Whoever says marriage is easy has either given up or they are the type of person who quits whenever things get tough. I believe that any time we are striving to become a better person, spouse, parent, employee, business owner, etc. it is a challenging process.  Change is seldom easy, especially when it comes from within. However, change is necessary in order for our marriages to grow.

/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"This can be done three ways; first, you have to support what she is doing or saying, which means you have to watch how you react to her ideas. Second, support what you are saying, which means giving her praise for her ideas. Third, a positive response to her ideas, as long as it is not a determent to the family, is your proof that you are with her 100%. As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words."
/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"First all, you must express that you both have the same goals in mind. You are two different people that think in different ways, it is a matter of playing your individual position on the team. When a team plays together, there is one important key they must have and that is communication. When you can express to one another exactly what you want to accomplish you can work as a team at all times."
/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"Being considerate is a great start to show that you are not taking her for granted. What I mean is when you do something or say something keep your wife in mind, especially when you are making a decision. When you make a decision that will affect her in a positive way, you are showing her, you genuinely care and are not taking her for granted."
/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"You can tell your spouse you love them by expression of beautiful words. Some would say buy expensive jewelry, but you cannot buy love. If you express yourself in kind words and in action you can say, “I love you” louder than you ever have before."
/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"I feel that a man should say no to his wife when it will jeopardize the family’s well being. Getting something new that is not life or death and will hurt the finances of the family is a good time to say no. The husband’s job is to protect the family in every way and this includes financial matters, my suggestion is to man up and say no and protect your family."
/carl and Yolanda Bennet answer your marriage questions"If you are caught in a cycle of disagreement regarding discipline, sit down and talk it over with your spouse. Once children know which parent will be the one who disciplines, they will be sure to run to the other parent in an attempt to work one against the other. An important point to remember is that regardless of which parent has delivered the discipline, the other parent should not speak out against that in front of the child. For discipline to be effective, unity is imperative. Showing unity in your decision will be the best way to limit any interference by the other parent and will let your children know who has the final say regarding discipline.

Make sure discipline is always the result of wanting what is best for your child. Discipline is not just punishment. Discipline is about changing behavior to conform to standards or expectations. Talk to your children about what you expect of them; you might be surprised to find that your children really do want to know what their boundaries are.
