Q: What is your best advice for a couple considering marriage?
Marriage is a big decision. I think we can all agree to that. But what sets apart marriages that succeed from marriages that don’t?
Today, I’m joined by Pastor Cal, one of the spiritual advisors and coaches from the reality TV show called Married At First Sight. On this show, they literally match up two potential candidates for marriage based on a series of psychological tests — and then they meet and marry on their wedding day.
Let me just say, it’s a crazy premise – but if nothing else, it’s a fascinating look into some of the stages of a relationship: the honeymoon stage, followed by conflict and tension, followed by learning resolution, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
Today, we talk a little bit about the show, and then dive into some key areas that make a marriage work, and things to be on the lookout for as you’re considering marriage!
