If your wedding was like most, the husbands in attendance will have approximately 300-400 years of marital experience.
300-400 years of wisdom.
300-400 years of making mistakes.
And if you are as smart as I think you are (because if you weren’t you wouldn’t be reading this post), you’ll learn from these experienced veterans because they can provide not only advice, but also a list of all their mistakes. Actually, you will need to get the list of mistakes from their wives.
Anyway, armed with this knowledge, you can avoid making those some mistakes and be free to go out and make your own.
My point is this: Effective husbands seek out mentors.
They look for men they can trust, whose marriages they admire and they learn from them.
In short, don’t try to figure it all out for yourself. Use Habit #11 and Talk to the Old Man.
Check back next time when we cover the 12th and last (for now) Habit. The Habit that is the key to making your marriage work.
