I know by now, you have heard, watched, and read all the yumminess surrounding a couple that got engaged on Saturday morning and was married by Saturday afternoon. Yes, #ForeverDuncan broke the internet over the weekend for a good reason: Love, Marriage, and Surprises!
I was crying like a big baby watching this all unfold. The husband to be planned the whole day to a T! I’m not mad, jealous or angry at anything he did.
It was PERFECT FOR THEM!
I truly loved what this guy did/pulled off. It fit him to a T. He knew his wife & he did what he was comfortable doing & knew she would love it.
Don’t you dare start comparing your husband to him.
Don’t compare your marriage to theirs.
Don’t say “I wish my husband would be more like him!”
Celebrate the Duncan’s but also celebrate what you have.
Comparison is a terrible trap & it will make you miserable + unappreciative of what your spouse does for you & the family.
If I didn’t respect this guy and how he took the time to know his girlfriend (now wife) and understood the importance of having real conversations with her, I definitely respect him for this Instagram post he shared.
He is basically telling you exactly what I’m telling you, set your own bar. Don’t try to measure up to his bar. He took the time to know his wife but most importantly,
“His intention was to please her beyond belief.”
Fellas my PERSONAL bar has always been raised for me. I studied my Wife. I listened to her even when she didn’t say a word. I wanted to amaze her by displaying my love to her in front of all of our friends and family. I had no idea this would happen. That wasn’t my intentions. My ONLY intention was to please her beyond belief. If not one person posted a video I would’ve been fine. You have your own bar. Step up. Black Man, they need us more then ever. #foreverduncan #blacklovematters #PeaceKing
As you celebrate this couple, be careful that you don’t subconsciously start wishing your spouse did more surprise things like this, or even was more like Alfred Duncan. Your spouse isn’t Alfred. So don’t expect him to do what this guy did.
Appreciate your spouse for who they are and not whom someone else is!
