I’m thinking about starting a support group for couples experiencing relationship problems. I’ll call it, “The George and Barbara Motivational Group.”
I’ll start with the letter George Bush wrote when they announced their engagement. “I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought about the immeasurable joy that will be ours someday. Goodnite, my beautiful. Every time I say beautiful, you about kill me, but you’ll have to accept it.”
I’ll share my engagement story. “I discovered I was pregnant. I had resolved to never marry again. My husband asks me if I want to get married.”
“I say I guess that makes sense. Insurance and all. Then we got dressed and went to work.”
Then each couple will write each other love letters. If they are unable to feel the love they can pretend they are writing a star they fantasize about.
