Beating the Marriage Demons

Y’ALL.  You know Lizzie, from Love Your Way, right? (No, she’s not on my blog roll, and yes I will be correcting that. Although with like 50 other people who need to be added due to massive awesome.)

Anyway, she’s been hearing a lot of flak about marriage lately. Some real, some not, but ALL super troubling to an adorable engaged couple who will be getting married in the future. 

So what’s Lizzie do? 

She doesn’t blindly believe those who are having marital troubles and make blanket statements like, “Marriage changes EVERYTHING.”

She doesn’t dismiss them and forge blindly ahead, while missing what might be valuable advice.

She doesn’t just build a blanket fort and hide from the world with her fiance, while sticking her fingers in her ears going, “LALALALALALA, CAN’T HEAR YOU.” (My favorite option, personally.)

No.  She smartly gets proactive.  She goes to people who are married, divorced or both and says, ‘Hey.  I’ve been hearing this.  What do y’all think?” and then makes a series out of it on her blog called, “Marriage Demons.”

Not as fun as a blanket fort, but SO MUCH more helpful to her and her readers in the same boat.

I have a post up today, but definitely check out the previous two.  And then look at the rest of her site, because it’s so dang pretty and cool.  And make sure to check out Template Thursdays.  (that’s my favorite.)

And then go and kick those Marriage Demons square in their ugly faces.

    Lizzie is rad, and so are you. That sentence seems like it would have rubber or glue in it, but it did not, there was no need.
