An exchange between a husband and a wife:
Wife: What’s worse than not having a clue?
Wife: Not WANTING a clue!
Sadly, the state of many marriages is summed up in this humorous, humorous if you’re not living it, exchange. It is one thing to be blissfully ignorant, I mean, we don’t know what we don’t know. It is different thought to choose not to know or to choose not to care or to choose apathy.
Another exchange between a husband and a wife:
Husband: What is wrong with our marriage?
Wife: I don’t know and I don’t care!
There is a difference between not knowing and not wanting to know or just not caring. There is a difference between being blissfully ignorant and being deliberately apathetic.
It takes two people to make a good marriage. It just takes one person to make a marriage miserable for both and usually the reason is selfishness demonstrated through deliberate apathy.
What is holding your marriage back? What is keeping it from being the best it can be? Are you making you and your spouse miserable? Is your spouse making you miserable? Do you have a clue that you don’t have a clue? Do you want a clue?
There is a difference between not having a clue and not wanting to have a clue.
