Unintended Consequences

Often in marriage one or both partners may do something that they think they have thought through such as have an affair, file for divorce, ask their spouse to leave, or leave themselves, and then later realize that there were many consequences they hadn’t thought about nor prepared for.

A good visual illustration of unintended consequences is from this video from our hometown of a smokestack demolition that went awry. A couple of things to notice: the media thought they were far enough back to be safe, but they missed one crucial danger, and the child was the first to instinctively run when things went wrong. Many times we miss all the ramifications of our actions and often times children are sensitive to things going wrong in adult relationships.
