​At Some Point, the Majority of Spouses Will Wonder if They Married They Wrong Person.

There is so much wrong with this line of thinking. We are not saying there is something wrong with you, by the way, since this line of thinking is so pervasive in our culture. This thinking will affect us all. So the job falls to us to teach you why this mindset is so flawed. This flawed thinking is based on the notion that there is one, and only one, perfect person for you on this planet. Only one! Remember that there are approximately 7.5 billion people on the planet. This “finding a needle in a haystack” kind of mentality tricks us into believing that when, not if, something feels wrong in our marriage…

How Going to a Wedding Can Strengthen Your Marriage

Tami and I have been to several weddings in the last few weeks. This has us thinking a lot about how each of us is impacted by attending a wedding. There are generally two ways that people think about a wedding they have been invited to. First, some people have a hard time getting "into it" because they have so much on their plates. They see this wedding, and all of the details surround it (buying gifts, wrapping gifts, attending bachelor/bachelorette parties, getting your suit/dress cleaned, etc.) as overwhelming.

We recently took a trip to Chelan, Washington with some friends. While there, we attended a special dinner event at Siren Song Wines. The event featured some great Spanish-influenced wines as well as some amazing food including Spanish Paella. As if great food and wine were not enough, we enjoyed some authentic Flamenco dancing while at the event too. The dancing was really incredible! It was a really fun date night. While having dinner, the four of us sat directly in front of a fireplace that had a profoundly interesting piece of art hanging above it. As two happily married couples that have seen our share of unhappy marriages over the years…

The Power of the Marriage Vow- Part 2

What you and I choose to believe about marriage is wrapped up in how we view The Vow. When I say, “The Vow,” I am referring to the holy (set apart for a purpose) and sacred (connected to God) commitment that was made (or will be made) on your wedding day. This is a promise, a covenant, and a pledge between a husband and a wife and the God who breathed life into them. How you respond to the promise you made will determine who you are — whether you like it or not. This promise, and adequate respect for it, matters more than you probably realize. Let me paint a picture for you…

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."…
