Marital Accountability Check-ups

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

I always suggest to couples that they have recurring Marital Accountability Check-ups.  A regular open, honest marital check-up is probably one of the most important things you can do for your relationship.

It can also be beneficial to have the check-up with a competent marriage counselor.  However if that is not your choice, I have listed a few questions below to help you just get started with your Marital Accountability Check-up.  I am sure you will have other “How” and “What” questions for each other.

Discuss together:

  1. What 3 things do you enjoy the most about me as your spouse?
  2. What were our 3 best times together in the last year?
  3. Verbally, how can I better prove my love to you?
  4. Physically, how can I better prove my love to you?
  5. Over the next year, what annoyance should I stop or modify?
  6. What would be a small improvement in our sexual intimacy for you?
  7. What goals do you have for our marriage in the next year?

TODAY:  Schedule two different days and times where you can spend at least 30 minutes having a Marital Accountability Check-up.

Every Spouse Has Numerous Choices!

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

 Unfortunately, in marriage counseling I have heard thousands of disappointing comments like:  “I simply forget to regularly give meaningful hugs and kisses”; “I just can’t ever forgive”; “When I am upset I have to yell”; “Right now, I just don’t have time for our marriage”; “I know our marriage would benefit but I won’t do _____.” All of those sad comments are both excuses and choices.

Many things in both life and a marriage are beyond one’s control.  However, what is definitely within our control are our personal choices!  We can absolutely choose what we do and say in order to make a difference in the lives of others as well as all our relationships.

Choices build up or tear down a marriage.  Hence, a marriage can be changed and improved simply by making healthy choices, not excuses! And when both spouses strive to make positive choices, then a happy, satisfying marriage is usually the outcome.

TODAY:  Make positive, encouraging choices with your spouse (if married), family members, and friends.

Time Means Everything!  

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

A wonderful synonym for LOVE IS TIME!  You can determine what you love in life by how you spend your time.  Are we spending most of our time on hobbies, television, work, video games, projects, technology, etc.?

Great marriages, happy families, and responsible children are the result of planned time together in so many ways.  Leisure time, mealtimes, laughing time, working time, one-on-one time, prayer time, enrichment time, faith time, life-long education time, relaxing time are all essential for a satisfying life and rewarding relationships.

We absolutely cannot let our lives and our time happen by chance!  Consciously planning and scheduling our personal time and relationship time makes the critical difference!

TODAY:  Plan your personal and relationship time to have a meaningful life and close connections with spouse, children, family, and friends!
