The 100% Marriage Guarantee--The Answer

Overcoming the Negative Effect of Common Sense

by Leroy Jiles

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Warning! Truth often offends those it is meant to correct. Because common sense is not truth, it is the greatest cause of marriage failure. The Answer identifies how confusing common sense with truth leads to marriage failure—how the natural desire to “make sense” causes a husband to love his wife only when she is lovable or a wife to honor her husband only when he deserves respect, but withhold love and honor when they are needed the most. It reveals how common sense deceives by making the wrong response in a difficult situation “make sense”— creating the destructive tit-for-tat logic that allows your spouse’s behavior to determine your behavior, starting a downward spiral in your marriage…with everyone making sense along the way. It reveals the fatal flaw in natural marriage advice: it depends on natural strength—when your strength runs out (or your spouse’s), the advice becomes useless. It reveals the illogical key to marriage success, which is hidden by common sense, which allows a husband to love his wife unconditionally—even when he doesn’t like her…until he loves her and a wife to honor her husband unconditionally—even when she doesn’t respect him…until she reverences him. The Answer reveals the common sense-defying truth that marriage was created to be guaranteed, risk-free, and self-healing. It makes the truth about marriage so clear that those who really seek it can be helped, and those who seek to avoid it are confronted by it.
