Better Together: Stop. Trying. To. Explain.

Welcome to Better Together. The newsletter that believes your marriage can be amazing. We hope that you will find this newsletter inspirational and practical.

“Close relationships, more than money or fame, are what keep people happy throughout their lives.” (The Grant Study, a 75-year-long Harvard research project on human development.)

What We Have Been Writing

Stop. Trying. To. Explain.

When something has gone wrong, apologize!

Make sure things have been repaired.

Then, if needed, feel free to explain.

The Couple Project


What are you planning to do for your spouse today:

  • Make dinner?
  • Compliment them?
  • Hug and kiss, maybe sex?
  • Join them in a hobby?
  • A gift?

Be specific about when and where.

Double check it is for them, in their love language, not for you.

The Couple Project


Don’t let your marriage stagnate.

Set a goal with your spouse.

Learn to enjoy working together.

The Couple Project


What We Have Been Reading

Do you really “appreciate” someone, if you do not tell them?

Are you really “grateful” for what you have in life, if you choose to focus on what you don’t have instead?

Being grateful & appreciative require focus, & action.

W/o that, consider that you may be lying to yourself.

Your Mom in the New Year


Satan likes a marriage without sex ... just as much as he likes sex without a marriage.

Trey & Lea's Stronger Marriages


If you and your wife aren't on the same page, the relationship is going to struggle.

You must have the same values and vision for life. No way around it.
