Be Above the Bashing

  Maybe you’re guilty of it. No doubt you’ve witnessed it. Or, perhaps you’ve simply acknowledged it with an “Amen, girl” or an all-caps “YES” comment on another mom’s Facebook rant. Dad bashing.

There is no doubt that marriage can be hard, but throw in a kid or two, or four, and there are times your marriage can be hanging by a thread.
