    Hey Sam….I’ve been awake for an hour tossing and turning and remembered I needed to read this. Love it!! I really can’t wait to start reading that book with Troy. I want to read it now but I will wait. I love your writing style and I think you did awesome on this. We all go through this and it’s nice to read that all marriages are not perfect like they seem 😉 Love it!!

      Adrianne I am really glad you liked the post. I do pray that my experiences encourage others. Enjoy that book. It really is good.

    Well said, my sweet daughter (in law). Through your learning experience, you have so much good to share. I’m so happy that you feel you want to share! Your words of wisdom and self-learning may touch someone and help them in ways you never expect. Love you, Mom #2

  3. This post came at the best time! I’m getting married for the second time in a few months and don’t want to have the same failures we both experienced in our first marriages.

      I wish you the very best. I’m glad my experience has added to yours. Sometimes, we just aren’t prepared I guess.

  4. This is such a valuable write up for all married couples! We went through similar situations after my grandmother died. It’s the ‘getting through a tough time together or apart’ of marriage that tests us. I am sharing your post because I want others to know about Love & Respect. Even if it inspires one person.

      Lisa thank you so much for sharing this with others. That is the sole purpose of this post and my blog as a whole. I want others to know there is a better way. We do not have to give up.

  5. Excellent post. I think that all can be summarized in a “good will” approach. I am married 30 years now and lost any interest to prove anything. I just let things go. As long as there is mutual respect all details are insignificant.

  6. It takes a lot of guts to admit that there are problems within a marriage (we all have weaknesses to work on), but even more to allow others like a counselor to give you advice and help lead you that way. I’m glad you were able to get the resources y’all needed because divorces are so devastating and 20 years is seriously such an accomplishment!!

      Thank you Autumn. It’s very difficult to admit my weaknesses, but it was well worth it in the end. Thank you for stopping by.

  7. Thank you for such an honest post. It really gave a deep look into your marriage and how you are working to improve it. Marriage is really hard work. I would say we’re about 80/20 right now, but I’d love to get to 90/10 some day too. Thanks!

      Shann 80/20is still great. Not giving up seems to be the key! lol It is so tough. I am glad we are on the mend now for sure. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    One of your best posts! If we are all honest with ourselves – we have been in your shoes at one level or another! I’m so thankful you both looked to God for help and trusted in each other enough to work on your marriage and yourselves! Too many times in this day and age people find it easier to walk away rather than looking into themselves. That is not easy! I can’t wait to hear Jeff’s perspective as well! Thank you for sharing !

      Thank you so much Lisa. I look back now and kinda can’t believe I had had enough. It’s been a long journey, but totally worth it.
