For the past thirty years in Western Society we have given undue emphasis to emotions.


When applied to a troubled marriage, this philosophy advises, “If you don’t have love feelings, admit it and get out of the marriage.”


“If you feel hurt and angry, you would be hypocritical to say or do something kind to your spouse.”


This philosophy fails to reckon with the reality that man is more than his emotions.


We have feelings, yes, but we also have attitudes, values, and actions.


If we jump from emotions to actions and ignore attitudes and values, we will destroy our marriages.


Stop, think, look for the positive, affirm it, and then, do something that has positive potential.


Actions that are guided by values and positive attitudes are more likely to be productive.
