No one has gotten married (except me) for over a decade in my family and now, we have 2 weddings in 2 weeks. I met my cute nephew’s fiance, Kristen, this weekend. As she opened her gifts, we were asked to share advice with the bride. At first, I laughed at the thought that I was about to give advice on marriage, but then I realized that I have learned a thing or two about marriage in my life experience thus far. I shared the counsel from Elder David B. Haight’s son (who sealed us in January) to speak with a soft voice and hold hands. These 2 simple things, when we remember to do them, help us have so much peace, harmony and joy in our home and relationship.
