Nano’s Recipe for a Happy Marriage

with Ron Deal | February 17, 2020

My late grandmother's recipe for a Happy Marriage. 1 cup consideration and courtesy. 2 cups praise. 2 cups human kindness. 1 reasonable budget. 1 cup contentment. 1 cup blindness to the other's faults. Flavor with frequent portions of recreation. Stir thoroughly and remove any specks of jealousy, temper, or criticism. Sweeten with lots of love; and keep warm with a steady flame of devotion. Never serve with a cold shoulder or hot tongue. And finally, add in 1 gallon faith in God and each other.
