Long-time Southern Weddings readers may remember the sweet, smart, thoughtful, insightful Katie Brown of Marriage Confessions from a number of places–namely, through tips for wedding planning at the end of V4 and the Real Weddings introduction in V5. In V6, we were grateful to have Katie grace our pages once again with marriage advice she’s learned over her eight years of being married to her husband, Chris, and blogging about their life along the way.
After eight years of marriage, I have learned that the key to a happy marriage is flexibility. Throughout our marriage, we have been through many ups and downs, peaks and valleys, and everything in between. Learning to ebb and flow together – hand in hand – is what has helped us grow and move forward as a couple, and now as a young family. We pray and we plan and we prepare, but ultimately, we let it all go and just enjoy the ride. I think we are able to do that because we trust each other and we trust our God. After that, everything else is just details.
