You and your spouse are biologically, spiritually and experientially different people. Today we discuss a few practical ways to end the arguments and gain understanding for the betterment of your marriage.
WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT:
The biological differences between you and your spouse have the opportunity to cause a lot of tension. You were also raised completely differently in different homes and you both have a very different relationship with God.
The differences between ourselves and our spouses can bring us closer together – if only we let them. We must put an end to the expectations for our spouse to parent like us, sleep like us, clean the house just like us, socialize like us, love like us and pursue God just like us.
Today Lindsey and Amaris are discussing:
-Healthy communication in marriage
-Practical tips to help stop the bickering once and for all
-Putting an end to unrealistic expectations
-Why you should never say ‘never’ (or ‘always’) in your marriage
-How to find balance with football and video game loving husbands
-Acceptance vs. Compromise

I want to thank you both so much for your honesty and transparency. I am in the season of having an infant son with my husband. He is 7 months old now. It has been rough lately with not sleeping and the new demands on our lives, relying on each other and the laundry list of things to do around the house. We are so different! This has been pushing us apart in our hearts and minds. I am so happy to hear you acknowledge this and know that this can be a positive thing and is how God made us. I would love to communicate better with my husband and to stop the fighting! My husband is an amazing man, father and a believe in Christ. I am so very blessed, just need to get through this season and remember that we are on the same TEAM and remember in the heat of it that he has my best interest in mind. Thank you so much for the perspective! We needed your help. God definitely spoke through you into my marriage and answered our prayers.
