You and Your Spouse Have Differences and the Problem Is Not What You Think It Is

If you have been married for any time at all, you have become keenly aware of the differences between you and your spouse. I am talking about the kind of differences that drive you bonkers. One of you makes decisions quickly and decisively and the other makes them slowly and methodically. This kind of thing drives you both crazy. One of you gets your feelings hurt easily and the other never seems to feel anything at all. Or one of you is very punctual and respectful of other's time and the other one of you seems to have little concept of time and is always running late…

Your Self Interest is Killing Affection in Your Marriage

Do you ever read something, stop and ponder for a moment, then say, "Wow, that was profound!" That's exactly what I did the other day when I read the following quote.

Self-interest is the enemy of all true affection. ~F.D. Roosevelt

Your Marriage Really Is What You Think It Is!

I recently read a great book by Dr. David Stoup called, "You Are What You Think."

I love teaching people how they can mold their brains in ways that allow them to have better lives and marriages. Others have referred to our brains as, "The Amazing Plastic Brain" because our brains are so moldable…

A Common Marriage Misconception About Your Type

Do you ever wonder what "your type" is? Have you ever thought about that? When thinking about who we are and are not attracted to, we need to understand two things about our type. What is our type? And who is our type? Before we answer those questions, allow me to show you how important it is to work this out. Sooner or later, virtually everyone involved in a committed relationship will experience conflict in that relationship. This includes you and me too! When you do, you will likely ponder the following statement or something like it, "I just don't love him/her anymore and I realize now that he/she is not my type."…
