How To Set Financial Goals As A Married Couple

How to set financial goals as a married couple
When it comes to important areas of marriage that couples need to discuss regularly and that if not approached correctly can cause major issues, finances appear high on the list. For various reasons, many couples struggle to really get to grips with their finances and find it hard to be completely united in approaches.

You’ve Ruined My Day!

Wow! We give so much power to other people. A fellow human being has the power to control whether we have a good or bad day? Really? "You've ruined my day" is something I used to say to my husband all the time. I would wake up in the morning and the determination on whether or not I would have a day full of positive vibes, energy, passion and joy would be based on whether Mr Chiwoko and I had had a disagreement. If we DID have a disagreement, then that would be it. BAD day decreed, declared and received. Didn't matter what plans I had for the rest of the day, I would approach that day with a bitter taste in my mouth and a burden...

How To Revive Your Sex Life

  Sex sex sex sex sex! Praise the Lord for SEX! Of all the ideas the Lord had, sex is one many of us are very grateful for. Hahaha. A gift to marriage, sex is the highest level of physical intimacy a couple can share. It's a subject we all need to talk about more but most of us shy away from. We also think that once we get married and are completely free to have as much sex as we could possibly manage we'll be swinging from the chandeliers having exciting passionate love-making sessions every single day and loving it! And there are couples that have it like that. They enjoy a healthy sex life within their marriage that is almost like a steamy scene...

Let It Slide, Keep Smiling, Maintain Peace In Your Marriage

I’m not trying to win every fight. I’m trying to win the success of my marriage. And if that means letting some things go, not always having the final word and sometimes just agreeing to disagree then so be it. I don’t need to win every fight anymore because I’m in this for the long haul. I’ve got my sights set on the prize of a marriage filled with understanding, peace and friendship. The problem with trying to ‘win’ every fight or even just fighting until someone wins (there are no real winners in a fight between husband and wife) is that in the process people get hurt, and some wounds leave lasting scars. Words get thrown out that can’t be...

Face The Pain of the Reality

our spouse has cheated on you. It’s a betrayal and a dishonour to your marriage. Regardless of the reasons, who with, where and how - the fact is it has happened and you have to face that truth. It's not a dream nor a nightmare. It's a fact, and no brushing over it is going to change that. You can’t ignore it or pretend it never happened because the consequences of the betrayal will eat away at you and your marriage until you are forced to face it head on. It is better to face the pain of the reality now. Anger, hurt, confusion, disappointment, anguish…. As you face the pain of the reality, you’ll feel all of the this and more....

Start Your Journey To Self-Love

It’s a downward spiral… Now your looking for compliments, looking in the mirror to make sure there’s not a hair out of place…you go out of your way to be seen by someone just so they can say you look good. The day no one compliments you, you hang your head low! You have put your self-worth in other people’s hands. People that honestly have other things on their minds. No one is waiting to see your outfit. No one woke up thinking about how you are going to look today. NO ONE! Only one opinion matters, YOUR OWN. Your self-worth is determined by you! Do you feel good about you without someone there to make you feel good? Accept yourself regardless...
