Do you remember the early days of your relationship? Before you were Mr. and Mrs? When a certain look would drive him wild? You laughed hysterically at his jokes. You smiled when he walked into a room. You went out of your way to make him feel special. After years of marriage, hectic schedules, bills and hurt feelings, those flirty feelings can become distant memories. In the distraction of life, sometimes we forget we still need to flirt with ours husbands…. Read more

  Most women don’t have a problem with unconditional love– as long as they’re getting it. Most women understand the concept. What we don’t understand is the concept of unconditional respect. Yeah. That’s a struggle for a lot of us. If you’re thinking,  “What if he doesn’t deserve my respect?” You’d be normal. Or “I’m not giving him respect until he’s earned it;” you’d be even more normal. Respect has nothing to do with him and everything to do with… Read more

It’s the third time this week you’ve asked him to take out the trash. But the overflowing trash bin still sits in the same place, cluttering up the kitchen. It’s such a simple thing (that he knows drives you cray-cray), but he won’t follow through. The more you ask, the more excuses he makes. Soon you’re ticked and engaged in marital combat: The Complainer vs The Procrastinator. How do you deal with a procrastinating husband? It’s a game I know well…. Read more

Is it natural for you to greet your husband at the end of the day with a Pinterest-worthy meal and a kiss? Do you remind yourself you need to be a better wife? Do you lie in bed thinking, “I’ve really got to up (yaaaaaawn) my wife game?” Then you fall asleep. If I hold my husband’s hand and it’s not Sunday, he thinks something’s wrong. If I’m not thinking about it, my PDA (public display of affection) won’t go… Read more

I’d been rejected. I didn’t want to tell my husband because I was embarrassed. I was afraid he’d think less of me. Or he’d laugh at me. Rejection crushes your confidence. It knocks your emotional PH off balance. When your emotional PH is off balance, everything’s affected. I walked around with my lip poked out for a while. Then I dragged out my Bible and flipped though it. My fingers felt like lead. I landed on a verse about suffering…. Read more

Hard circumstances and marriage are common. One hundred percent of marriages go through hard times. And hard circumstances can tank your marriage. You may remember the story of how my fiancé dumped me months before the wedding. Imagine how that experience crushed left me. It affected my trust barrier. It affected my self-esteem and my self-worth. And it affected my relationship with my future husband. He had it bad because for years.  I was lost in a maze of deep-seated… Read more

It might not take a fatal blow– such as abuse or cheating– to destroy a marriage.  There might not be any big blows  at all but just a steady stream of nit pickiness, disrespect, criticism, sarcasm, and lack of boundaries that brings your marriage to a slow, painful end. Are you killing your marriage without even knowing it?   I’ve been guilty of sabotaging my marriage. Not intentionally. This Will Kill Your Marriage for Sure Here are 10 ways you… Read more

Marriage exposed a side of me that had never been so obvious: I am selfish. It’s still only thinly veiled, lurking right beneath the surface. Here’s what I mean. I couldn’t figure out why my favorite shower gel–which I have to drive all the way to the mall to buy– was disappearing at an alarming rate.Then I walked into the bathroom one day when my husband was in the shower. I smelled my gel. It dawned on me; he’d been… Read more

What’s your problem? That was a common refrain early in my marriage. Sometimes my husband’s reaction to something seemed way over the top. What appeared to be a minor thing evoked a response that was waaaaaay out of proportion. He’d turn a 50 cent issue into a $500 problem. That seemed to be a pattern of communication early in our marriage. I’d get angry, withdraw and think, “Get over it” or “What’s the big deal?” or  “He’s acting like such a… Read more

It’s no secret, women are notorious for beating around the bush when asking for what we need. It’s just not romantic when you have to Spell.It.Out. when it comes to emotional support. Beating around the bush is a complete waste of time. SPOILER ALERT: Your husband is not going to get it. It seems more romantic if he somehow just knows what you need and gives it to you. But he doesn’t have an Emotional Intimacy Detector. We all need… Read more
