S02E004, It’s Gone Pear Shaped, Marriage Matters

Avatar The BerryBunch | 13/08/2022


In this week’s Marriage Matters, Andy B and Jo face the fact that things can go wrong and use the phrase ‘pear shaped’ to describe difficulties in marriage. Jo wants us to know that they are not being ‘pearist’ and have nothing against pears! And, as usual, Jo and Andy share their own experiences to encourage and support us in celebrating marriages in spite of these unattractive problems and help us find a healthy way to grow our marriages.

In this episode, Andy and Jo encourage us to keep going in our marriages and work at creating peace and harmony in the home in spite of problems and to let understanding and forgiveness rule.

Andy reminds us that the bible is full of good stuff to help us in our marriages and Jo is amazed at how God turns things around and brings good out of our trials. Andy and Jo highlighted these scripture verses:

  • Mathew 7:5
  • James 1:19
  • Mathew 18:15 -20

The Meaty Section

Andy and Jo chew through some difficult topics and try and make sense of it all.

#RealTalk and #RealLife is just what we do!

Tips and Resources

  • Find a mature, Godly married couple to spend time with and to learn from them
  • Visit marriage.com for useful articles proving possible solutions to your marriage problems.

The Take Away

Jo – “There’s so much great advice around in books, from churches, through videos – there’s help, so never think you’re on your own!”

Andy – “The Bible always has the answer to the struggles we have. It also shows us the best way to nurture, grow and strengthen your marriage.”
