In this episode I talk about the expectation the husband and wife brings to the marriage particularly when when they are exchanging their vows.
When Couples exchange their vows, this is what they really hear
Man: Now I have someone who can cook, clean and take care of me. Someone that I can sleep with at will who’s goal is to make me happy by always doing what I say.
Woman: Now I have someone who will always make me happy. Someone who always knows what to do and say. A true leader and mind reader who knows what I am thinking before I say it. Someone who will always put his wife and family first before his parents and the church. Someone who always provides for his family.
I also talk about a few things couples quickly realize in their marriage.
- Misaligned expectations
- My spouse does not have all the answers
- My spouse can’t make me happy all the time
- Marriage requires more work than I thought
- And much more.
