It has been a two years since the film, “Fire Proof”, has been out, but with all of the talk of Tiger Woods cheating, I presumed I might ask the question, is your marriage fire proof?
There are 3 things that everybody can do to fire proof their marriages. If you put into action these three simple commitments, your relationship with your spouse will be successful and long. Now I say commitments because without commitments, there’s no marriage or relationship. Without commitments there’s little at all about anything.
Commitments make the world go around. I think America has trouble with commitment, that’s why fifty p.c of all marriages will end in divorce. We make commitments in business, with pals, our children and our spouse, but give little attention to when we break those commitments. Our commitments need our daily calls to make those commitments work.
Here are three commitments, if put into place and followed everyday without wavering, will change your life.
1. Commit to Always Keep Growing With your partner
can you remember when you and your other half first were dating? Was not that great! Nothing but uninterrupted time together. Do whatever it is that you want. Go wherever you wanted to go. You laughed and talked for hours, and did not care what time it was. What has happened to it? It should never stop. There are times when it may slow down, nevertheless it should never stop. Your children will grow up and move away, you will retire from that job some day, but you’ll always have your other half. Put some time back into your relationship and watch it grow.
2. Make Barriers and Stay Way Behind Them
The scene is two folks having words with one another and the one draws a line in the ground and says, ” I dare you to cross it”. You have to set up and follow those lines before you get into those sticky scenarios which will need you to make a split 2nd call. It’s not if those scenarios might occur, it’s when they can happen, and they may happen. That’s when the choice you make, could define the rest of your life. Just ask Tiger Woods.
3. Find an accountability Partner
A responsibility partner is someone that you go to talk about your personal stuff, whatever it is. Someone you are close to and trust with these intimate parts of your life. It might be an older person, or more then one person, but it can never, ever, be somebody of the opposite sex. Unless it is your mother, and then you may not wish to share that kind of stuff with your ma. This is essential. To have someone that can step your decision and say, “I believe your wrong….. You better be cautious about this….watch where your going. ” These aren’t common folks indeed, because we have a inclination to always cling to those that will say what we would like them to say.
Tiger Woods was always so close to his pop. I do not know for sure, but I think that his father was kinda like his responsibility partner. They almost certainly talked all of the time about different things. He went to all his contests and was always there to welcome him when he came off the course. It was really hard for Tiger Woods after his dad died. I recall that first tournament that he won after his fathers death. Tears streaming down his face, the emotional Tiger Woods wept in the arms of his wife. His good buddy was not there to greet him this time.
All of the cheating issues that Tiger has been handling have all come after his father’s death. This is perhaps the most significant part of the three. Learn how to be responsible to somebody. It might mean the difference between a healthy marriage or divorce.
