It’s easy to get wrapped up in the superficialities that seem to make a marriage or relationship sizzle. We want the fancy flower bouquets, grand romantic gestures, and as many little blue boxes as anniversary dates will allow.
“You deserve to be treated like a queen” is unquestionably the rallying cry of hopeless romantic females everywhere.
But what does that really even mean?
Rather than posting up on her throne with her tiara, blogger Nikki Pennington is giving women everywhere a down-to-earth perspective on what it really looks like to be treated like a royal—and it’s chock-full of marriage GOLD.
Read her powerful Facebook post in full below:
“Girl you deserve better than that.
What do you mean he didn’t bring you flowers on the first date.
You deserve someone who treats you like a queen.
I think you should dump him and find someone who buys you something for your anniversary, someone who knows your worth.
I’ve been with my husband for fifteen years and for our one year anniversary he took me to McDonald’s and bought me something from the dollar menu because it’s all we could afford.
He definitely didn’t bring me flowers for our first date or second or even third.
He hasn’t taken me on any lavish trips or bought me expensive gifts for our Anniversary and the truth is these days we barely remember the day much less if it’s our anniversary.
You see those aren’t ways a man treats you like a queen.
