My husband and I have really enjoyed your podcast this year in helping us study the Come, Follow Me curriculum. I listened to this one alone when he was out of town and I came back to reread the transcript--it was so powerful. I plan to share it and discuss with him to help us strengthen our marriage as we approach our 25th anniversary this month. What beautiful counsel that can be widely applied by many married couples, not just newlyweds. I definitely think you should make it into a booklet of advice for bride and groom!

Thank you so much. I'm going to share this with each of my married children and also with unmarried prior to their big day. Thank you so much for sharing, you are influencing our family.

Thank you Maurine for the most beautiful "how to" marriage advice letter I have ever read. My daughter gets married in the Logan temple in four weeks. I am sharing your words with her in the hopes that right from the start, she can build a happy marriage. I am also copying it for myself (been married 23 years) to reevaluate my own marriage. I can't thank you enough for including this advice in your podcast. Heaven sent. Bless you for all the good you do through your magazine and podcast.

Great ideas for married couples, young or old. One practical thing that is often not mentioned is determining early the division of labor between a husband and wife. Not knowing what "your job is", even if shared, can lead to later bad habits developing and general chaos or misunderstanding and resentment. Talk early and often!

Yes, absolutely make that booklet, only make it for grooms as well as brides!

If you were to produce a booklet, even though this letter was to your daughter, it should be produced as advice to both the husband and wife. I think, culturally/historically, the expectation of making a marriage work has been placed on the woman. It should be an equal expectation.

Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to begin...or end. All I want to say is this was exactly what I needed to hear for my marriage of 2 years, its great advice for all ages and stages of marriage. I live on your every word each week to study and ponder about the come follow me lesson of the week. Thank you two so very much for the time you take doing these podcasts and for giving us the script to boot!

Maurine, yes you should make a little pamphlet of your letter to your daughter. It will be an ideal gift to those who are about to get married on their wedding shower. I really enjoy listening to your podcast on Come Follow Me. I am learning a lot from you and Scot. Thank you so much. More power to all what you do in bringing the gospel to light.

My vote is a big YES! A booklet to give to newlyweds would be ideal. I was thinking as I listened, "how can I get this message to the newlyweds in my life?" Your example of love and growth in your marriage can inspire us all. p.s. I am so grateful for the transcript!!!

Maurine, this was a beautiful letter and testimony of Celestial living and loving. I felt the love and respect that i see you and Scott have for one another. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
