For Better or for Worse…

January 23, 2011

Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.  ~Barnett R. Brickner

We are working through a Bible study at church right now based ont he seminar “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage.” I have heard a lot of this before, but it’s good to be reminded of our differences as men and women, and it’s fun to be able to share with others.

So many times I think Jerry and I feel like we can’t learn with other people. We need to be the example. But this time, we have made ourselves free to share and learn along with the others in our small group.

Tonight we talked about how men are takers and women are givers. And how men will ALWAYS need to be asked to do things more than once. And how bartering for…things…usually helps encourage men to do what we women think needs to be done. There was a lot of laughter and fun, but I came away tonight being freshly reminded that I’m not relating to Jerry very well. I am going to focus this week on doing better, no matter what.

    My in-laws bought the dvd’s for us, and we LOVED them. It was kind of refreshing to just laugh about all this stuff that we sometimes take too seriously. I’m glad you’re being blessed too. 🙂
