13 Ways to Make a Happier, Better Relationship
(or Start a GREAT One)
Half the marriages are going to end in divorce. The other half aren’t happy. And you are going to ask, "how’s the wife"? You idiot.
So talk about the kids right?
Hello? Anyone in there.
Do you have kids? Do you have kids squared? (That’s a kid who is between 15 and 18)
The world has changed!
Place human beings in the same living space for long enough and you can guarantee a few things.
First, you know that if they don’t hate each other yet... they fight, argue, bicker, quarrel, yell, hoot and holler (not necessarily in that order).
As men become more expendable…they’re getting expended….like getting shot out of a PEZ dispenser.
Relationships don’t have to go to hell in a hand basket, most are already there.
Not Every Relationship is Worth Saving
Now before I go too far here, know this..., not all relationships are worth saving.
I’ve worked with enough people over the years to know that abuse is a pretty common fact of life. (With both sexes being equally as capable of whacking around a spouse with or without kitchen utensils in hand.)
Chances are that relationship, given that behavior on a regular basis, doesn’t need to recharge, it needs to end.
But there’s the vast majority of relationships that simply go the way almost all relationships go.
You can’t put people together on a boat or in a room, keep them there and think they’ll all like each other more in 10 years. That’s just not real. You don't hate the lady three doors down. You can't stand the one on the couch next to you because she has done 246 things to hurt you over the last few...days.
