We all know the line in marriage vows, “till death do us part”; but let’s face it, marriages aren’t lasting until death. One or both spouses are wanting out and it’s getting easier to do. When problems arise, one spouse, if not both, tend to want to run from the marriage instead of working through the issues.  I’m not making light of anyone’s situation, but there’s nothing you can’t work through if both parties or even one of you are willing to work on the situation. So, what should you do if your spouse wants out of the marriage but…

I recently had the honor to appear as a guest on a relationship expert’s podcast speaking on interfaith marriage. After thinking on this topic and appearing on his podcast, I decided to blog about faith in marriage. Faith is complete trust or confidence in someone or something. I choose to put my trust and confidence in God; some choose other religions or spiritual beings. No matter who or what you choose to put your trust in, your faith is what carries you through the good and the bad in life. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the…

This time of the year often makes us reflect on our lives and makes us realize how blessed we truly are. There are small things as well as some big things we often overlook and never give our gratitude for. It’s always easy to focus on what we don’t have instead of appreciating what we have. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us to “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”.  Often in our lives it’s hard to rejoice let alone give thanks when circumstances arise that are not favorable….

As we all know, there are many reasons spouses withdraw from each other. Sometimes the withdrawal period will be a short time; other times it could be a lot longer. None of us like the feeling of a withdrawn spouse and must realize at times it has nothing to do with us but them. The key is to find out why your spouse has withdrawn from you and try to work on it. Below I have listed the top 10 reasons I think women withdraw from their marriage/spouse. 1. Lack of Appreciation/Respect: When a woman feels unappreciated for all she…

Kids are a wonderful gift from God! But let’s face it; many times the busyness of taking care of the kids leave you with little or no room for yourself or your spouse. After drop off/pick up, extra curricular activities, homework and every other thing pertaining to kids; who has time to read a book, write a blog or even think? Well, we have to find the balance between taking care of the kids and our spouse. Many times (not always) one spouse ends up being the parent that does “running around” for the kids which leads to one tired…

Unity: “the state of being united or joined as a whole; the number one”. When a man and woman are joined together in marriage (vows/commitment), they become one. The bible says in Genesis 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” One flesh…so what does that mean? Does that mean we have to think alike, dress alike, do everything alike? No. It means that you come together as one when making decisions in life. The way you discipline your children; how you handle your finances;…
