Immutable Law of Marriage: It’s About WE

150 150 Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D.

We start a new series this week,Marriage is about becoming a WE. The Immutable Laws of Marriage.

The universe is ruled by laws. Our world is ruled by laws.  And these are not the ones enforced by a governmental agency.

These laws are more akin to, for example, gravity.  If you jump up, you come down, thanks to gravity.  When you trip, gravity takes over and you hit the floor.

You can momentarily escape the law of gravity.  For example, a trampoline can propel you up.  But that “escape” will still end with the law taking over.  The penalty of violation?  Hitting the ground again.

These immutable laws of marriage are like that.  You may violate the law for a bit.  But the violation will come back to bite you.  There will be a price to pay, if you continue trying to violate these laws.

This week, I cover the first law.  I believe it is also the most important.  And it is a law that most people don’t know or understand.  Violating this law may lead to failure of a marriage.  But at the very least, the marriage will not be as strong or satisfying as it could be.

The first law?  “Marriage Is About Becoming A WE.”

Listen below to learn how to abide by this law — and the dangers of violating it.
