Inventing Your Own Marriage
Sometimes, we ask for help, but we have to be careful with the advice (or books) we are given. Marriage is a unique thing, and taking two individual personalities and creating one home can be challenging. While there is knowledge to be gained from some marriage advice books, we have to learn to filter through and realize that not every book is made for every marriage.
As we grow and mature, we can learn how to accept advice and invent our own marriage. We learn how to “customize” what we glean from marriage advice books or counsel from friends and professionals to our own marriages, much as we would a homeschool curriculum to our children. As you walk this journey with your spouse, allow yourself and your spouse the grace to grow with, and towards each other.
