Family traditions that strengthen marriage
“My husband and I have birthdays with a difference of two days, all 7 years that we are together, we are leaving for these few days. Only we two and no one else: brut and lobsters, walks in parks, romantic films in languages that we do not understand. Each time we choose a new city or even a direction: for example, from Lower Normandy to Lorraine, From Andalusia to Catalonia, we somehow even flew to Miami for only two days, although this, of course, was a pure adventure. Once we missed - in the year when our daughter was born, it became very unfortunate to leave her to the nannies and grandmothers and we canceled the trip at the last moment. But next year we had a really romantic weekend in Italy. ”
“At the dacha in a special place we have a family tree. Every summer, we supplement it as best we can, my husband digs out various facts in the archives, I pester the older generation with questions. I don’t know how this works, but during quarrels I should remember this piece of paper, where of course we and our children are, as I calm down almost immediately. Apparently, what is written with a pen ... is indestructible for our family. "
“Who is like, and we go to the cinema in any incomprehensible situation! Andrei and I are still movie fans, it seems that over the past three years there have not been a single premiere that we would have missed. It started when we were overcoming a crisis with relationships. Then the idea came to us: if someone is dissatisfied, he goes immediately to buy tickets for the film. And took root. The crisis, thank God, is behind us, and we have acquired a pleasant joint habit. Well, we always have something to discuss ... "
“Every year we celebrate the birthday of one of my husband’s great-grandmothers. We note very broadly - all relatives come to our country house, uncle flies from Omsk, nephews come from St. Petersburg. We call it our personal Thanksgiving, prepare the duck and all sorts of goodies, have fun, chat. One important point: her great-grandmother has long been dead, moreover, I myself have never seen her. But even in her lifetime, she knew how to gather and unite the whole family, and as you see, she does this even after death. ”
“For almost 20 years, my happiest day of the year is March 8th. All these years, the husband gets up early and prepares incredibly delicious eclairs. The smell of fresh pastries spreads throughout the house. And I wake up happy and proud for my cook. Now our grown-up sons are already helping dad, complementing the recipe, decorating the table, making delicious coffee. I won’t be surprised if such wives will await their wives sometime ”.
