What makes a marriage successful? I do a lot of research and reading in this area. My thought is that if I can figure out what makes marriages work, I might gain some insight into what makes them NOT work, and if I know what works and what doesn’t, maybe I can better help my clients in mediation. After all, people who mediate have a lot of courage to go through the mediation process. It’s pretty uncomfortable talking to mediators (strangers, really) about everything you care anything about in the entire world. As mediators, we never forget that.
Anyway, I am always interested to hear what others have to say about this, so I always carry my Flip video camera with me. I know, I know, I could use my Droid, but I feel like my Flip is my friend and it’s so easy to use.
So when I can find someone willing to talk on camera about what works in a marriage, I’m all ears.
