Not proud of Obama?s shift on gay marriage

Division of Labor with the Marriage
2012-05-11 09:00:00
Division of Labor with the Marriage Sometimes people think that divorce is caused by major sources of conflict. In reality, it is usually smaller sources of conflict that are left unresolved and eventually they become big sources of conflict. Division of labor is one of those issues that can lead to big conflicts. Division of labor includes the day to day household chores such as cooking, cleaning and caring for children. Determining who is going to do which activities around the house can be a source of many arguments. Maybe you like the house to be clean but your spouse can tolerate a little more “mess.” Perhaps you do the cooking and expect your spouse to clean up afterward but find dirty dishes still waiting for you the next day. Maybe you are concerned that the garage is always a mess, the closets are overflowing, and the ceiling is leaking and your spouse prefers to spend the day doing a leisure time activity. The source of this conflict usually comes down to values. What...
Learning How to Have a Better Marriage Now Through Acceptance
2012-05-11 08:49:00
Learning How to Have a Better Marriage Now Through Acceptance If you were to complete the rest of the sentence, “My marriage would be good if…” what would you say? What sorts of things do you imagine would need to happen before your marriage could be better? It’s important to recognize that you may not need to experience any big changes. Instead, you may be able to make your marriage better today by using acceptance. Change the Way You Think Sometimes people think there needs to be a change before their marriage can be good. For example, a husband may think, “My marriage will be better once my wife starts working again.” Or a wife may think, “Our marriage would be good if my husband wasn’t such a slob.” Waiting for something to change often means you don’t put in any effort to make the marriage better in the meantime. Waiting until things are better gives you an excuse not to make things better today. It can also take the pressure off you. It can allow you to bl...
