10 Secrets For A Happy Marriage

 10 Secrets For A Happy Marriage

by Carma Sirrine



Please check our FB Fan page, Tuesday afternoon for our winners! 🙂

I absolutely love it when we get to hear advice from people like Carma who have been married for over 50 years! What an incredible journey these two have been on!! I look forward to that day with my own hubby!! Carma lost her mother at a young age, she has come far, and she wants to share her success, as well as others, with all of you!! She has a very inspiring story and background. What an incredible mother, grandma, friend and I am sure WIFE! 😉

Carma’s book, 10 Secrets For A Happy Marriage, is a very insightful book on other marriages in this day and age. Short stories, of Carma’s friends and family, that share with the reader, the ins-and-outs of ways to create an everlasting marriage.  These are stories from real people!! I couldn’t even pick a favorite to share with you. There has to be at least one story in this book that everyone can relate to, with heartfelt ways to show unconditional love to your spouse.  My favorite part of the book, chapter 10. The last one, where she shares all her secrets…

Her stories and advice focus on the following topics…

  • Relying on the Lord
  • Making Decisions Early
  • Making Loving Relationships
  • Having TOTAL Commitment
  • Money Matters
  • Lighten Up Your Life
  • Having a Good Attitude
  • Sharing Thoughts and Feelings
  • Remembering the Best Times

These things are just a few of the many important matters we need most to make our relationships last. Carma has been very kind to share this book with us, and to allow us to give not one, but TWO signed copies away to our amazing readers!! So YES, you can own this book yourself!! It would be great for any couple, newly engaged, newly weds… well anyone!!! Hurry and enter, you are missing out!!!

  1. Well, I’m already a subscriber so I’m covered there. And taking the time for a date night is definitely one of the secrets for our happy marriage! Aside from that, though, our best secret is laughing together, especially at stupid or silly things we do, or our children when they find creative new ways to misbehave. Laughing instead of getting upset makes it a chance to bond instead of grow apart. =)

  2. I have been reading you gals in my Reader but am now officially a subscriber! A tidbit of advice someone gave me that has challenged and encouraged me – I am my husband’s helper, not the other way around. I don’t need to constantly ask him for help or become frustrated if he doesn’t automatically help me. I was made to help him and should have my life ordered in a way that makes this possible every day.

  3. I am a newsletter subscriber. Being a military wife I had to learn to accept that my hubby can leave at a moments notice and had to learn not to be angry with him about it-it has helped us out big time!

  4. I already am a subscriber to your newsletter! 🙂

    One marriage secret: Always make time for yourselves as a couple. Not sitting in front of the tv, but talking to each other. Communication, brings you closer together!

  5. I am a new subscriber for about two weeks now. My niece shared your FB page and I love it. I cant wait to use some of the ideas once my husband returns from his deployment overseas. And trying my best to tweak some for our long distance skype dates. 🙂 A couple of our secrets to a happy marriage is NO TV in the bedroom and we always make time to agree on a monthly spending plan together a week before the start of a new month.

  6. I am already a subscriber to your newsletter so we are covered there. I think that there are two big secrects to our happy marriage and those two are we always pray together first thing each morning, just the two of us, it sets the tone for our day. And the second is Date Night at least on night a week. It doesn’t need to big or even a money spender but that time is so important to let eachother know that you mean to eachother what you did in the begining.

  7. I am a weekly newsletter subscriber and reader- love it! And a small secret to a happy marriage- don’t sweat the small stuff- play Rock, paper, Scissors to make those little decisions 🙂

  8. I just became a subscriber even though I have had you on my google reader and on facebook. As I read over the other entries I have wondered what has kept my marriage strong. He is a full time student in Dental school and it has been torture, not on our marriage but on the fact that I LOVE to have him around and he can’t as much as he would like because he has to study so much. I think a ‘secret’ is to make your spouse your best friend. I make time every night to sit on the couch and talk to my best friend while he studies… it is weird but it works for us
