The Business Of Marriage


UpsNDownsWhen a business is started, there’s a stunning amount of research that goes into the entire process.  It’s very logical, very intentional, all possible scenarios are planned for, and nothing is taken for granted.

Why don’t we treat our marriages like that?  We should. We should plan, set goals.  We should have a picture of where we want to be in 2 years…5 years…for the rest of our life.

How do you do that?

Same way you start a successful business. You educate yourself. You get all the advice you can and even if it’s not all perfectly relevant to your situation, some of it will be. Most importantly, you hang out with other successfully married couples.

You know that you become who you hang out with, right?
