21:57 GMT, 13 May 2012
James Kerr and Matthew Johnstone celebrate the A-Z of love. This week, M is for marriage.
Congratulations, you’re married. What an extraordinary gesture you’ve made — this gift of yourself. And what an extraordinary gift has been given to you.
The question is: how do you protect it It’s time to get practical and make plans rather than dreams.
James and Matthew believe marriage is a time to get practical and make plans
Schedule time together and imagine your life well lived. Is it a story of children, a cosy home, a warm welcome to friends and family Or treks through Egypt and the Serengeti
Think about children, attitudes to discipline, religion, schooling and who puts out the rubbish — it’s best to deal with the boring stuff at the start.
There are no wrong answers, it’s about what works for you both.
It’s your story you’re writing together. Try different ideas. Aim for the stars — but make plans.
Life is fleeting. The more you plan to experience, the more you actually will. And the best thing You get to do it with the one you love.
Plan to live a great life and start at the end. What would you want people to say about you at your funeral Morbid Not if you really want to live. What legacy would you like to leave
Write it down in a document of what you want to do with your life — and read it every day.
