It started with a comment on Facebook from Chelle. "What doyou think of getting a group of relationship bloggers together
to write an ebook?”
That comment was about Seth Godin's
What Matters Now
. Heorganized a team of writers who each wrote about one idea toget the reader thinking about the new year. We thoughtsomething similar to encourage others in their relationshipswould be useful around Valentine's Day.That was the start of this ebook, but, for me, the bigger "idea"started six years ago on the steps of a small castle an hour andtwenty minutes north of New Orleans. It was on those stepsthat my beautiful wife and I exchanged our vows. I didn't knowwhat I was getting into, I just knew that I loved this woman,and wanted to be with her. I hadn't really thought about thedays after the wedding. I assumed we'd just love each otherand everything would be amazing.
I don't think most people go into marriage thinking, “Man, I
want this thing to last six and a half years and then move on to
someone else.” Most want the dream—
a relationship that lastsa lifetime.
But, how do we do that?
