The Perfect Marriage
posted by Michele Olson
Did the headline of this blog make you want to know about a perfect marriage? Worried you don't have the perfect marriage? Relax. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage. Outside of the movie and TV screen, it doesn't exist. Real people are in every marriage and real people are not perfect. It's not gonna happen!
The word "perfect" also implies there is one right way to be married. Marriages are as unique as the people that are in them.
Now, that said, there is such a thing as a really great marriage!
Hilllary Rich and Helaina Laks Kravitz, M.D. writing for the Complete Idiot's Guide to The Perfect Marriage have a way to help us remember what makes a great marriage.
G= Good communication
R= Real partnership
T= Total commitment
Have all these elements working together and you are on the way to a great marriage. It also helps if each of the spouses in the marriage commit 100 percent to the marriage. This investment will bring a great return and it's well worth your time.
Add some flexibility because of the curve balls life throws at all of us, and you will be able to have a great marriage. Check out all the resources at thinkmarriage.org We are committed to helping you have a great marriage!
