A couple of weeks ago I visited a church and while at the lobby we met the Pastor and shook hands and chatted for a few minutes.
During our casual conversation I learned a real truth regarding marriage. He said: "Marriage is not for you to be happy, it's for you to be holy, cause it will pull the crap out of you." I love simple, down to earth biblical truth, don’t you? LOL
Communication in a marriage relationship is one of those things that we can read about, be counseled about and still have to learn to communicate with each other.

It was in a cold Valentine’s Day, in 1988 when I got engaged. This was the climax of our 12 month friendship and our six month dating relationship.
It was a Sunday morning. I asked (my then girlfriend) if she would go to church with me that day. She complied. Her parents did too.
But I thought I wouldn’t make things too obvious. So I invited her to breakfast before church. She thought that was weird, but she was happy to go since we never had enough time to spend together during the week.

In my driving lifetime I’ve had more than a dozen cars – some new and most of them used or old.
Currently, we have three vehicles that are getting up there in miles. I enjoy driving one of the cars, a 2001 Acura Tl 3.2. Nothing fancy, but it sure has great pick-up.
With all its great pick-up and luxury items, this car has given me two warning signs so far. The latest one was very aggravating.
For example, one day I dropped my son off at work. The car was in park.

Are you quick to compliment your spouse in public? Or does your spouse feel like you’re quite critical of him/her in public?
Complimenting your spouse in public is not always an automatic reaction, unless that’s your personality.
To me it seems like it’s more of a learned skill. In fact, this is probably the most important skill your spouse needs from you in public.
