    Are You Controlling if You Stand for Your Marriage? - The Dr. Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    Your spouse wants out of the marriage...but you don't.


    In the process of trying to end the marriage, your spouse is trying to do things that you want no part of. Maybe s/he's spending time with the "lover" while still living at home. Perhaps s/he's demanding things from you that you don't want to give about finances, custody, selling your home, or more.


    Your friends / family want you to punish your spouse for such egregious behavior and such arrogantly selfish demands. Your attorney counsels going for everything you can get. Your own hurt and anger tempt you to make this divorce a most miserable experience for your spouse.


    BUT your spouse says you're selfish, that your standing strong is just another example of you trying to control him/her, and that everything you are doing is definitive proof that s/he can't live with you and that divorce is the best thing that can happen.


    You find yourself worrying whether you should give in to most of his/her demands. You wonder if your standing strong and fighting for your marriage is building such anger and resentment in your spouse that never will there ever be a chance for reconciliation. You even have doubts about your own motives and fear that s/he is right and that you are a mean, selfish person and that the way you're standing strong actually proves that to be true.


    Would you like to know? Truly know if you are doing the right thing...if you are controlling or mean? In this program Dr. Joe Beam discusses this in depth. You can also call in your questions or comments on this topic live at 646-378-0424 during the program. It airs Tuesday, April 26, beginning at 9 p.m. Central.

    How to Reconcile Marriage (It's Tougher Than You Think) - The Dr. Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    What do you do when you've had major problems in your marriage and now want to try to reconcile?


    It's tougher to accomplish than most people think.


    It's great when a couple decides to put a marriage back together. However, without a valid understanding of what caused the trouble (and that usually means MUCH more than the final issue that became the focus of the marriage problems), many couples who try to reconcile run headlong into a wall of pain and frustration.


    For example, if the marriage hit crisis because of an affair, ending the affair doesn't necessarily mean that the underlying issues have been healed. What led to the affair? What weaknesses exist in either spouse? What relationship dynamics helped create the vulnerability? (This isn't to justify something such as an affair; it's to point out that some people think things are now fine because the affair ended BUT THERE ARE STILL ISSUES that haven't been dealt with.)


    That same principle applies to much more than affairs...it applies to control and domination, selfishness, in-law problems, sexual problems, and much, much more.


    In this program, Dr. Joe Beam guides you through a process of discovering and dealing with the real issues and then following a proven plan to make reconciliation actually work so that the marriage becomes better after the problem than it was ever before. 


    Dr. Beam will also take calls with specific questions about reconciliation. The program airs beginning at 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 5. If you wish to Dr. Beam during the program call 646-378-0424.

    Marriage Myths: 7 Common Beliefs That Lead to Major Marriage Problems

    in Relationships

     


     


    Everyone had an opinion about marriage. What you should do, what you should not do, and how you should do it.


    Unfortunately not everyone has the best advice when it comes to marriage. And even worse, some of the advice is actually more destructive to marriage than helpful.

    TS Radio: Claudia Donnelly on Abusive Guardianships in Washington State

    in Family

    Hosted by Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer


    Guest: Claudia Donnelly


    Claudia was her mother’s hcpoa. In 2004 - 2006, I was her caregiver. She was a victim of financial exploitation — but neither the state cared enough to investigate or the King County Sheriff’s Office  I visited her 3 times a week in the Federal Way facility she was in from March 2006-June 2007.  My siblings had her house sold before she was even dead. I have no contact with my siblings. My siblings wanted her in a care facility (she had a long-term care insurance policy that only allowed it to be used in a facility.)  . I talked to an attorney in 2005 about getting help for mom and me as my siblings refused to help. I can’t help mom any longer, so starting in 2006/2007 I’ve become an advocate trying to help others in our state and across the country


    Claudia will be discussing how WA State treats the elderly who have or need a guardian. Our state leaders are like ostriches with their heads in the sand. I’ve been told that “we — meaning the state” — won’t be working on any help for them until the 2017 session. The state recently released a state Alzheimer’s Plan — I testified about guardians who go after seniors with Alzheimer’s — but the only solution I’ve seen is that there needs to be another study group. How is another study group going to help our seniors who are being exploited by professional guardians? Guardians isolating seniors — I tried helping Kerri Kasem when she was in WA State with her 2 bills. I talked to someone today who is running for state Rep. and he feels — and I agree— that WA State officials are behind the times. Duh?

    When to Let Go of a Marriage - The Dr. Joe Beam Show

    in Relationships

    For many years we've been helping people salvage marriages that appeared absolutely hopeless...not only salvage their marriages but make them good again...most better than they were before.


    That is why Marriage Helper exists (www.MarriageHelper.com). Our purpose is to help couples in trouble find a new way, see each other in a different light, discover a path to love again. We call it the LovePath. Most of the couples who come to our intensive three-day workshops have one spouse who wishes to save the marriage and one who wants out. Nevertheless, we witness three out of four marriages turn around and not only stay together but learn to love each other again.


    However, that means that some marriages don't make it. It breaks our hearts for the spouse who wants to save the marriage...for the children who are affected...for the friends and family of both husband and wife.


    We believe that any marriage can be saved. We encourage people to stand strong when their spouses stray, or are angry, mean, indifferent, cold, or any other of the hosts of hurtful behaviors. But we know that there comes a time to yield to the inevitable, to stop standing and move on with one's life. 


    The question is: When? How do you know whether to let go or continue to fight for the marriage? 


    In this program we provide guidelines to consider for all those who think it may be time to stop standing for their marriages. No, there aren't hard and fast rules. However, there are principles and things to consider that can help you make that decision. 


    This program may give you the strength and motivation to keep on. It may give you the path to peace as you let go. We don't make that decision for you. We show you how to make it for yourself.


    Call in your comments or questions live during the program at 646-378-0424.
