Have you ever heard of a beef stew…

Have you ever heard of a beef stew marriage? That’s a marriage where the wife is always “beefing” and the husband is always “stewed”. Too many marriages resemble a battlefield rather than a happy home. At many weddings the flower girl would do better dropping hand grenades than rose pedals. But why must this be? Every couple comes together expecting their marriage to be their dream come true. Why must it turn into their worst nightmare? The reason so many marriages end in divorce is one or both did not bring the right ingredients into the marriage and then work to make it work. The right ingredients are not sucker punches and rolling pens. The ingredients that make a happy home are a determination to make it work, a self-giving love that seeks to please the other in every way, a kind, pleasant and thoughtful disposition, and an open, honest communication. Marriage is never a 50-50 proposition. It is a whatever-it-takes proposition: 60-40, 70-30, whatever. This is “Just-a-Minute” with Ed Boggess
