The phone rings. I answer. The person on the other end blurts, “I CAN’T SAVE MY MARRIAGE!” And as calmly as possible, I add “Yet.”
“I can’t save my marriage YET.”
Many times, people contact me to tell me their marriage can’t be saved. But I am not quite so sure. It IS possible the person is right. Not every marriage can be saved. Before deciding that, though, I want to know more.
Is the person at a “failpoint?”
Does the person have the tools and knowledge needed?
Has the person actually taken action?
Has the action been useful and consistent?
This week, I will tell you why “Yet” is one of my favorite words. It is powerful. If you know why.
