EPISODE 57 - WHAT UNSPOKEN MARRIAGE RULES ARE DESTROYING YOUR MARRIAGE?
Believe it or not, we all have "rules" in our marriage that are unspoken, unwritten and unconscious, and we play this destructive "game" with our spouse that they have to figure out the "rules" we have for them in order to have a happy marriage.
Well, you can imagine how well this works. It doesn't.
On today's show we will be discussing:
How do rules get determined in your marriage?
What rules have you set up for your spouse (unwritten and unspoken)?
How can you change your rules so that you WIN at the game of marriage?
Defining singleness. What does it mean?
What are the reasons WHY people are single? Is it down to circumstance or is it a choice?
What are the differences between the Western culture and the African culture regarding being single?
What are the things single people are tired of hearing?
Singleness, is it ever a disease or a state of being?
Is marriage for everyone? Yes? No? Why?
All of these and much more will be discussed on tonight's episode of LOVE IN THE HOUSE at 9PM GMT.

It has been proven that fewer and fewer people are tying the knot, and a new study reveals just how much marriage rate has declined in the last century. People often wonder why some of us get married, especially now that it is obvious that there is decline in marriage; Dr. Flanagan, an American psychologist suggests that, people get married ‘because we want someone who can be a student of us, and the reason why we get unmarried is that, over the time, the students become teachers and no one is ready to learn, also by forgetting to tend to one another’…. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society that we address this issue together.
Many changes in the last half century have played massive effect on marriage and divorce rates...
This week's show "The Reality of Marriage" Oliver and Denise will be coming on. They both make up "Marriage is Our Ministry" and will bring insight from their experience and perspective.
Marriage has become so many things these days. The media paints a fairy tale romance never ending facade, but I'm confident marriage is so much more than that. If marriage were so easy, I'm sure everyone would be getting it right. This is not to say that a couple cannot experience romance and butterflies in their stomachs. I believe one should experience that at times with the one they love. However, those "feelings" are not enough to keep a marriage together.
If you are a Christian you know that "feelings" are linked with the flesh which is something we cannot trust or make decisions on. We are to be basing our decisions on the holy spirit (what others call intiution) and guidance offered. Feelings flutuate and sometimes fade, but true love with God remains.
I have never been in true romantic love, but I always admired married couples who truly love each other and have something special. I know those who are married will be able to relate or gain from this show (maybe even give some two cents). Also, there are many who desire marriage, but have no clue all the work marriage entails. Yes, marriage is a blessing from God, but anything good and lasting does not come easy.
Looking forward to this show.

At one time or another almost everyone has had doubts about their marriage. You may be passing through a difficult time with your spouse, and you have fears whether your marriage can continue to work, or even survive. In our current tough economic times, stresses on families are greater than ever and marital problems are even more common.

You have to learn the difference between a bump in the road and being stuck in a seriously damaged marriage. Here are 5 crucial things you need to assess to know if it is time to move on, and tips to help you if you want to try to save your marriage. If even one or more of these things is happening in your marriage, you need to take a closer look.
Love and marriage, love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
This I tell ya, brother, you can't have one without the other.
Love and marriage, love and marriage,
It's an institute you can't disparage.
Ask the local gentry and they will say it's elementary.
Try, try, try to separate them, it's an illusion.
Try, try, try and you only come to this conclusion:
Love and marriage, love and marriage
We've all heard the song before, immortalized by the suave tones of Frank Sinatra. A catchy tune that either one completely agrees with or no one agrees with.
After all, we have ample proof from society that love and marriage do not go together like a horse and carriage. In fact, marriage and love seem to be at odds with each other. Divorce rates are skyrocketing, whether Christian or not, in the U. S. In fact, marriage is seen as an unnecessary thing in order for a couple to stay together. After all, surely we don't need a piece of paper to state whether we're committed or not. Monogamy doesn't have to be in the confines of marriage, does it? We all know couples who have been together for years and are committed to each other.
So maybe, love and marriage don't go together.
But, is it all just about love and marriage? Is perhaps our definition of love somewhat skewed? Is love personified in the physical intimacy between man and women?

The Masterpiece Marrage
Good team work requires working together to create a zone of safety in the relationship. Each person needs to feel they can trust the other to give feedback as well as trusting that the other will be open to examining their own behavior. Feeling like your spouse is "on your side" is important for every healthy marriage. You want to be confident that you are facing life's unique challenges together, and that if something especially difficult were to happen, your spouse would not abandon you. Offer support and encouragement to your significant other and receive the same from them by effectively building teamwork in your relationship. Like it or not, vulnerability is necessary in order to resolve differences. Spouses need to be open to examining their own behavior as well as taking in and absorbing their partner's complaints and feedback. However, this is unlikely if the emotional environment between you feels unsafe.
