Do You Remember?

Do you remember your first date with your wife? What about the first time your husband kissed you? Thinking back to those early days of dating is a great way to rekindle the passion in your relationship. If it's possible, re-create your first date or re-enact your marriage proposal. Spend time just sitting on the couch together talking about what you thought the first time you met . . . or when you realized you...

Dealing with Emotional Wounds

We've all been wounded in life. Sometimes by others… a parent who walked out, a spouse who abused you, a child who rebelled.

Soon after my wife and I were married, we made a discovery. It seemed like when we argued, it was at night… when we were tired and irritable from a long day.

But sometimes, there have been years of neglect and loneliness…years of two people failing to give and love. As my wife and I often say to each other, there are always two sides to every story. And just as it may take two to pull the relationship apart, it takes...

Agree to Disagree in Marriage?

Most of the time, married couples should be in agreement. Especially when it comes to big things like your relationship, your family, your beliefs.
