How To Get Your Spouse To Hear You

June 29th, 2007

Are you trying to get heard? Do you feel ignored? Is your spouse not responding to your communication?

We live in an interesting time. With one click, you can communicate with anyone in the world. Its easy, quick, and free. You even have options. If you dont want to click, you could dial, beep, page, instant-message, or Fed Ex.

Its true. Your ability to communicate with the outside world has become increasingly easy. But my guess is that your ability to communicate with your spouse has become increasingly difficult.

The reason for this is that most people confuse INFORMATION communication with PERSONAL communication. Technological advancements give us all sorts of options to communicate information.

But how do you feel the pulse of someones soul? How do you communicate the subtleties in your heart? You cant text message that. You can have the latest and greatest in communication gadgets, but it wont matter.

PERSONAL communication is a whole different ball game. And its PERSONAL communication that determines the success or failure of your marriage.

How To Know If Your Marriage Will Survive

June 26th, 2007

If you had to pick ONE THING that best predicts whether or not your marriage will succeed, what would you pick?

You might say ‘conflict.’ If you fight a lot, then thats not a good sign, right? WRONG.

Would you believe that its the opposite?! Thats right; research shows that the number one predictor of divorce is the habitual AVOIDANCE of conflict. In other words, a couple who does NOT fight is at the greatest risk for divorce.

A couple came to me for private phone sessions and I asked them what was going on in their relationship.

‘We never talk,’ Kathy said.

‘Why not,’ I asked.

‘Because we realized that thats when we fight,’ she responded.

Isnt it ironic? We try to avoid conflict with our spouse for the benefit of our relationship. But theres nothing MORE damaging to your marriage than NOT fighting.

How Do You Know If You Married The Right Person?

June 24th, 2007

EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies.

Falling in love with your spouse wasnt hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didnt have to DO anything. Thats why its called ‘falling’ in love-¦because its happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, ‘I was swept of my feet.’ Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling is love is easy. Its a passive and spontaneous experience.

But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. Its the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouses idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

Are You Truly Marriage Material?

November 24th, 2006

Is marriage becoming an outdated concept in a world of Hollywood-style divorces and disposable spouses? With celebrities filing for divorce almost every other day, and the awful stats on marriage and divorce, it’s a wonder that people bother getting hitched in the first place.

But, I think the real reason divorce is hitting an all time high, and belief in marriage as an institution is waning, is that the new generation (and young women, in particular) have far more choices open to them today, than their parents ever had.

And by choices I mean the ability, means, and legal sanction to:

- Leave an abusive relationship. Whereas most women of our parent’s generation would have chosen to stay in an abusive relationship (and still do), young women today have much greater support from parents, society and the law, and when faced with that choice, they are more likely to opt out, and with good reason).

- Pursue happiness aggressively. Whether that means choosing to leave an unfulfilling relationship because of irreconcilable differences, growing apart or career choices, young people have greater legal and societal support to end a marriage than their parents did.

While the aim of being in a happy, fulfilling relationship is worth pursuing, it takes a lot of work and sacrifice, not to mention loyalty and commitment, to make a go of it. Young people today seem far less committed to their relationships, and less tolerant of differences.

After all, why bother, when it’s so easy to end something that isn’t working and start over with someone new? What they don’t realise, however, is that the issues that plagued them in their old relationships are likely to follow them into the new relationship as well.

For women, in particular, the pressure to settle down and have kids makes many of them rush into marriage without assessing the suitability of the person they’ve chosen as a life partner.

The question, then, is not whether marriage is an outdated institution, but whether you and your partner are marriage-material. Do you both have what it takes to make a good marriage? Are you truly ready for marriage and all it entails?

Here are some things you need to do if you’re in a relationship or planning to take the plunge.

Get Rid Of Your Illusions

Like a thirsty man running towards a mirage in a desert, the false belief that marriage is going to make you happy is the cause of many a divorce. If you’re miserable when single, you’ll be miserable when married. That’s a fact. As long as you keep believing that you need another person to “complete” you, you’ll be chasing a mirage of happiness, and end up disappointed every time. Our limiting beliefs about marriage are what prevent many couples from staying in what would otherwise be happy, fulfilling relationships. Getting rid of your illusions about marriage and the opposite sex will eliminate one of the biggest obstacles to having a successful marriage.

Know What You Want

Before you decide to settle down with one person, it’s smart to date until you have the maturity and clarity to know your own needs, and know what you expect from yourself and your partner. Dating allows you to learn more about the opposite sex, teaches you what sort of people to avoid, and helps you understand how to deal with the inevitable problems that crop up.

Don’t Rush Things

Instead of giving in to the heady emotion that accompanies “falling in love” and rushing into a commitment you might regret, take the time to get to know each other for at least a couple of years (anything before that is a risk) before deciding whether you want to spend your lives together. Ending a relationship can be painful, but it’s much less painful than a divorce, especially when there are kids involved.

Live In The Moment

Instead of keeping one eye on the goal (marriage) and pressuring your partner into a commitment, learn to live in the moment, appreciate your partner for who they are, and enjoy your time together. Take every relationship as a learning experience, because that’s exactly what it is.

Educate Yourself

Learn what it takes, and doesn’t take, to build a great relationship. Is the opposite sex a mystery to you? There are plenty of books and courses that will help you learn more about them. I recommend some of the best ones on my sites below.

Get Your Act Together

If you are unable to take responsibility for your emotions, have codependent tendencies, or addictions (that can be lethal to a relationship), approach a counsellor and learn healthy ways to communicate with your partner, manage anger, deal with disappointment, stress and sexual needs. These skills will stand you in good stead when your marriage hits the inevitable bumps along the way.

Deserve What You Want

In an earlier article titled “How to Attract The Mate Of Your Dreams“, I wrote that the best way to attract a great partner is to become one yourself. You’ll find some good books that teach you how to become a great partner here.

Practice Unconditional Love

The popular notion of love is that it’s a feeling, an emotion. But is that really true? While being in love does generate powerful feelings and emotions, those are actually the symptoms or effect of love. In a spiritual sense, love is a way of life, a way of being. We do not fall in love or feel love. We practice love. Love is about doing, not feeling. Practice unconditional love towards yourself and others. Learn to treat people with the love and respect they deserve. Act from your higher self at all times and you’ll be rewarded with a lifetime of love and happiness.
