Ron: Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Well, believe it or not, sometimes people plan to fail. A designer in the Netherlands has a new concept for a floating house. Now get this: designed like two puzzle pieces, the house separates so if you’re unhappy you cast your spouse adrift. Now, when your marriage drifts apart, you can detach the two units and each partner can drift apart in their own home. It’s called, “Prenuptial Housing.”

What? Really? We’re designing houses prepared for failure. Why not invest that much energy and planning into being successful? For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
