What Makes a Marriage Last? Thoughts from a Blogger...

November 7, 2012


While spending some quality time on Pinterest, I came across a picture of a man with a sign that simply read "16 ways I blew my marriage."  Naturally, I was intrigued, and clicked on the link which brought me to a blog post by Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing.  Throughout this blog post, was an honest, raw description of what he feels went wrong in his marriage.  As a therapist working with couples, I took an interest to the post and thought I would share it with you all!  Here are his quick 16 reasons, but please check out his blog post for a full and entertaining description in detail.  Dan also talks about what he would do differently next time, and a bonus for each!


1. Don't stop holding her hand.
2. Don't stop trying to be attractive.
3. Don't always point out her weaknesses.
4. Don't stop cooking for her.
5. Don't yell at your spouse.
6. Don't call names.
7. Don't be stingy with your money.
8. Don't argue in front of the kids.
9. Don't encourage each other to skip working out.
10. Don't poop with the bathroom door open.
11. Don't stop kissing her.
12. Don't stop having fun together.
13. Don't pressure each other.
14. Don't label each other with negative labels.
15. Don't skip out on things that are important to her.
16. Don't emotionally distance yourself after a fight.
