16 Ways I Blew My Marriage

CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE

dan-pearce-16-ways
7. DON’T BE STINGY WITH YOUR MONEY.
As the main bread earner, I was always so stingy with the money. I’d whine about the cost of her shampoo or that she didn’t order water at restaurants, or that she’d spend so much money on things like pedicures or hair dye jobs. But seriously. I always had just as many if not more things that I spent my money on, and in the end, the money was spent, we were just fine, and the only thing my bitching and moaning did was bring undo stress to our relationship.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I’d tell her I trusted her to buy whatever she wanted, whenever she felt like she needed it. And then, I’d actually trust her to do it.
BONUS! sometimes she will make bad purchase decisions, which leads to makeup purchase decisions. Like that new gadget you’ve had your eyes on.
8. DON’T ARGUE IN FRONT OF THE KIDS.
There was never any argument that was so important or pressing that we couldn’t wait to have it until the kids weren’t there. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist or super-shrink to know why fighting in front of the kids is a dangerous and selfish way of doing things.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I would never, ever, not even once fight in front of the kids, no matter how big or how small the issue was. I’d maybe make a code word that meant, “not with the kids here.”
BONUS! when you wait to fight, usually you both realize how stupid or unimportant the fight was and the fight never happens.
9. DON’T ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER TO SKIP WORKING OUT.
I always thought it was love to tell my spouse, “I don’t care if you don’t take care of yourself. I don’t care if you don’t exercise. I don’t care if you let yourself go.” But that was lying, and it was lying when she said it to me because the truth is, we did care and I wish that we would have always told each other how sexy and attractive the other was any time we’d go workout or do something to become healthier.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I’d ask her to tell me that she cared. I’d ask her to encourage me to go to the gym. I’d ask her to remind me of my goals and tell me I’m strong enough to keep them.
BONUS! exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. And happy people don’t kill other people. (Name that movie!)
10. DON’T POOP WITH THE BATHROOM DOOR OPEN.
I don’t know why, but at some point I started thinking it was okay to poop with the bathroom door open, and so did she. First of all, it’s gross. Second of all, it stinks everything up. Third of all, there is literally no way to make pooping attractive, which means that every time she saw me do it, she, at least in some little way, would have thought I was less attractive.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I’d shut the damn door and poop in private.
BONUS! when she does think of your naked body, she’s not going to be thinking about it in a grunting/squatting position.
11. DON’T STOP KISSING HER.
It always got to a point when I’d more or less stop kissing her. Usually it was because things were stressful and there was tension in our relationship, and so I’d make it worse by refusing to kiss her. This of course would lead to her feeling rejected. Which would of course lead to arguments about it. Other times I had my own issues with germs and whatnot.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I’d kiss her in the morning when she looked like people do in the morning. I’d kiss her at night when she’s had a long day. I’d kiss her any time I felt like she secretly wanted a kiss. And, I’d kiss her even when my germ issues kicked in.
BONUS! she feels loved when you kiss her. That’s bonus enough.
12. DON’T STOP HAVING FUN TOGETHER.
Age shouldn’t matter. Physical ability shouldn’t matter. Couples should never stop having fun with each other, and I really wish I wouldn’t have gotten into so many ruts in which we didn’t really go out and do anything. And, I’ve been around the block enough times to know that when the fun is missing, and the social part of life is missing, so also goes missing the ability to be fully content with each other.
IF I HAD IT TO DO-OVER: I’d make a rule with her that we’d never stay home two weekends in a row.
BONUS! awesome stories and awesome memories come from doing awesome things. And so do cherished embarrassing moments.

I read both, "how I blew my marriage" & "how she", and these are wonderful. I like how you described how you would of handled each situation differently if you could do it over. I am a newlywed, and I've taken mental notes on some of your advice. It's nice reading a man's point of view on both sides of the spectrum. Look forward to more readings!

Excellent list!  If my ex-husband did even one or two of these suggestions, maybe we would still be married.  :) You really hit the nail on the head with this list.

