When the stock market crashed in 2008 I kinda, sorta… panicked (to put it mildly). I was convinced that economic collapse, martial law, and the end of the world as I knew it would arrive by the end of the year. So the next day while my wife and I were at the grocery store, I started dumping armfuls of canned food into the shopping cart.

“What the hell are you doing?” she said, looking at me as if I were taking a leak on the Spaghettios. I had told her that we needed to stock up on extra food, but I never said how much. Although my wife had no problem with preps for hurricane season, she had no interest in anything beyond that.

As she looked at me, her face a mixture of anger and confusion, I suddenly realized that if I didn’t handle this carefully, it would be a huge strain on our marriage. Rather than get into a fight in the middle of the grocery store, I put some of the food back. On the way home, I explained my concerns to her. She thought I was overreacting (and it turns out she was right), but we managed to avoid getting into a heated argument.

Ok guys, I’m not here to say I have a perfect marriage because I’d be lying through my teeth. What I’m here to say is that your marriage is part of preparedness also. What good is being able to survive the apocalypse if your fighting with or don’t get along with your spouce?

A memorable quote from the movie Fireproof “But Caleb, man, I’ve seen you run into a burning building to save people you don’t even know. But you’re gonna let your own marriage just burn to the ground.” – Let that sink in.

This podcast and blog are a great place to start. These two (Tony and Alisa) are about as brutally honest and open and uncencored as they get. Check them out. Subscribe. Listen, etc…

Snippet “How many of you have ever tried to convince your spouse to do something that was outside of their comfort zone? Did you have a lot of success? When we have these partners in our lives, we try to share most if not all of our lifestyle with our significant other. This accomplishes two goals. First, we get to do something we are interested in with the person we most want to be around in the world. The second reason is that if our spouse is doing it, we can get away with a lot more, right?”
