Tip #49: Wives, if you earn more than he does, show even more appreciation

As women’s earning power has changed over the last fifty years, so have marriage dynamics – and having a great relationship means knowing how to handle the new normal. According to a 2013 Pew Research study, among married couples in 1960, just six percent of women earned more than their husbands. Today, the number is 24 percent. FULL POST

Tip #48: When things get heated, be more kind.

All of us have seen that our words can be that “spark” that sets the whole forest on fire, as the Bible puts it. And I’m guessing that when you or I are at odds with a friend or colleague and having an intense “discussion,” we are usually very mindful of what we say. When things suddenly get heated, we try to be careful about how we phrase things, so we don’t start that fire unnecessarily. Right? FULL POST

Tip #47: Wives, Be Your Husband’s Best Cheerleader – Especially When He Gets Hit!

Not long ago, speaking at a large church one weekend, I was very touched when I learned the code name the security team had given the wife of the senior pastor. These men were all business as a security and protection detail, but they also had fun with it and in each code name they tried to capture something important about that person. FULL POST

Tip #46: Husbands, say “we’re okay” before sleeping on it

Guys, there you are, late at night, in the middle of an argument, exhausted, frustrated-- and still going at it, because you’ve been advised, “Don’t go to bed mad.” You are so tired you don’t even know what you’re thinking right then, much less how to magically get happy again, so you can go to bed. And your blood pressure is rising because every time you say “we need to sleep on it,” your wife looks panicky and says “No, we need to resolve it!” FULL POST

Tip #45: Wives, Think Before You Blurt!

Tip #40: Wives, let your husband think things through before pressing to talk

Last week at an event, a woman told me, “I’m so frustrated at my husband. He’s a great guy, but I feel like he’s an avoider. The minute I bring up something hard, he refuses to talk about it. Like this morning. He wouldn’t agree to challenge the kids’ teacher about something she is doing, and I was telling him all the reasons I think we should, but then he wouldn’t even talk about it to explain his reasoning!” FULL POST
