Dr. Tony Ferretti Gives Marriage Lessons from the Presidential Debates
MELBOURNE, Fla., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Finally, the election is upon us! Are you tired of listening to the Democratic candidate blaming the Republican candidate, the Republican candidate blaming the Democratic candidate and the Independent candidate blaming everybody? Will it ever stop? Probably not, because blaming “the other guy” seems to work for politicians, and they’re in it to win.
Unfortunately, many husbands and wives play politics with their relationships every day. Blame may help politicians win elections, but it’s a losing strategy for couples. Too often, seeking to defend and justify their own positions, partners choose to blame each other for their common troubles. Sounds a lot like our “statesmen.”
Just as Republicans and Democrats are gridlocked in Washington, a couple stuck in the “blame game” can make no progress together in their relationship. Blame is simply a lose-lose proposition.
It’s easy to see this hyper-partisanship in our elected leaders, but not so easy to see it in ourselves. But refusing to blame is the uncommon and uncommonly courageous choice. By changing ourselves we can heal our relationships as explained in the book Change Your Life, Not Your Wife: Marriage-Saving Advice for Success-Driven People by Dr. Tony Ferretti. Perhaps the candidates can take some of its lessons back to Capitol Hill.
