  • Get over yourself. Your whims and preferences are not that important.

    That's what I wish it didn't take 13 years to figure out.

  • I was given a lot of advice about relationships....some of it good advice that I wish I had listened to. I've found that most people, myself included, learn from experience.....My biggest piece of advice I would give is to find someone who is confident and comfortable in his own skin and you be the same before starting a relationship...nobody is perfect, of course, but broken people don't make good relationships...

  • That it's not about how much you get out of a relationship, it's how much you put in. Either way, marriage can be so hard.

  • I wish I'd known that it's incredibly hard to get a person to change. Marriage is tough and both people need to be willing to change and grow for it to work.

  • That in your marriage you are partners, no one is in charge, it has to be equal or it is no good.

  • If you are married and a man other than your husband shows an interest in you - it is only for one reason, and one reason alone.

  • in loveAs a former athlete, that marriage is a lot like a sports team. You'll have great, good and bad seasons, but if you keep putting in the work and trying to improve, you'll win in the end. Corny, but true for me.
