A divorced dad has some sound advice for married men. It is simple but can save your marriage.
Gerald Rogers, a father and psychologist says that after divorcing his wife of 16 years, there are some things he wishes he would’ve known.
Be vulnerable, “be willing to share your fears and feelings, and be quick to acknowledge your mistakes,” says Rogers. If you’re arguing about money, stop! The key is to work together financially using both of your strengths.
“Grow together,” says Rogers, “find common goals, dreams, and visions to work towards.” Let her see the good, the bad and the ugly by letting the skeletons out of your closet. “The imperfections you have, make you perfect in her eyes.”
Finally, Rogers says “fall in love with her daily,” although change is inevitable the love that you have for one another shouldn’t waver. “Always fight to win her love just as you did when you were dating…and ALWAYS CHOOSE LOVE.”
