This blog is connected to my Twitter account @forbetterorwhat, where I publish links, quotations, advice and random thoughts several times a day.

I took a quick look at which messages had been retweeted the most in recent months. Here are a few of the messages that resonated with people enough to make them want to share. It's not surprising that a Gottman quote heads the list!

  • "Learning to cherish another person and allowing that person to cherish you is the greatest blessing of life." John Gottman
  • Keep your promises. Even when it's inconvenient. Even when no one is watching. Keep your promises. All of them.
  • Don't let sex become the last thing on your to-do list.
  • Marriage gives us unlimited opportunities to discover our best selves.
  • Your spouse wants to hear, "I would do anything for you."
  • Rejecting sex makes your spouse feel rejected as a person.
  • Think about the consequences of your actions before you act.
  • Be the kind of marriage partner you would like your children to have someday.
  • You don't have to do everything together. Just the things that matter.
  • When you cheat on your spouse, you are cheating your children, too.
  • Your spouse wants to hear this: "You are the only one I want."
  • Little daily love boosts are more important in the long run than the occasional spectacular event.
  • Be generous in giving compliments and gracious in accepting them.
  • To get a better marriage, start by becoming a better spouse.
