Heartfelt Marriage Podcast 084

A message from Dr. Ross –

After my wife’s death, I found out things about her that I never knew. Our oldest son, David, was her undisputed favorite child, and he revealed to me a couple of her secrets. I’ll tell you about one of them in this podcast.

The theme is that both husband and wife are individuals who make up a common third entity called marriage. However, you cannot define yourself solely regarding what you think others need of you. You cannot be only “wife” and exclude all other aspects of who you are. You cannot be just “husband” and not have time and space that is yours.

May God bless you and your mate as you negotiate the time and space, the quirks and traits of each other’s personality and both of you wholly become who you are, and at the same time, the two of you become entirely one. Or as I like to say, I am me, and you are you, and our marriage is us.

Enjoy the podcast and feel free to forward it to anyone you know who wants a mutually satisfying, emotionally healthy, till-death-do-us-part marriage.

Thank you,

Dr. Ron Ross
