    While one can arguably say, “Bacon makes everything better” it doesn’t mean eating bacon is good for your health. For example, studies have shown that five hours after eating a pork chop, red blood cells clump together decreasing the flow efficiency of those cells throughout the body. Complaining is similar to bacon, it may feel good when doing it but long term, complaining has negative effects on the brain and body as a whole.

    We periodically look at marriage from a business perspective, not to make marriage impersonal but to learn how good business practices or assessments can help improve your marriage. In business an action or transaction is assessed by the value it brings to or takes away from the business. A transaction that adds value is accretive. Applying this principle to your marriage, you would assess whether a certain action strengthens or weakens your marriage.

    When people talk about Proverbs 31 they always talk about this incredible woman. Just how incredible is she? For starters she’s a wife, a mother, a successful businesswoman and a philanthropist.

    Spouses need to quit pretending to be someone they are not just to meet their spouse’s expectations of who they ‘should’ be or ‘want’ them to be. If they’re introverted they will never be extroverted; if they’re more comfortable in casual clothes and restaurants, they’re not suddenly going to start desiring fancy restaurants and formal attire. However, it’s okay to ask them to occasional accommodate your interests, just don’t withhold your love or resent them if they don’t permanently change because they probably can’t, even if they tried.

    Life tends to get more complicated as we get older. Work becomes more demanding, chores pile up, kids drain the life out of us, and aging parents require more of our attention. It’s no wonder that by the end of the day, spouses find it almost impossible to drum up enough energy to have a meaningful discussion that goes beyond just recounting the day's events. Unfortunately when this happens, mindless activities or ‘dead air’ time, often replaces active involvement in each other’s lives.

    Like it or not, when restoring a marriage it will almost always be driven by ‘her’ timeline. Guys are great at departmentalizing so, once they fix something they are ready to move on.

Here are a few ‘tests’ you may face and what you should know about each.

    One of the top issues cited by divorced couples and spouses in troubled marriages is money. Not the money itself but how couples handle or mishandle it. In 2018 the average household had just under $7,000 in credit card debt with an average interest rate of 16.46%, which equates to $96 a month in interest payments. When so many are living paycheck to paycheck, it should be no surprise to read in the Bible in Proverbs 22 verse 7: The borrower will be a slave to the lender.
