“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)
What the Bible doesn’t tell you is how when you get married, you become the target for an influx of incredibly personal, mostly well-intended, but often downright awful marriage advice. Everyone and their mother is now trying to play Dr. Phil in your relationship when you didn’t even ask for their input. This advice comes from friends, family, random strangers, your coworkers, people you might have sat next to in 10th grade geometry, your optometrist... the list goes on and on.
The fact of the matter is, all relationships are different. Things that work well for one couple might drive a wedge between another. You have to take each piece of advice with a grain of salt and keep what works for your marriage.
In the meantime, let’s talk about the 10 pieces of lousy advice newlyweds have heard but shouldn't follow.
