I found this man, Jordan Peterson, via youtube just recently. Apparently he’s been around for awhile and I’ve been living under a rock… or just never-ending laundry LOL! But he is brilliant and reminds me so much of the way my dad talks and thought about life. Just very addicting to listen to, that kind of beautiful mind.
This is one of THE BEST description breakdowns of what a truly great marriage should look like in practical terms. He covers all aspects, even describing almost to a “T” my husband’s tattoo he has of our marriage (the three strand cord), however he leaves out God since I don’t believe this man is a Christian.
One of the things that I enjoyed hearing Professor Peterson describe was just how ridiculously HARD it is to have and maintain a marriage like that… it’s definitely not something that happens by sheer chance or luck like I’ve heard people say. Having a marriage like this is mostly picking the right person, but it’s also deliberate and takes constant minding to it with maturity.
I got my husband to listen to it with me shortly after I found it and was so excited, telling him it was “us!” I am so happy to have this with my man, and look forward to many many more years ahead making it better and better!
