Making Marriage Work

Leo Babauta’s Zen Habits blog has been a must-read for me for a long time. He’s a minimalist who has streamlined his life in ways that thrill and terrify me simultaneously, and gotten his entire family on board with “simple living” principles in big ways.

Like most of us, his life isn’t entirely bread and roses and he’s had a previous marriage fail along the way as well as the usual intimate struggles with his current wife. But he’s done such an excellent job of documenting things along the way that even when he’s providing some fairly simplistic, superficial glimpses into processes that have worked out better for him this time around, I find he always gives me more to chew on than the simple words imply. And he’s breath-takingly honest about the places where changes are still very much works in progress where sometimes things work… and sometimes, not so much.
