    Newlyweds First Home Should Be A New Home

    You have been renting for years, or maybe you’ve bought your home and put your loving stamp on it. Surely, now that you’ve gotten married it makes sense for your spouse to move in with you. Or maybe you’re quite happy to say goodbye to your palace and move into your new life partner’s house and claim that as your marital home. From a financial and ‘ease-of-life’ point of view, either one of those options would make absolute sense…wouldn’t it? Well, yes….I guess. Maybe in the short run. And definitely, there are people who have gone that route and have successfully merged their lives seamlessly. However, I have seen plenty…

    Are You Exchanging Your Peaceful Marriage For Pride?

    Peace peace peace! It’s one of those things that you really don’t value or appreciate until you live without it then gain it in abundance. Mr. Chiwoko and I really didn’t appreciate the invaluable benefits of living in with peaceful marriage. After years of fighting to win, we have come to realise that being able to walk away from a lengthy back and forth argument just doesn’t compare to seeking for peace wherever possible. The benefits of peace are numerous, including good health and a fortified marital relationship. More benefits of peace. Now as I look back, I realise that we were actually exchanging our peace for pride! It was…

    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. This is partly because of differing attitudes towards money and avoiding real planning around the finances of the family.

    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…

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…

    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…
