Marriage is not beans

Couples face lots of challenges.

Family problems are enough to ruin couples.

Successful marriages are becoming rare.

Why? What causes the rarity?

Lots of internal and exogenous factors.

  • Money and finances
  • Cheating
  • Job and time demands
  • Friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers
  • Lifestyle including incongruent hobbies

I am lucky to be going on 40 years of peaceful wedded bliss

And 2 of them were good!

But, at my age, I can’t remember which 2!

Our secret.

Compatibility. We think alike. We have the same goals.

Ditch the macho bullshit. Mellow out and go with the flow. Do your “honeydew” list. Honey, do this. Honey, do that.

Don’t expect your wife to do everything. Help out. Do your share. And more. Remember, the song says “….I’ll go do the dishes, you go have a beer….”

(I get tears in my eyes thinking about that… it is what my mom said to my dad in the 1950’s and ‘60’s.)

You’re right. Marriage is not beans.

BEANS BEANS. THE MUSICAL FRUIT

THE MORE YOU EAT THE MORE YOU TOOT

THE MORE YOU TOOT THE BETTER YOU FEEL

SO LETS HAVE BEANS AT EVERY MEAL!

I really loved it!!!!!
