Today we have real estate specialists as our guests. But, we are here primarily to talk about relationships and sports and maybe, a little about real estate. Namely, marriage relationships; how it relates to conflict, pain, disappointment, communication and miscommunication. Some people have a way of saying things that are worth repeating. Zig Ziglar stated, “I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what it takes to make that marriage happy and successful. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s possible that you did marry the wrong person. However, if you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up having married the right person after all. On the other hand, if you marry the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended up marrying the wrong person. I also know that it is far more important to be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right person. In short, whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you.”
