Adventurous Marriage

Matthew smiling over flowers Hi, I’m Matthew and I’m in love with my wife. Madly. Passionately. We have a great marriage and it’s only getting better. I believe you should have the same.

I also believe that Marriage ROCKS! It’s the best adventure that I’ve been part of. (Yes, it’s even more exciting than that time I rafted down a white-water river so flooded the professionals were scared and took the day off.)

We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness and call it love.
~Dr. Seuss

You’re in the right place if you share any of these beliefs about marriage (or you don’t yet, but want to):

  • Marriage is good.
  • It is a journey, an adventure.
  • Marriage makes life better.
  • It takes work, dedication, and motivation.
  • There is always more to learn.
  • Marriage grows you, as a person.
  • It is simple – but not necessarily easy.
  • Marriage is fun!

Here I write about the marriage journey, about having more fun and better adventures together. It’s written from a husband’s point of view, predominantly for husbands. A place to share lessons learned, resources discovered, and adventures experienced.

Want an even better marriage? Here are some great tools to get started:



  • 5 Love Languages (Kindle/Paper) – I re-read this every year, just as a quick reminder.
  • His Needs, Her Needs (Kindle/Paper) – Another that I read every year.
  • Wild At Heart (Kindle/Paper)
  • Captivating (Kindle/Paper)
  • 15 Minute Marriage Makeover (Kindle/Paper)
  • Simple Marriage (Kindle)
  • Sticky-Note Love (PDF) – by yours truly

The number one cause of marriage problems? Finances. Here are two great guides that have helped my wife and I confidently build a stable monetary foundation upon which we live our lives.

  • Financial Peace (Kindle/Paper)
  • I Will Teach You To Be Rich (Kindle/Paper) – yes, it sounds spammy. Ramit does a great job of breaking down financial mumbo-jumbo and provides simple action steps with each chapter.
