Fight for Love

It seems everywhere you look today, marriages and relationships are falling apart … I know I’ve been shocked when friends of mine have split up – people who I thought would be together forever.”

Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a Sleepless In Seattle marriage, but I’m trying to be a cool dad and husband … to listen and learn and work out what makes my wife happy.
And I just read a great book on this whole thing, that you can knock out in an hour … literally – called The 60 Minute Marriage!
It has really helped us, to go through it together … but, prepare yourselves, if you do take my 60 minute challenge and read this book as a couple, it brings up some issues that make the road a little rockier before it gets smooth … but as I’m learning, the rewards are worth all the hard stuff.

You know what the key to it all was? Our wedding day vows! You know, we say that we’ll love in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad times.

I can tell you right now, on January 22, 1996, when I said I do to the most beautiful bride in the world, wild horses couldn’t have torn us apart.

… but when couples get tired, stressed, the kids are robbing us from that time we used to have … the job starts to take the place of family and its easy to think we’ve lost those feelings of love that we had when we were all gooey and gaga over each other … the result … and you hear it all the time, “we just don’t love each other anymore …. Maybe we never did.”

I’m Tim Sisarich, and I just wanted to let you know that every day, I have to choose to fight to keep the love alive.

    Good for you! Stay married is what I tell all my married friends. I’m a divorced single dad, and while there are perks and benefits to going it solo, there are downsides as well (which makes for blog fodder)
