You need a more positive message. Our culture and sometimes even our friends give us the message that if we get some help or attend a marriage workshop, we’ve failed.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  It’s really a positive sign of commitment and caring to want to make your marriage successful and fulfilling.

We all have a lot to learn when it comes to making love last a lifetime. You didn’t marry yourself. You married someone else with his or her own thoughts, feelings, beliefs, viewpoints and opinions.  It’s NORMAL to have differences. It would be strange if you didn’t have conflict.
