They are still a part of the rule making. They still have input on every conversation. But most of all they are interfering with the very essence of your marriage. How do you handle this situation?

    Great Sex in Marriage - The Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    You may have seen the statistics. One in five marriages are in the "no sex" category. That means they have sex with each other ten times a year or less. Another 15% are in the "low sex" category, which means they have sex with each other 11 to 25 times per year. That means 35% (or we can just round that to one out of three) married American couples between the ages of 18 and 59 make love to each other twice a month or less, and the majority of those are once a month or less.


    Notice that these aren't folks in the nursing home.


    Does making love this little have an effect on a marriage? On sexual health? On potential affairs? On use?


    Yes to all of the above.


    In this program, Joe Beam discusses how sex in a marriage is directly affected by the relationship the couple have. More than that, he discusses how to increase both the frequency of lovemaking and the enjoyment that both husband and wife can gain from it.


    For those couples where one spouse wants to do something sexually that the other is resistant to do, he offers practical advice about how to solve that problem to the satisfaction (emotionally and sexually) of both spouses.


    He also reveals the secret to changing bad sex (or even good sex) to GREAT sex.


    Call in to talk with Joe about specific questions you have about lovemaking, anatomy, or anything you wish to learn. No questions are taboo. (Proper language is required.) 


    If you wish, feel free to use pseudonym to hide your identity. Use a fake British accent if you want, but be sure that Joe talks about what you wish to know by calling to talk with him during the program at 646-378-0424. The program airs live beginning at 9 p.m. Central on February 9, 2016.

    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 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 Power of Positive When a Marriage is in Trouble

    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.
