Marriage rarely begins in crisis. There are exceptions to this but it’s certainly not the rule. Marital problems usually start off small and almost undetected. If left alone, however, they could grow into a full-blown crisis. How do you determine whether your marriage is in this state or not?
I stood in our backyard frustrated, angry, and glaring through the window at my wife. We were on separate pages and the outlook was bleak.

It was more like a slow trickle that gradually, over time, eroded the ground of our marriage away. We had work to do and we needed to start immediately.
