Marriage

Luke's proactive approach to marriage.
I've been married four years now and the concept amazes me each new day.
How can we keep having the same simple discussion over and over again? Why does it bother him so much that I leave the sponge in the sink? Where do all the socks go?
The questions are really endless.

What makes a marriage work? That's a good one.
We did a lot of research before taking the plunge at the tender ages of 19 and 20; even then we didn't have anything figured out.

We looked a marriages we admired, and decided date night was important. We both took a sociology class at College of the Redwoods called Marriage and the Family and learned listening skills, which when we're fighting we both quickly forget.

I guess somewhere Luke heard that marriages die in a whisper, and this gets him worried whenever I don't have an opinion about something. Hence the above comic.

If you stumbled upon this blog in hopes to find the answers to a good marriage, I'm sorry. All I've got for you is:
Good luck!
