Two people meet, fall in love and get married, each so totally grateful that they have finally found, "the one!" They truly believe the other will bring them the happiness they so desire in life.
“I am finally complete!” the wife thinks, and the couple has a blissful couple of years doing everything together!
But, suddenly, her husband starts failing at making her happy. Every little thing he does or does not do drives her crazy. He feels he can do nothing right. He can't please her anymore. There is tension and dis-ease in the air.
"What happened?" They both think. We used to be so happy. "I guess we've fallen out of love."
Don't worry! This couple can totally turn things around with a little help! But it brings me to one of my favorite concepts about marriage.
"Your marriage is the icing on the cake of your life." Corey Allan.
You see? Your life is the cake. The foundation. You are responsible for that being great! Then, your marriage is the sweetness that goes on top!
When you approach your marriage this way, you are going to feel happier, because you are responsible for it! :)
