Three Date Night Rules for Married Couples.  
Today I wanted to reiterate those rules and offer you a fun little gift for your next date night.
Here is the recap of the rules:
