Let’s Be Honest

The last thing we want to do at Marriage Matters Jackson is portray a false image of marriage needing to be perfect. While we strongly believe that we have the tools and resources to help most marriages become healthier, we also realize the importance of being honest about the hardships. Sometimes it just helps to know you aren’t alone.

Check out the recent interview with the First Lady and her husband in the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/01/magazine/01Obama-t.html?_r=2&src=tptw&pagewanted=all

While the Obama’s work to be honest about their marriage, I’m wondering the same about all of us. Is there a trend today in discussions about marriage? Do you think people tend to hide their worst struggles? If you knew there were other couples going through the same kind of conflicts, would that help?

The good news is..there is a place to share some of these thoughts. Not only this Blog…but our Date Night events. Stay tuned…new classes and events will be starting soon!
