The Art of Manliness -- Advice to the Newly Married
'DON’T LET ANY TROUBLE GET IN BETWEEN YOU! -- The accent is on the word BETWEEN. -- All the trouble in the world is not going to bother you so long as it is on the outside. You’ll have enemies, but none of them can hurt you if they do not get between you. -- You’ll have disappointments, bereavements, disillusions, failures, regrets, mistakes, angers, and resentments; and you can resist seven tons of such stuff provided you stand together and don’t let any of it seep in between your two hearts. -- Be partners. Be allies and swear never, either one of you, to make a separate treaty with the enemy. -- Don’t have secrets one from the other. Organize your own oath-bound secret society now. Lock yourselves in, and the rest of the world out, even darling mother-in-law. -- Beware of the Intimate Friend to whom you tell things about your wedded companion. Said I.F. has broken up more couples than any other known snake. Be your own Intimate Friends. -- Gossip, tattle, and tell all you know to each other all you please, but not about each other to any third party. Remember that Three is a fearful crowd when it comes to married folk. The corners of the Eternal Triangle are both sharp and poison. -- When reverses come, or even poverty, loss, or debt, just cuddle up closer together, and you can laugh at them. -- Don’t let the darkness of dark days get in between you and separate you. Don’t let even your children, when they come, and I hope there’ll be a lot of them, get between you and alienate you. That sometimes happens. -- Remember — one thing only I’ve told you — write it down and hang it up on your wall: “There’s bitterness in this world, but it can’t make us bitter if it doesn’t come between us.” You’ve sworn “til death do us part, and for better or worse.” Stick to it!' -- No Thirds: https://stantatkinblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/15/the-making-of-a-third
