The Control Freak

You know, Gerry Spence, world famous attorney said something very interesting in an interview about his marriage on day.


He said, “The day I finally realized I didn’t need to control my wife and if I did I would destroy our marriage was the day our marriage began.”


Isn’t that an amazing insight?


It is a struggle for all of us just to release control of the person we love.


Well you know I wrote a book some years ago called The Control Freak.


Yes you did.


I call it your autobiography.


I know you do.


I like control, and we both do.


Everybody is somebody’s control freak some of the time.


But when we give up some of that control in our own marriage that’s the day our marriage can really begin.
