If my job was not satisfying, the pay was lousy and my boss treated me poorly…. My mom would likely suggest I look for another job.
If my car broke down every 300 miles, leaked oil and was out of warranty…. My dad would want me to buy a new vehicle (as long as it’s a Chevy- preferably black).
If my aerobic workout put too much stress on my joints and left me feeling miserable for days afterward…. My doctor would probably recommend a new routine.
…Why not apply this same logic to bad marriages?
