My good friend Amy, put up a great marriage post today. If you feel you need a marriage 101 refresher, check her out and read it. It doesn't matter how many books I read on marriage, people I talk to, talk shows I watch- I learn something new every time. A marriage is something so precious and needs work, just like anything else we invest in. If we neglect it, it will crumble. And the picking up the pieces and putting it back together is hard work, painful, and sometimes unrepairable.
I think of it like this- if you have a job, and you decide to not do that job anymore, soon you will be without a job. It's the same with marriage. It takes work, and if you don't work at it, you won't have a marriage anymore.