My name is Crystal and I’m here to let you know that with man it may seem impossible, but with Priest gbenga nothing is imposable. I made a promise to Priest Gbenga and to myself that when he restored my marriage, I would testify and tell the world. I would share every single detail no matter how shameful and embarrassing it would be, in the hope and knowledge that I would someday be able to bring some kind of hope for a hurting wife or husband who would’ve been going through what I once was, I’ll try to be as brief as possible but I really don’t want to leave any detail out, no matter how small, because it may be the every thing God wants to use to inspire and encourage a stander or prodigal spouse. I don’t want to apportion blame too much here but suffice it to say we had some in-law issues which contributed greatly to our demise.but that is another story and I want to concentrate on how this great man showed up and showed off in the mist of my situation. My husband of 4 years and 7 months left me on December 5th 2013. But all thanks to Priest Gbenga, he is now back home and we are rebuilding a marriage that from all counts and to the naked eye in the natural realm was dead. As far as I could see we were the perfect couple, went out together, stayed home together,laughed, joked.we were like two peas in a pod. of course we had our regular marital problems.no marriage is perfect,in addition to the above we also argued and sometimes told each other some harsh words, like every other couple, it isn’t right but it happens. In spite of all this, I believed he loved me just as much as I loved him. you could imagine my surprise and heart break when one day after a short disagreement, and I mean short,lasting no more that a few minutes, my beloved husband packed his clothes and walked out of my life. All this happened on December 5th 2013. I held off from calling him because I was still upset and I figured I didn’t do him any harm, he was the one that stepped out in our marriage and and abandon me with our little baby Sarah. The days went by and he didn’t call to ask of our daughter Sarah, or check on us if we are ok. so on January 1st 2014.I called to wish him a happy new year, he refused to take my calls so I texted him only to be told that he wasn’t interested in me and my daughter (Our daughter) and I should go on with my life, that I should never call or text him again, that was like a dagger through my heart. I felt as though someone had literally ran a knife  straight through my stomach and was twisting it repeatedly, but that isn’t the worse yet. I  persisted in calling him that same day and eventually he picked up the phone, he was as  cold as ice, I felt frightened even listening to him, he told me. I NEVER LOVED YOU, I AM  SORRY WE GOT MARRIED.I FELT TRAPPED IN THIS MARRIAGE, I DON’T LOVE YOU LIKE A MAN SHOULD LOVE A WOMAN, THE FEELINGS I HAVE FOR YOU IS THAT OF A “GOOD” FRIEND, I DON’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU AND YOU SHOULD GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE. I’M NOT COMING BACK, I cried DAILY AND  HOURLY, I felt all hope was gone, I mean how do you get someone to love you again when that  person is saying I never loved you at all. I had built my life around my husband and now he  was gone, I felt like I lost the better part of me, I couldn’t eat, I didn’t want to  socialize and I forced myself to go to work. I have never felt pain like I did then in my  entire life, it is amazing when you are down you start looking for every where to get advice, that was how i go on the internet to sick some advice before i came across testimony from someone called Lynnita on how priest Gbenga help her. i decided to copy the email and contact this great man. when i contacted him, i regain my hope the moment i got a  response from this man. he told me what to and how to go about it. i did as he instructed  me to. To make a long story short, July 20th 2014, that is 7days after Priest Gbenga got  involved. I got a text from my husband. He told me he felt the same way and I should go on  with my life. He said he wanted to talk and wanted to know if he could come by the house,  he wanted to know if I could forgive him for what he did and for us to try again at our  marriage. but when he told me he was coming to see me, I thought it would be perhaps a Hi,  hello, how are you, how is Sarah doing, or perhaps a few weeks down the line he might drop  in a call or something, I had no idea that this great man was bringing my husband home that 7th day that instant. I give all the thanks to Priest Gbenga for what he did, it doesn’t  matter what your situation looks like, it doesn’t matter how impossible and dead it seems,  it doesn’t matter what your husband or wife is planning,This isn’t every single detail of what happened there are parts missing…but my short journey has been nothing but incredible and miraculous. but I want you to know that with Priest Gbenga ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

Be encouraged.  For those who are passing through heart break or unwanted divorce, you can
contact him, I'm  100% sure, your situation will change for good.

