Say I do every day for a strong marriage at Won Without Words

Continue to say I do every day to each other, to build a solid marriage of commitment and love.

Practice these daily I Do’s

  •  I do forgive you.
  • I do want to spend the rest of my life with you.
  • I do think you are the most interesting man I know.
  • I do find you attractive.
  • I do choose you again and again.
  • I do keep myself only unto you.
  • For better or for worse, I do.

To every I do, there is an I don’t.

Some things you’ll have to say I don’t to:

  • I don’t choose to take offense.
  • I don’t want to say that hateful comment.
  • I don’t keep a record of your failures.
  • I don’t compare you to others.
  • I don’t fight for my rights.

To every I don’t, there’s an I do:

  • I don’t get to do whatever I want whenever I want. . . because I do get to spend time with you..
  • I don’t get to spend all the money how  I want. . . because I do want to help you succeed.
  • I don’t have any privacy . . . because I do enjoy sharing my most intimate moments with you.
  • I don’t get any time to myself. . . . because I do never want to be lonely again.

[quote]Always remember the power of I do; it’s all it takes to sustain a marriage, through the grace and favor of God’s covenant keeping power.[/quote]

  • Yes, I do want to drop everything and run to town for a burger.
  • Yes, I do want to go fishing with you!
  • Yes, I do want to be with you!

And Marc, I still do!
