Marriage Advice that You Thought Sounded Good but Turned Out it Really Wasn’t ~ Episode 195 with Chris & Jamie Bailey

Aug 30, 2022 | advice, Marriage, Mentor, Podcast, Spiritual battle, Spiritual Game Plan

Most of the time, our friends and family have the best intentions with their well wishes and words of wisdom after we tie the knot. But it’s important to carefully consider the suggestions we receive and evaluate how they stack up against scripture before we adopt them in our marriage. 

In this episode, I talk with Chris & Jamie Bailey about distinguishing between solid marriage advice and that which misses the mark. We discuss some major relationship killers.

Why the following common sayings are best avoided:

  • “Marriage is 50/50”
  • “Happy wife, happy life.”
  • “Don’t go to bed angry.”

When it comes to marriage, we can learn so much from those who have gone before us. But sometimes, it’s best to archive certain pointers we receive.
