Saying "I Do" Forever

Okay - So I have had about fifteen years of experience as a relationship and marriage coach and I wanted to offer as much advice as possible to those who are seeking to get married.  I've also been married for 24 years and so I have some very practical ideas for those who are already married and are seeking to improve their relationship exponentially.  This blog will be dedicated to relationships at every stage - I hope it is helpful and that you become a love master very soon.  (Oh yeah, and I also review different (local) Lubbock wedding venues so that everyone in the area can know what they are getting into as they choose an event center - After all, location is huge when beginning everything - You might as well have your special day at the most special place possible, right?)

Anyway, let’s begin with a few facts before we launch into this read.

Fact #1:  Of the two million couples that willget married in the U.S. this year, almost all of those polled report that they are “more in love than they have ever been” and are “positive about their decision to marry.”

Fact #2:  Of those two million couples, almost all of them “expect” to be happily married to their spouse for the rest of their lives.  (In other words, not many couples predict an imminent marital decline as they are saying or preparing to say “I Do.”)

Fact #3:  Hardly anyone gets married just so they can experience divorce.  (Divorce is not on most Bucket Lists.)

**With these three facts in mind, one has to wonder why so many people who boldly proclaim  “I Do” quickly become those who start screaming, “I Do Not.”  Honestly, how does mind-blowing love and togetherness transform into iPad-throwing hate and separation?   

What can you do to make sure these things do not happen to you?

I shall attempt to answer with brevity and brilliance.  As we go along in this process, please send in your comments and I will do my best to answer with humility and honesty.  I just want to help you journey well in your relational lives - Consider this to be your free online pre-marital and marriage counseling...
