“I probably wasn’t my best self last night and got into a little argument with my wife. However, we’ve been together for 22 years and I’ve learned a few things about relationships along the way. Here’s the single best relationship advice I’ve ever received and a simple exercise I did that possibly saved my marriage a few years ago…”
First of all, Eric tells the story about how his wife needed his help and he kind of “phoned it in.” This resulted in him handing her something — not once, but twice — that burned her eyes.
Words were exchanged. Tempers flared. I’m sure you can imagine.
And Eric remembered some advice he’d been given:
If you do always and forever in your relationship what you did in the beginning, there will never be an end.
And a wise husband.
Eric says that in the beginning of their relationship, he would’ve gotten Jennifer flowers, taken her out to dinner, and apologized profusely. So that’s what he did today!
Eric says, “As a married man that’s just what you do, as a married woman that’s just what you do. When you’re in a relationship with anybody, that’s just what you do. You take responsibility no matter what. You set your ego aside and you do what’s necessary for the other person, the person you love and care about.”
That sounds a lot like Philippians 2:3-5 to me: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.”
Eric closes his video with sage advice about how to change your wife or husband to be the person you want them to be. It’s crazy how well his ideas will work! Check them out for yourself.
