I Don’t Want a Normal Marriage

I think “normal” is way overrated when you understand that most people you meet have settled for a life far below what they could have.

This is never more true than when you think about marriage.  Normal marriage in America means the following:

  • Miserable and stuck, but not sure why.
  • Hardly talking, except to argue.
  • Crushing debt, with no plan to get out.
  • Little sex, and even the little they have is not fulfilling.
  • Temptation to stray, flirting with strangers.
  • Stress at work, brought home.
  • Stress at home, brought to work.
  • A mild displeasure with life, but not enough energy to do anything about it.

So I don’t want “normal” for my marriage.  I want an above normal marriage.

  • One where we love each other and talk.
  • One where we enjoy being together.
  • We are best friends.
  • We praise and lift each other up.
  • Together we create something more from our lives that we could have ever enjoyed or created alone.

I dare you to refuse to accept a “normal” marriage.  Listen, no one gets married to a boring person not having fun, but most people wind up there.  If you refuse to accept normal and then pursue an extraordinary relationship, you just might end up with it.
