Healthy marriage: accepts responsibility
Hurting marriage: blames the other
Chapter 7: Healthy or Hurting Marriage
Heartfelt Marriage Podcast 051
By Ron Ross
“Why is it always my fault when something goes wrong?”Blaming in marriage is a dangerous and love-snuffing game. It is a difficult behavior to deal with because every spat quickly turns into a debate about who did what and why and whose fault it was. When blame is the name of the game, there is seldom a time, place or desire to face the reality of the situation and seek a long-lasting solution. Blame your mate, and you will never solve a problem or strengthen your marriage. You will, however, increase your chances of spending an inordinate amount of money on a divorce attorney who will exploit your “irreconcilable differences.” You don’t want that to happen.
In this Podcast, Dr. Ross provides you with six components of a sincere apology – listen to them, write them down, and employ them so your marriage will be kind, resilient, and loving.
The Podcast is 9 minutes long.
