Elder and Sister Bednar shared their biggest piece of marriage advice, what first attracted them to each other when they met, and tips for how single Saints now can find an eternal companion at a date night at BYU-I.
Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Susan Bednar, shared lessons they've learned in their marriage and in overcoming difficulties, answered a few questions and shared some advice Tuesday at Brigham Young University-Idaho during a date night hosted by university President Clark Gilbert and his wife, Christine.
Elder Bednar pointed to how much work goes into a marriage when he was asked how he and Sister Bednar have grown in their marriage.
“Marriage is fun and demanding,” he said. “It can be sad, and it requires relentless work. Early on we tried to figure out how to do that work and enjoy that work.”
Elder Bednar said one thing that has helped them in their marriage is to learn how to address problems when they don't always see things the same way.
