All I Need to Know For a Happy Marriage I Learned in Kindergarten

All I Need to Know For a Happy Marriage I Learned in Kindergarten January 12, 2018

Remember Robert Fulghum’s book All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten  ? Life seems so complicated, but he boils it down to a few elementary principles on how to live, what to do, and how to be.

Like life, all you really need to know for the foundation of a healthy marriage,  you learned in kindergarten.

Here’s some kindergarten wisdom for marriage:

 

Years ago, children learned about God in school. Even though kids aren’t taught about God in school today, a relationship with Him should be at the top of the list for any healthy marriage.

  1. This is good!
    The only things I can think of to add are: 1. Do your work, and 2. Keep your word. I don’t know if that is out of the scope of Kindergarten or not, though! 🙂
