What Do You Do When it Doesn’t WORK?

Have you ever tried everything the marriage experts suggest and it doesn’t work for your marriage? Have you read some of my blog posts and thought, “That’s easy for you to say, but I tried it and it didn’t work for me!”

Don’t you wish your man came with a manual that listed a numbered sequence of instructions (with a money-back guarantee for exchange of defective models!)? If only we had a list of instructions:

1) Keep well fed

2) Provide plenty of exercise

3) Water when dry to the touch

If he were a plant or a pet, we might figure him out! If he had an engine, we could hire a mechanic. Instead, he is a complex creation, with a whole set of expectations, dreams, needs, fears and desires. . . and he has to live in a relationship with a complex woman with her own set of expectations, dreams, needs, fears and desires. . . (bathed in estrogen)!

It takes a lot of WORK to make a marriage WORK. For the next few blog posts, I’m going to explore The Work of Marriage. I hope you’ll join me – and tell your friends! You can email them this post so they don’t miss any of the posts for this interesting topic.

Join me as we get to WORK!
