Influencing Your Spouse

Well, you were laughing hysterically at me this week, because I was singing along to a song in the car and I didn’t understand the lyrics.

Yeah, I suddenly realized you have been singing the wrong words for 20 years. The funny thing about it was I said, “Do you realize you’ve actually used that song, like you really knew what it meant, to influence me once when were having a fight and I went your way because of it.”

I rememeber that. Research actually shows that if you can influence each other, even if you don’t know the lyrics, there’s a lot to be said for your marriage.

You’re right about that. The happiest marriages are the marriages where we allow our spounse to have a very great influence on our life.
