Is Texting Hurting Your Marriage?
I wonder what would happen if a marriage counsellor made it standard practice to start each session by reviewing texts the couple had sent each other since they last met. If this were done without warning the counsellor would quickly learn things that could take months to uncover. And they would get a good honest picture of it. If the couple knew their texts would be reviewed, I bet they would text far less and try to be much kinder.
I think we would all do well to pretend our texts with our spouse will be read by someone whose opinion matters to us. It would cut out a lot of the anger and nastiness, and it would cause us to think twice before we hit send.
