"Okay. I messed-up." — now what?
As a marriage therapist, I often hear these words.
In spite of everything that has happened, you and your partner have made the decision to stay together!
But it is a conditional "staying together." The understanding between you and your partner is that the bad behavior — whatever it was — will STOP. And so, based on this belief... you march forward.
You are now entering a new phase of your relationship journey. Your next big challenge is to put your marriage back on track after your bad behavior has derailed it. You need to reestablish trust, love and goodwill.
You and your partner need the tools to recover fully, build a good marriage and return the love you once had. You need to implement the following marriage rules...
These eight dynamics — these 8 marriage rules — connect you and your partner in a positive way.
To help you achieve the strong and healthy marriage you want, I have written a self-help relationship building book called The 8 Marriage Rules for a Passionate Marriage. In this book are the details, guidance and true stories that show you how to put into practice these marraige rules.
As a medical professional can take a person's temperature, blood pressure, pulse and declare a person healthy or otherwise, so too can the health of a marriage be determined by the degree these 8 marriage rules are used to guide the behavior within a marriage.
Recovering from bad marriage behavior is complete only when you and your partner are trusting, peaceful, loving and affectionate with one another. To achieve this, these 8 marriage rules "must be followed."
The must be followed 8 marriage rules is not my opinion, it is not a statement of religious morality... no... it is just the way relationships work!
Follow the rules or pay the price — the natural consequences of ignoring these marriage rules is an unhappy and lonely marriage or divorce. When you follow these 8 marriage rules, your marriage will be peaceful, healthy and happy.
In the distant past, religious, social, financial, and sexual considerations forced individuals to remain married even when they were unhappy. Contemporary values, opportunities, and technology have changed all this.
We live in a different world than that of our grandparents and great grandparents!
Now, living together as husband and wife is voluntary. And you and your partner will choose to do stay together only when there is an advantage over being apart. In other words, you stay together when your marriage brings you security, comfort and happiness.
Today, modern men and women need a good marriage just to stay married!
This is what makes these 8 marriage rules so important. Follow them... and you and your partner will be attracted to each other, you will feel passionate about each other, and naturally you will each choose to stay together for a lifetime.
