Last weekend we had a bridal shower for Teresa and I had this brainstorm that as we ate, all the wives could give her advice based on the length of their marriage. I called it Sage by Age.
We probably had 20 married women at the tables. Their advice was amazing and honest and funny.
The first wife was Rachel (5 years) and her advice was to argue naked and never go to bed angry.
The middle wife was Teresa’s mom Lorri (26 years) who said she does go to bed angry but maybe she’d try the naked thing and see if that helped.
The last was my mom, married 50 years in August.
I filmed her. I should have started earlier, but the whole thing was off the cuff and then it was so good that I was listening and learning and it didn’t occur to me to film until it was my mom’s turn.
But I got my mom and it was worth it for that alone.
Share with the brides and wives in your life!
