The Challenge Of Marriage
If you’ve ever been married, you know it can be a challenge. From miscommunication to misunderstandings. From unfulfilled needs to disregarded opinions. It can be a jungle out there. Our guest this week, Larry Bilotta, is here to tell us why the problems exist and it isn’t what you may be thinking.
Larry takes us all the way back into the past to enlighten us as to why the dynamics in marriage are playing out the way they do. I like how he put the root of the problems into three separate categories with two types of problems in each category.
Repairing A Loveless Marriage
Larry had been in a loveless marriage for 27 years and was able to repair his marriage even after divorce papers had been filed. He has now been married for 40 years. I think we can trust his methods.
I have to agree with Larry, Unresolved pain or issues that came about in childhood really do bear fruit in adult life. I know it is absolutely true in my life and I’ve seen it in the lives of many who I know personally.
Is it worth it? Is your relationship too far gone? I don’t know about you but I broke my wife’s heart at one point although it was before we were married. How did I break it? I was unfaithful to her.
It took me a long time to repair the damage. I’m talking 15 years. Was it hard? Yes. Did I feel like giving up? Yep. Did my wife want to throw in the towel? More than once. Was it worth it? Absolutely. We don’t want to be anywhere else but beside each other.
Some things absolutely can be repaired.
See you next week and remember to live, learn, love.
