Each had used the letters of their name to advise the future wife on how to keep her man happy and content in the years to come.
The 16th of June marked my 13th wedding anniversary and 17 years of being together.
So, I thought I’d give the same style a shot.
Victoria said to Marc I do
In a pair of beautifully painful shoes
Caught one hell of a roller coaster ride
Travelled the wide world from side to side
Oh, but the dress was a terribly beautiful thing
Really overshadowed only by the diamond ring
In everything we’ve been through and through thick and through thin
Adventures are something we always find ourselves in
But when we forget to look when we leap
Remember that somehow we land on our feet
Under it all when push comes to shove
Companions and friends with a whole lot of love
Even when he snores. Which he knows I abhor.
And here is my advice for other wives…
Voice your opinion, but listen in return
Influenza for a man is a deadly concern
Cook chicken soup and be a good nurse
To ensure he does the same for you in reverse
On his birthday buy lingerie with red ribbons and lace
Remind him why he married you in the first place
In spite of the not insignificant cost
A man prefers sex to a pair of new socks
Be prepared to forgive dirty laundry on the floor
Rapidly deposing of rodents is what husbands are for
Unless he won’t in which case don’t
Coffee is essential for marital bliss
Eschew everything else but do not forget this
