Password to The Happy Marriage
The happy marriage has a password it's, "Oh well". Learning this one tiny phrase and embedding it in your heart will see you throughout a great marriage.
To many couples wander into marriage surrounded with dreams of happily ever after. Face it we all love a happy ending.

That person that snores, leaves the cap off the tooth paste and gripes if you don't fit their ideal mental mold they have build of the perfect relationship.

- Get mad and yell (also don't work)
- Ignore it and just stew in anger (like a pressure cooker)
- Or...(what I suggest)...
You can't live with them, you can't live without them and YOU CAN'T kill em! What you are left with is "Oh well" and you know what? It works! :)
There is a quote that if you mentally file this away it will help you to understand that somethings can be changed and some can not...
What difference could this possibly make? Well, let me show you...
