Every Sunday evening from 29 July to 19 August, Cornerstone will be running Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage – a humorous DVD series that challenges the way we think about marriage, our spouses and ourselves; and reminds us that marriage can indeed always be better.
Many of us have approached marriage in the wrong way – expecting perfection from our spouses and from marriage itself. Here’s what the Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage website says about this topic:
“Ever walk past a mirror and are shocked or mortified by what you see? Your hair standing up in a weird way, your slip showing, your fly open, egg stuck in your teeth? Mirrors can be real lifesavers. Had it not been for that mirror, you may have gone the entire day looking ridiculous.
“Marriage is a mirror. By living so closely with another human being, you start to get a picture of what you really look like. You start to see where you need to adjust and change. This is why marriage is so effective at making people’s lives more rich and productive—if they adjust to the needed changes.
“Unfortunately, many expect marriage to be something that makes them look better, not something that reveals where they don’t look so good. Additionally, rather than see where we need to change, we opt to project our own negative images on our spouses and point out where they need to change: She is so irritating….he is such a lazy slob….I don’t want to act this way, but she brings out the worst in me.”

It’s going to be a great series with plenty of laughs as Mark Gungor, the host of the series, in a tongue-in-cheek way talks about the differences between men and women and the way we approach marriage incorrectly.
