Relationships Require Effort

I had breakfast with a young man before Christmas and he mentioned that he was waiting for “a relationship to come along that was no maintenance.”  Did I mention he’s single?  My response to him was “…yeah, good luck with that!”  I don’t know anything that is NO maintenance.  Especially relationships.  What I’ve learned so far in almost 23 years of marriage is compromise and building a relationship (is that maintenance?) is not an endpoint…it’s a process.

Relationships require an effort.  And at TT Patton I try to put in the effort necessary to build relationships with my clients; especially new brides and grooms.  I love to hear their stories of falling love, how they met Mr. or Miss Right, how they told their parents.  It’s the beginnings of relationships (inter-family) that will grow for years to come.

So have a seat.  Take off your coat.  Mom, relax.  First let’s get to know each other.  Then…maybe…when you’re ready…I’ll show you some beautiful samples.  Or maybe we’ll get adventurous and start with a blank sheet of paper and create something just for you.

Dude may have called it maintenance….I call it the start of a new relationship. But what do I know….I’m just a married ol’ lady and he’s…well…..just… young.
