There is an “I” in marriage.
“I am the wife.”
No one told me what it’s REALLY like to be the wife-half of a marriage. In our beginning I didn’t act as wifely as I should have and I actually almost lost the right to call myself that.
At my lowest, I hated my life. I hated what being a wife looked like for me, and instead of changing my sentence to, “I was his wife” I decided to change it to “I want to be a better wife than I am now.”
It matters what I think, and it matters what I do about being my husband’s wife. To be a wife is not a passive venture, and what I did, changed my life…and our marriage.
I started by looking at the numbers. Fifty per cent of marriages do not make it, but my chances of being in a lifelong marriage were even less. I needed to change my numbers, so I did my own version of marriage math.
Over 150 questionnaires+ 70 interviews+25 titles+ 8 years= 1 positively changed marriage.
I asked as many questions about marriage as I could, and what I found, after all of that searching, was that the answers to a better marriage start and end with ME.
