Imagine someone asked you for your best piece of marriage advice. And then imagine you could only answer in three words. What would you say?
That's the premise behind the latest viral craze on social media - #MarriageAdviceIn3Words - and even the celebs are joining in with this one.
The Mail reports:
More than 1,500 social media users took up the challenge within 24 hours, and their snappy suggestions ranged from the profound and the practical to the amusing and the bizarre.
A handful of celebrities even waded in to join the popular discussion, with two revealing their advice during an appearance on Comedy Central.
'Eventually you'll die,' stated actor Seth Green, while comedian Craig Ferguson quipped: 'Deny deny deny.'
My personal faves include Apologise with shoes' and 'No hot nannies'. I'm also a little surprised that parenting-themed pearls of wisdom weren't more prevalent. 'Share parenting equally' strikes me as a pretty solid piece of marital advice. (I'm writing this while my husband puts the kiddos to bed...)
But seriously, I'm pretty stuck when it comes to suggesting my own contribution. Three words is a pretty tough challenge but I think I'd go with 'Don't stay angry'. Why? Because every married couple will have their ups and downs during the course of their relationship, and we all wind each other up and lose our cool from time to time.
But I reckon if you nurture a bit of forgiveness and practice the art of saying letting go of niggles and differences, the course of true love might run a little smoother.
