Why is marriage so stinkin' hard? Life flows along wonderfully until there is some conflict or other, then it is soooooo hard. I have been spending some time at the Marriage Builders website which is run by Dr. William Harley. He is great. Even he admits marriage counseling is the hardest counseling. It is because we are both right. We each believe our opinion is the right one. If he could only accept the rules.
1. I am always right.
2. If I am ever wrong, refer to rule number one.
I guess it is probably because he has the same rules.
Don't get me wrong here, hubby and I have a good marriage. We are very much in love and care a great deal about each other. We are committed to this roller coaster ride that is marriage. I just really prefer the peaks to the valleys. Don't you?
