Hey gang ... 

Welcome to the Your Marriage Matterz podcast episode #019! We are asked all of the time what are the most common mistakes we see married couples make? So, to answer that question here is our podcast titled The 5 Most Common FAILS We See In Marriage Today And, What To Do About Them! 

Through the years we have seen these same 5 things pop up over and over again ... 

  • Fail #1 - unreasonable marital expectations
  • Fail #2 - not investing in the marriage
  • Fail #3 - not working to develop trust
  • Fail #4 - taking your spouse for granted
  • Fail #5 - not making marriage a priority

Guilty of any of these? If you said yes ... enjoy the podcast!

Hey folks ... 

Welcome to Your Marriage Matterz and YMM #015 - Turning Your Marriage Into A Team That Can't Lose! This is the last session in our Couples At the Crossroads series. In this episode we discuss 5 things that will help you create a team atmosphere within your marriage. 

You hear us constantly refer to our marriage as Team Jacobus and that we take on the world shoulder to shoulder as a team. Our 5 keys this week are:

  1. Be committed, or all in, on your marriage
  2. The Team comes before the individual
  3. Keep growing individually and collectively
  4. Be your team's biggest cheerleader
  5. Pass it on by teaching and mentoring others

Marriage wasn't meant to be a lonely individual endeavor but the joining of 2 people into one flesh. This podcast will get us on the way to making YOUR TEAM one that can't lose!

Thanks for listening ...

Hey folks ... 

Welcome to our Couples At the Crossroads series episode The Power of Effective Communication In YOUR Marriage. This week we discuss the critical marital skill of communication. And ... we are going to focus in on how important it is to be both a communicator and a listener by sharing our "Communication Rules of the Road"! Check it out ... 

Speaker Rules of the Road ... 

  • Right place, right time, right mood
  • Use "I" language instead of "You" 
  • Focus on one subject at a time
  • Give the listener time to respond
  • Put a time limit on sharing your thought

Listener Rules of the Road ... 

  • Give your undivided attention
  • Don't interrupt
  • Actively listen - eye contact, take notes and watch your body language
  • Repeat or paraphrase back what you heard to check for accuracy
  • Seek first to understand - then and only then, seek to be understood!

And, we gave you some homework this week to make a list of 10 Things I Love About My Spouse and to share it with each other using the Speaker/Listener Rules of the Road listed above!

Being intentional to improve our communication skills will greatly improve every area of life but specifically you will love what it does for your marriage!

Let us know if you have any questions by going to our Facebook page Your Marriage Matterz! Or, you can e-mail us info@yourmarriagematterz.com

Thanks for listening ...
