    What is the Point of Marriage?

    in Relationships

     


    Divorce rate is high, extra-marital affairs are rampant, and the marital rate is comparatively low. So, why do we need marriage? Women seem to be gong-ho, but men (on the whole) seem to be on the fence. We can't go on like this! We need to talk.

    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.

    Rewriting Marriage? Do We Know What We're Doing?

    in Relationships

    If you ask the average newlywed couple if marriage is forever, they'd say "Yes." Yet, today over 50% of  all marriages end in divorce. Why is that? I got lots of questions, "Whose idea is the 'forever' part in the relationship? And "How is it that 'forever has gone away'?" This show begins a series of talks to see if we can make more sense of what we can do  when we get marriage and then do what make sense when we and if we do get married.

    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.
