Old Dogs Can Learn New Tricks In Marriage …

car-door-79744319490_xlargeA few years ago when Lea and I celebrated our 20th anniversary, I decided that I needed to do something new to show her how much I still loved her. Not anything drastic, but just something new after 20 years to say, “You still rock my world.” So I decided on our 20th that it was time for me to start opening the car door for my wife every time she got in the car. So, before I got in the car I’d hoof-it around to her side, catch her door, and then come back and get in on my side. It’s something that our parents and grandparents used to do that our generation has kind of given up.

I’ll be honest after 20 years of NOT opening the door for Lea, it was not an easy habit to just learn and be successful at from day one. It took a while, but yes, an old dog can learn new tricks. I’m happy to tell you that 5 years later I’m one of those guys who regularly opens the car door for his wife.

I started all this with the hopes of showing my wife that she means more to me today than ever before, but what I also learned is that I’ve taught my boys something about marriage. Oh yes, my boys have watched me do it so many times for their mother that now they regularly beat me to their mother’s door to open it for her. I love that my boys are learning how to treat their future wives.
