I just finished reading the article, "Marriage 2.0" in the December issue of Parents magazine. The writer, Meagan Francis, shares the story of how her marriage, under the pressure of everyday life and raising two little children, collapsed. After the divorce, she and her ex rediscovered their love for one another and got married again. The reason I want all of you to read this story, however, is not because of her personal story. Don't get me wrong. It's interesting to hear about the evolution of her relationship. What is best about this story is the advice she shares for married couples. She provides a list of things she learned from divorcing and remarrying the same man. I found the tips to be unlike any I have ever heard. I think they will work and make all of our marriages stronger. For example, she nixes the idea that every married couple has to have date nights to stay connected and offers alternatives. Also, she encourages people to apologize. How refreshing! In any event, read her tips and let me know what you think.
