Just for fun, Google this question: “Can I change my spouse?"
Brace yourself. There are more than 5,000,000 results.
What’s the most popular answer? “Don’t try to change your spouse.”
It’s the most parroted slice of marital advice since Adam and Eve said, “I do.”
It sounds snazzy on the surface, doesn’t it? “Just. Change. You.”
That’s not marital advice. That’s a bumper sticker at a couples’ retreat.
I fell victim, too.
