A common issue for many couples that results in frustration and disharmony is missing the beat with your sex drive. One wants it more than the other creating a sense of rejection and loneliness every time a pass is batted away. Then you have the other person who wants it less and now feels like its a chore or marital duty.
Toxic people can do major damage to your marriage. The whole person isn’t toxic. But, their behavior is toxic or your relationship with the person is toxic.
Ladies, be curious about your husband. Ditch the obligatory “How was your day?” and replace it with unique, thought provoking, open-ended questions.
Have you been there before? A fight in public, or maybe in front of family or friends in someone else’s home? We have . . . dozens of times. It makes you feel frustrated and restricted because you can’t completely lose it in front of others even though you feel like you want to pull your hair out and kill your spouse. It can also make the people around you feel very awkward and nervous.
Our wives want to see that we show interest in who they are, their struggles, their dreams, their friends. But we can’t expect them to pour out their heart without our participation.
