Thoughts on Marriage.

If you treat your spouse as if they can/will never leave you, then the chances of them actually leaving (physically or emotionally) will increase.  

The mentality of: "Well he's stuck with me, whether or not he likes it" destroys marriages.  It is also a great excuse for:  
1. Gaining weight.
2. Being rude, mean, or inconsiderate
3. Not having or withholding sex.
4. Not working a problem out.
5. Not changing a habit the other finds irritating or an apparent character flaw.

I hope I always treat our marriage as if Josh could leave.  I know that he isn't going to, but I don't want to give him a reason to ever want to.   

Be the kind of person you would want to be married to.

  1. Amen to these thoughts!!!

  2. "Be the kind of person you want to be married to." Ahhh...if only everyone could live by that motto! Great post, Leslie. I couldn't agree more :)
