The Marriage Continuum…
“Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without.” ~ James Dobson
Where Does YOUR Marriage Fall?
Big question, isn’t it? It’s time to discover the answer and get down to specifics.
We believe that if we can help you SEE where you are right now — and where you want to go — we can help you get there FAST.
However, if you attempt to live in a fog, or worse, give up — believing that you have no choices — you will be treading water at best… and at worst… committing slow-motion suicide.
The simple truth is that we are not getting out of this life ALIVE, so we have to make sure you are LIVING your best life possible… at every point in time.
To help frame the continuum of marriage properly, we have provided you with substantial detail within the various pages in this Section. Each page discusses each gradient from Toxic to Exceptional, offering both commentary and our recommendations for moving forward.
A big question: Are you in “normal” range or on the fringes?
Without getting too “technical”, it is helpful to think about where your marriage is relative to all marriages. No one, including us, has any clue what percent of marriages are actually Toxic, Struggling, Average, Great or Exceptional. But we can assume they would roughly fall into a “normal” distribution known as the Bell Curve (above).
As you can see, maybe 2% of the population are at the edges: Toxic and Exceptional.
Our advice to the Toxic group is to GET HELP. Stop working on your marriage and work on yourself.
Our advice to the Exceptional 2% is to KEEP GROWING. Growing your bond is what guarantees a happily ever after.
For everyone else, let’s get your marriage up into the Great range… starting right now.
“No long-term marriage is made easily, and there have been times when I’ve been so angry or so hurt that I thought my love would never recover. And then, in the midst of near despair, something has happened beneath the surface. A bright little flashing fish of hope has flicked silver fins and the water is bright and suddenly I am returned to a state of love again — till next time. I’ve learned that there will always be a next time, and that I will submerge in darkness and misery, but that I won’t stay submerged. And each time something has been learned under the waters; something has been gained; and a new kind of love has grown. The best I can ask for is that this love, which has been built on countless failures, will continue to grow. I can say no more than that this is mystery, and gift, and that somehow or other, through grace, our failures can be redeemed and blessed.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle
