As simple as marriage was designed to be, there are lots of issues we encounter along the way that makes us wonder if we made the right choice or if we can live with our choices for the rest of our lives. This is why it is important from time to time to encourage ourselves as married people on managing some of these expectations or dealing better with challenges we face. One major culprit of marital conflict is financial challenges. Just like any other challenge with marriage, financial challenges can be subdued by overcoming our fears and exercising self-control. However, when the financial challenges become pressures then there’s only one culprit – materialism. … More Financial pressures & Materialism in marriage

Whether you’re newly married or 10 years into marriage, sexual incompatibility can happen to anyone. So if you wondering, “Is it possible to prevent sexual incompatibility?” is “Yes,” it can be prevented or at least reduced by better preparation for marriage, but the answer is also, “No,” in that there will still be some degree of incompatibility once you put all the pieces of marriage together.
By all means discuss it ahead of time with a potential spouse if it’ll make you more comfortable. But once you get married, whatever the sexual situation is, that’s what you have to work with as well as you can. And of course, you might have to learn some things and change some things as well, whether it be your attitude, your responses, your level of patience and understanding, your thoughts and core beliefs, or your degree of faith, etc. Whatever the situation, you just have to work happily with it. … More I don’t think we are actually sexually compatible

How should we respond when we are upset with one thing or the other in the church? What do we tell our kids when they see others criticizing their church on social media, for instance? What do we say when people in the community ask, “What’s going on at your church?” Even I want to ask these questions sometimes but I fear upsetting the course of the church. … More Fighting through church controversies

Depending on how we were raised and the circumstances surrounding our upbringing, we all turn out differently regardless of what society expects of us. This is why one wife can believe totally to depend on her husband for every need, every expense and hold on to his every word and another believes she is an active participant in the home, having equal say in every matter. While these different practices it might work well for an understanding and deserving husband, in a miss-matched case, it could be recipe for disaster. An example is the scenario where a husband wants his wife to be challenging, not all the time yielding. This causes him to disrespect his wife even more and be less attracted to her by the day. Yet she is instilling the same morals into her daughter which he finds even more irritable. While on the other hand, you’ll find husbands who want this scenario in their homes but their wives have so much voice they can’t be shut out. In the former situation, this is why a woman would strain herself and children in the name of protecting the authority and respect of her husband as opposed to enjoy being a helpful loyal helpmate. … More Is a wife entirely at her husband’s mercy?
