    Hey Joe!

    A little off topic question but what are the biggest lessons you have learned, or the things you wish somebody told you earlier, about marriage, about fatherhood and about marriage while being a father? Any good advice for a fellow dad-to-be?

    Thanks in advance!

    At 19 became a father and was also married 26 now still married and 3 children. I never had my parents do to drugs and prison my goal in life is to give the life and be a father I wish I had. I’ve been in construction. 6 years same company and have always pushed to go further in life in return things seemed to fall into place. Just be consistency and hard working you kids will see that and remember. As far as a husband be loyal and don’t slowly separate I saw that happening when I was traveling for work and I was putting money before my family and marriage. Try to workout together and have fun doing it. Trust each other. Bust as many nuts as possible

    Man, I could listen for hours to you talking about this. 🙂 I have listened to your answer a couple of times now, it still resonates with me. Each time I appreciate it more. Thanks Coach, honestly.

    EB first off congrats! Being a father is the best thing in the world for me at least. Now every couple and/or parent is different and will go through different situations. So what I can say is this isn’t a right or wrong type of list, but what I have learned with being a husband and father. First and foremost marriage wise be honest with your partner, communicate, and support them emotionally, you guys are a team. Fatherhood I would tell you be patient, you will get frustrated at times but remember it is a baby/infant they are learning everything is new to them. Trust me I had my moments I just clean the floor and my daughter would look at me as she tossed food on the floor, drove me nuts, but you just gotta stay calm they have different ways of communicating. The most important fatherhood advice though is spend as much time with them as possible, enjoy every single second, it is important for both you and the kid. Leave you with two things for combining marriage and fatherhood. Get on the same page with your spouse on how you guys want to parent, no you won’t agree on every single thing, but the more you communicate the smoother it makes it. Finally one word BOND! spend time with both, put the phone down, turn the tv off, do as much as you can together, make memories and have some damn fun!
