    How to Reconcile a Marriage After Major Trouble - The Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    Ready to reconcile your marriage after a major problem?


    Or maybe you want to know how to reconcile your marriage if you can get past your current problem. 


    In this program we will talk about how the expecations some have about reconciliation are not the same as the reality of what it will take to reconcile, what happens during reconciliaiton, and what your relationship will be like after you've put your marriage back together.


    True reconciliation requires things such as:


    - Understanding each other's hurt (and the grief process that goes with that hurt).


    - Seeking and granting forgiveness.


    - Defending each other.


    - Rebuilding trust.


    - Developing mutual accountability.


    - Changing communication patterns.


    - Understanding insecurities and potential comparisons.


    - Creating rituals (maybe replacing old rituals).


    ...and much more.


    We have as special guests a couple whose marriage was torn apart by infidelity. They resolved their problems and reconciled. They will tell their story.


    Additionally, Joe Beam will answer questions from callers during the program about this topic or any other relationship topic they wish to discuss. To be part of the program, call 646-378-0424.

    The Definitive Guide to Boundaries in Marriage

    in Relationships

    How can you stop your spouse from behaviors destructive to him- herself, to you, to your family, or to your relationship?


    You set boundaries. 


    How do you get your spouse to do the things necessary to keep your relationship alive when it seems it may not last?


    You set criteria.


    Boundaries and criteria are different. They have similarities, but the difference between them is crucial to understand. Even if a person sets and enforces solid boundaries, s/he may well be missing the effective restoration to a good relationship that can come with solid criteria.


    Our experience is that most people either don't set boundaries, set boundaries that are too broad, or any number of other things that make the boundaries either impossible to keep, or that are ignored by their spouses.


    We also witness people setting no criteria, poor criteria, and other mistakes that don't motivate their spouses to meet the criteria at all.


    How do you set boundaries? In this program Joe Beam discusses that in detail. How to make them, what to avoid, when to enforce them, and why they work.


    What about criteria? In this program, Joe explains the difference between boundaries and criteria, when to establish criteria, how to make ones that help, and how to use them to make your relationship better.


    Criteria and boundaries are not wishes and wants: They establish absolute do's and absolute don't's.

    How to Tell a Good Marriage Counselor from a Useless One

    in Relationships

    We hear the stories all to often.


    "We went to a counselor about our marriage and it was the biggest mistake every. She helped alright; helped destroy our marriage!"


    "As soon as the therapist discovered my husband was involved with someone else, he told us that he couldn't help us. That was it. Session over. My husband said, 'See, there's no help for us' and went to the other woman. Are there any counselors out there who actually help people in our situation?"


    "Turns out our counselor had the philosophy that each of us should be happy and if that wasn't together, we should follow our own individual paths to happiness. What a load of crap from a so-called marriage counselor."


    Are there good marriage counselors out there? Yes. Are they always easy to find? No.


    In this program Joe Beam offers suggestions on how to tell a good marriage counselor from one who is useless and from those who are destructive to your marriage. Be sure to have something ready to take notes. Of course, you can listen to the program again later to pick up the nuances you may have missed.


    All who call in to talk with Joe on the program are entered into the monthly drawing for half-off the Marriage Helper 911 workshop for marriages in crisis. Many good marriage counselors from across America refer people to this three-day marriage intensive. The couple then returns home to complete their work on either salvaging or making their marriage good again with the counselor who referred them. Those who are not referred by counselors can either work with a Marriage Helper Certified Marriage Coach or use the principles Joe shares in this program to find a good marriage therapist where they live.


    Whether you have a counselor that you aren't thrilled with or are looking for a marriage counselor for the first time, this program will give you specific suggestions to help find the right one.

    in Relationships

    What do you do when you've tried everything but your spouse still doesn't want to save your marriage?


    We have several suggestions, but in this program we offer even more. We have a special guest whose husband does not want to salvage their marriage. She's done all the right things but he still wants no part of it. Yet she is the most positive person we've ever worked with.


    How does she stay positive?


    What effect does that have on her?


    What effect may it have on him?


    You can can call to ask her questions. Of course, as always, you can call in your question or comment about anything to do with relationships and Joe Beam will be there to answer.
