Some People Are Just Not Built for Marriage Advice

Find out if you are one of them or not.

YES!

NO!

Marriage advice is for couples who:

  • Have a good marriage and want to make it the best it can be
  • Love and respect each other
  • Want their love to grow stronger each year
  • Enjoy doing things together
  • Are open to new ideas
  • Would like to create or fine-tune a mutual vision for their marriage
  • Have the personal integrity to keep their word
  • Recognize that life throws everyone a curveball now and then
  • Want to work as a team to address life’s challenges
Advice is NOT adequate for couples who:

  • Have serious or chronic problems
  • Are crippled by substance abuse, rage, depression, grief, or illness
  • Suffer from physical, mental, or emotional abuse
  • Are not trustworthy
  • Do not respect their partner
  • Can’t hold a rational discussion

This Website can NOT help you. You need to work with a licensed therapist or counselor. A good place to start is with a marriage-friendly therapist.

Everything in life works best if it is fine-tuned, properly maintained, and given an occasional tune-up. Cars, equipment, homes, buildings, and our bodies all work best when kept in proper working order with regular maintenance, an occasional tune-up, and repairs when needed.

Marriage is no different. That’s what this Website is all about: giving you ideas to help your marriage run smoothly.

And here’s our first piece of advice! Ask yourself: “Do I need marriage advice or a different perspective?”

Many folks seek advice – not to find great ideas, but to get ammunition – to prove they are right. If that sounds familiar, give yourself and your partner a break. With very few exceptions (abuse and infidelity come to mind), there is no right or wrong in a marriage. Things appear wrong when your partner has a different expectation than you have for a given situation. When your expectations are the same, everything looks right to both of you.

Would You Benefit From a New Perspective?

Aligning your expectations will give you a fabulous perspective on your marriage. It will also make the world of your marriage feel right to both of you. Our Creating Shared Expectations explores various aspects of this topic.
