125-years will teach you a lot about a person.
25 years — that’s how long Missy and Jase Robertson have been married.
During those two and a half decades, Missy says she’s learned tons about how to do marriage and how to be in a relationship. And she hopes to pass that knowledge down to her kids.
On her blog, she told the story of what her dad said to her right after she got married in 1990. Her son Reed recently married Brighton Thompson.
“… He [my dad] stopped me in the hallway of our house one day during that festive week, took me by the shoulders, faced me head on and stated, ‘Missy, I need to tell you something very important,’ it definitely got my attention. He looked me dead in the eyes and said, ‘When you get married on Friday, you can’t come home.’
What? Where in the world did this come from? Maybe I didn’t hear him correctly. So, I asked him to clarify.
Again, he said, ‘You are not welcome to come back to this house to live after Friday night.’
