When marriage problems arise emotions are high and instinct can take over, but our instincts do not necessarily give us a good picture of what is really going on. 

  1. Marriage problems are usually personal problems that get exposed by marriage.
  2. We know how much our spouse has hurt us, but we tend to not see how much we have hurt them. 
  3. Our marriage problems are not isolated within the walls of our house. Those personal problems that we have are hurting us in several areas of our life. 
  4. It feels like marriage problems are the ultimate life failure. Actually it is ok to have a problem in marriage. It's normal. 
  5. Honestly facing a struggle in marriage opens up great opportunity.
