The Art of Marriage & $20 Applebee's Gift Card Giveaway

This month my wonderful husband and I will celebrate 13 years of marriage!  He often times works on the road and sacrifices so much for our family.   I honestly can't imagine what our life would be like without him.

Did you know that the divorce rate among military families has increased 42% since 2001?  That proves that military families are sacrificing so many things for our country that most people take for granted! 

Both my father and my grandfather both served in the military.  My grandparents were married for 60+ years and my parents have been married for 37 years. 

Why you will love the The Art of Marriage Ops Blog App:

  • Spread The Word! Did you or someone you love serve in the military?  Help us spread to word and share the app on your Facebook or Twitter!  Use hashtag #marriageops! The more people who realize this is an issue, brings us one step closer to helping more families!
  •  Donate! Text OPS to 80888 and donate $10.00 to help our men and women in the military strengthen their marriage by attending an event showcasing The Art of Marriage! Less than the price of two cups of coffee! 
  • Five Date Ideas! It’s not just military men and women who need help with their relationships. Here are five great inspirational date ideas that will help bring you closer to your partner!

It is very important to stay connected with each other and stay in constant communication and be open with each other, so we make sure we have time after the kids go to bed, to spend some time talking with each other about our days.