Glorious be unto Dr. Ukaka the great man and ever, my name is Sarah from Taxes city usa. since 1 and a half year I have witness what is called heart broken. my boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me and impregnate me and leave,he dump me,he stop calling" he stop picking my calls,and he no longer respond to me. I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep"and tears runs out of eyes. The silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. Crying all day,because of my life was lonely. So thanks to Ukaka that came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. I saw his mail while browsing and I contact and tell him what I am passing through with no doubt because what saw about him,was enough to believe. And I was given words of solution on what to do. I can't really help thinking about it I have tried to see what I can do, I manage to provide him some materials and he help me with the rest,after casting the spell, 12hrs later he came with rose on his hand and I was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying I should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,I can't wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then" he said he is restless without me, just as the prophet has said he will be. He brought out a ring and put it on my hand. Our wedding day was scheduled,1week after we got married. today makes it 2weeks and we are living happily I don't know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing I can never forget. And I can't really share to myself alone, I want y'all to help me praise him because if it is wasn't for him I already plan of committing suicide.

My marriage has been a blessing till 4months ago when my whole life almost got sucked. My ex-wife and wanted me back by all means and wanted to break my marriage. she set me up in many occasions showing the pictures to my wife that am back to her this made my wife file for an instant divorce and wanted to leave my life in total. and even my 4kids wanted were disappointed in me. but i never have any intentions of going back. The i went to many spell casters but they all failed taking my money away. I lived in grief for 3 good months without any plan of getting out of this mess. till i met an old skull friend who show me to [email protected] a spell witch who then restore the happiness to my family and my life. He spell worked so fast that i could not even believe it. he's great for as much i can tell. Am still grateful to he till tomorrow for he spell works.

My wife canceled the divorce and came back with apologies all for this spell powers.

Dan, I read that story over a year ago and it was such an eye opener. I was in a marriage with a man that made so many of those same mistakes, but mostly, he took for granted that I was always there, until I wasn't. Your story is great for any one in a serious relationship!

Very thoughtful article. We live, we learn. You did ask us to comment on what we thought so here goes. #8 Don't fight in front of the kids.  Well, true, you never want to have a knock down, drag down ugly brewhaha in front of them.  But never, ever, having a fight or disagreement in front of them can also have a down side. They many not ever learn how to have healthy disagreement with their significant other. Show them how to have a difference of opinion while having respect for the other person. Don't use ugly words, don't yell or stamp around and throw things. Have a dialog. If you can't come to a resolution and things get heated, then use the safe word to table it until you can revisit it without them there.  End it with something like, I guess we have to agree to disagree and give each other a kiss. This teaches them so many things. Like we are not always going to agree, that we can openly share our thoughts and opinions, and after all is said and done we still love each other.  

Just my thought and opinion.

I think everyone gets a little lackadaisical but if you truly enjoy that person it's easier. Honestly some marriages just are never going to work. Great advice though!

@Angela  I signed up just so I could say that I straight-up agree with this post.  The only thing I would add would be to know your limits ahead of time; some topics should be tabled from the get-go, and parents should not push it when that's the case.       


But, you are so right about the importance of teaching children that they need to be able to disagree without being disagreeable.  Also, it doesn't benefit children for them to grow up thinking that marriage (or any relationship, for that matter) is all sunshine and roses all of the time.  It benefits them to know that relationships in general, and marriage in particular, takes work and often requires compromise.


This way, God forbid, if your child does walk in on a heated moment, they aren't going to worry that their world could be falling apart.  They will know that their parents might have differing opinions, but that they always kiss and make up.
