Back in the covered wagon days, when I was a young and single undergraduate
student, Dr. Harold Bissell of the BYU Geology Department was explaining to we
know-it-alls about marriage. He told us that the secret to a strong and long
lasting marriage is all in decision making. He said that he always made the big
and important family and personal decisions but it was important to let his wife
make some of the small ones, just to make her feel good. He allowed his wife to
decide those little things like: "where we live, who our friends are, what
we eat, what I wear, what kind of car I drive, where I work, etc". (Just the
little things.) "l would make the major decisions, the really
important stuff like: whether or not the US should get out of the UN or was
there another shooter in Dallas that day". Maybe Doc Bissell was right

appendixes that the State of Utah is adding of late. Marriage remains what
traditionally has been, the union of two people who care for each other and who
are willing to work together and give 100% (each) of their abilities to provide
for emotional, physical and spiritual safety and growths for the couple.

wrong; thinking you are always right; my will, not God's will be done.
Thank you for sharing your insights. I recognize the truth of what you have
written. I, too, believe that these are central to finding a satisfying and
