Richard and Linda Eyre, authors The 8 Myths of Marriaging: Making Marriage a Verb and Replacing Myth with Truth talk with us about the myths of marriage and common misconceptions. 

  1. The Cone Myth
    • Myth: Measure relationship on how alike you are, how often you argue
    • Truth: The best marriages are between two strong individuals 
  2. The Communication Myth
    • Myth: Some things are better left unsaid 
    • Truth: Unexpressed feelings never die; they  just get buried and come out later
  3. The Test-drive Myth
    • Myth: It’s unwise to make a commitment before you’ve lived together long enough
    • Truth: Real security comes from promising & implementing TOTAL COMMITMENT
  4. The Equality Myth
    • Myth: Equality should be the goal of your relationship or marriage
    • Truth: It’s better to strive for synergistic “oneness”
