To get married you had to have a marriage licence. Here’s the thing though…


This is the only license that you are never required to renew. You are not required to go to class, spend time and money, or become more informed to grow.

On the other hand you have to renew your driver’s license, retake the written test and sometimes take the driving test.

There are many professions that require continuing education: the legal field, auto technicians, financial services, the medical field, educators, engineering and others.

For many couples having their marriage license and saying “I Do” on their wedding day is it. You’ve arrived and your marriage is going to be great.

Unfortunately, you haven’t arrived. We know from our own experiences as well as the many couples we’ve coached over the pat 6+ years.

There is always room to grow in your marriage. There is always a way to improve your communication, your sexual intimacy, quality time spent together, your finances, and other areas of your marriage.

When you stop growing in your marriage, when you stop learning your spouse, you open the door for disconnect.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about why it’s important to renew your marriage license even though you’re not required to do so.

  1. My husband and I were married on the beach in Florida in 2007. Part of the wedding package was a picture of us with a “Marriage Certificate”. Our names, the date and location. (Do not worry, we do have the Marriage License in a safe place.) We have it framed and displayed in our bedroom so we can see it every night before we go to bed and every morning when we wake up.
    I had some close family friends that framed and displayed their Marriage License by the door of their bedroom. This gave me the idea and when we were married I told my husband I wanted to do this too.
