Podcast 024: Introduction and Bad Marriage Advice: Don’t Go To Bed Angry

By Dr. Ron Ross

There is a never-ending supply of advice for married couples – some of it is very bad.

Here are a few examples:

“If your relationship is in trouble, have a baby. It always makes everyone cheer up and be happy.”

Uhhhh no. A pregnant woman with morning sickness followed by a crying newborn baby with colic does not make either father or mother cheer up and be happy.

This piece of genius advice no doubt came from a man. He said, “Sex should always, 100% of the time, be mind-blowing and transcendent. If it’s not – even once – immediately get a divorce.”

Three responses to that advice: it’s not only physically impossible to achieve, it is offensive and down-right stupid.

For the next few weeks, Dr. Ross deals with commonly given bad marriage advice. You’re not going to want to miss any of them.

Perhaps the most frequently given bad advice is NEVER GO TO BED ANGRY. There are three problems with that advice – that’s the subject of this week’s Podcast!
