Five Fast Facts About Marriage

  1. Communication in marriage is not about talking; it’s about listening.
  2. The three most loving words we can say to our spouse: “Tell me more.”
  3. Since conflict is an inevitable part of all loving relationships, if you say, “we never fight,” what you are actually saying is, “our marriage is not worth fighting for.”
  4. Unsolicited advice rarely calms an upset spouse; but providing a shoulder to cry on usually helps.
  5. Because marriage is not a cure for our problems, being happily married requires that we first be happily single.
