I think these are all terrific ideas that could save a lot of marriages, but I
would have liked slightly more clarification on the last. I think it can be
quite healthy for children to see their parents work out a disagreement, so long
as it is done respectfully and peaceably. And disagreements between spouses
should never be allowed to get "heavy" and heated. In that case,
it's best for both parties to walk away for a breather and then get back
together to work it out. Another good example children could learn from.
I would forward this to my wife, but that would just provoke her to break
all 5 of these rules. haha ;-)
By all means, quote the eminently credible Barbara De Angelis:De
Angelis was born and raised in Philadelphia, and has been married five times as
of 1995. Her spouses have included magician Doug Henning and author John Gray,
who along with De Angelis while they were married, received an unaccredited PhD
degree by correspondence from the now-defunct Columbia Pacific University.
Never blow the shed up. That should be in there, trust me. Mind you, it kind of
eludes to something you should do. Always make it an adventure.
