When it comes to cultural messages about marriage, we are being scammed as well. We are being sold ideas that contain “fine print,” setting up couples for failure long before they walk down the aisle. Here are some of the popular marriage messages (scams) that have saturated our culture:

Conflict is a sign of a troubled relationship.
Your spouse should automatically know what you need.
Living together is a great way to see if you’re compatible.
Your spouse will “complete” you.
Marriage is about being happy.
As wonderful as those messages may sound, the faulty beliefs create unrealistic expectations that undermine the foundation of a marriage relationship.
