Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg
Barb Rosberg: I am yours and you are mine. What does that mean? It means whatever we are going through – whatever challenges, whatever difficulties, whatever trials – we’re going to get to the other side together. Every couple needs to know that there is a sense of unconditional commitment to one another, because we are quarterbacking for the marriage. In fact, as we stand back and we think about those issues that get in the way of our marriage, that get in between us, that cause us to go to different corners of the home, we need to realize that the relationship of marriage has got to be far more important than any issue that you’re going through. In fact, we used to teach at a lot of conferences that we would say these words: my mate is not my enemy. No way! There’s a boundary, a sacred hedge, around your marriage and it’s there to guard and protect you. Remember these words – the relationship has got to be far more important than the issue.
