    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.

    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.

    Bye bye and die marriage-equality blog

    in Politics Progressive

    Coming up on 12 years, my first political blog, Marry in Massachusetts, is going on hiatus. I'd long figured to shut it down when we had legal same-sex marriage nationwide. It's time.


    I'll cover politics here, a bit in my personal blog, Harrumph, and at Left Ahead. In this show, I'll declare a victory for equality. This is the right kind of collateral damage from yesterday's SCOTUS decision.


    I'll talk about that ruling and touch on the majority and dissenting views. I've already done basic analysis on it at Marry in Massachusetts. It's a relief with a tinge of sadness in saying goodbye to the familiar.

    Marriage Equality in Illinois

    in Legal

    Through landmark legislation that passed in Springfield, IL last November, Same Sex Marriage has come in effect as of June 1, 2014. With this new legislation comes many questions and even more gray areas that have yet to be discussed or tested by the court and employers.  Questions such as: 


    What benefits are there for same sex couples?  


    How may business be affected by marriage equality? 


    Now that there is marriage equality, how will these couples be impacted in the courtroom in case of a dissolution of their own?


     


    To learn more about these questions and more, tune in to this podcast with Family Law attorney, Jenet Pequeno of Lavelle Law, Ltd.

    in Relationships

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

    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.
