I came across this article and I think it’s important that we remember that they our children are always watching, no matter what age. I am sure we had our opinions on our own parent’s marriages, and know exactly what we wanted to take from them and mimic in our own marriage, and what we definitely did NOT want to mimic.
Now that we are approaching the times when we see our sons and daughters getting married we can only pray that we have been good role models for them through the years! Maybe it’s time to take a moment and examine your relationship? Check out these 10 characteristics below, how many do you and your husband demonstrate?
10 ACTIONS THAT KIDS LEARN FROM THEIR PARENT’S MARRIAGE – by Doug Fields
When I speak on marriage, I’m always asked if I intentionally taught my kids about marriage.
The answer is yes… and, no.
Yes, there are times when we’ve talked specifically about marriage (either ours or ones that our kids have observed). But, for the most part, Cathy and I have been wise enough to know that our kids are constantly watching and learning from us. Our actions (both good and bad) are always teaching them about marriage.
I would be thrilled if my kids had a similar type of marriage that Cathy and I share… it’s definitely not perfect, but we’re both very proud of what we’ve developed over 30 years.
