4 Common Misconceptions about Marriage Problems
How Conventional Wisdom Makes Things Worse
When you’re frustrated or stressed about your marriage, the natural thing to do is to look for advice online, like what you’re reading right now.
But there’s lots of advice online, much of it contradictory. How do you know which suggestions will bring you bliss and which will have the two of you backing into your respective corners?
Especially if you’re hurting and desperate for help, how in the world can you tell the wisdom from the weirdness?

That’s how I discovered that some of the ideas I considered immutable law were actually a bunch of bunk that was only setting me back from what I wanted in my relationship.
It made my head explode to realize I had bought into lies about marriage just because I’d heard them so many times. And they totally seemed like common sense.
