Marriage Partnership

Marriage Partnership in Action

Last month for Thursday Throwdown, we covered the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage with Lance Salazar. Over 4 weeks, he broke it down into: The Individual, The Partnership, Becoming Friends, and Becoming Lovers. Today I’m going to talk about the marriage partnership in action.

I applied a quasi business-like approach to working with my wife to make sure we were on the same page when it came to responsibilities. This included a weekly meeting where we “frontloaded” and planned everything in advance, from who was taking the kids to school to what we were having for dinner. We even synchronized our schedule in a Google calendar. Is it worth doing all this tedious planning? How does it benefit our marriage?

Listen and find out!

becoming friends with your spouse

4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 3—Becoming Friends

Remember when you and your spouse used to have fun together? You never ran out of things to talk about and you always had each other’s backs.

Then adulting got in the way—kids, jobs, stress. Sometimes it feels like you have nothing to talk about anymore and the distance between you grows.

Lance Salazar is back on for Part 3 of our 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Series. Today is devoted to becoming friends with your spouse again.

Lance gives us three key components to maintaining a close friendship with our spouses. They are:

  1. Deep Knowing
  2. Quality Time
  3. Being Present

Happy marriages are based on deep friendship and continuous fun. They’re about knowing your partner intimately—from hopes and dreams, down to the most embarrassing moments of childhood. This bond helps a couple to overcome adversity and show up as better parents. Listen to how to rekindle your friendship with your spouse in this short episode!

Be sure to tune in next Thursday for the fourth episode with Lance Salazar, Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 4—Becoming Lovers!

4 Elements of a LEGENDARY MARRIAGE

4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 2—The Partnership

We are dedicating this month to designing our relationships with our spouses. Lance Salazar cofounder of Legendary Couples and coauthor of The Miracle Morning for Couples is back for Part 2 of  this series. He has broken down the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage as:

  1. The Individual
  2. The Partnership
  3. Becoming Friends
  4. Becoming Lovers

Last week, we talked about putting marriage aside and developing ourselves as individuals first. This week we focus on the partnership, which includes opening up a dialogue about goals, roles, finances, and parenting.

The Partnership

The partnership aspect is about working as a team. It’s about focusing on each other’s strengths instead of weaknesses. What are you good at? What do you actually like to do? What is your spouse better at? What does she enjoy? Assign tasks accordingly. There is no need to argue when each partner knows what they are responsible for.

In a partnership, it is also important to define shared core values for the family and develop a “being” statement. Then a family can decide how they will put those values into action. Each member knows why they must do their part and how it fits into the bigger picture of family goals.

What is your money mindset as a couple? Once core values and goals are identified, planning finances is easier.

Finally, when it comes to parenting, Lance Salazar says if you’re not talking about it, you’re fighting about it. A couple must agree on how they will discipline their kids. He also suggests having a family meeting once a week to go over everyone schedules. This helps eliminate surprises, confusion, and unnecessary stress.

“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”—Henry Ford

legendary marriage individual

4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 1—The Individual

50% of marriages end in divorce. Out of the half that stay together, 1/3 report being happy, 1/3 are “happy enough” and the other 1/3 are miserable. We actively plan our businesses, goals, and finances, but most of us keep our marriage on auto-pilot and expect it to maintain itself. Communication breaks down, resentment builds, and the love slowly dies.

We are dedicating this month to designing our relationships with our spouses. Lance Salazar from Legendary Couples is back on the show. He has just released The Miracle Morning for Legendary Couples which he coauthored with Hal Elrod. He breaks down the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage for us:

  1. The Individual
  2. The Partnership
  3. Becoming Friends
  4. Becoming Lovers

Today, we talk about the first element, which is the individual. In order to be the best partners and parents, we have to work on ourselves first. Two people need to be able to stand on their own before they can love another. As a couple, spouses need to be interdependent, not codependent. Nothing is more attractive than a confident person who knows what they want and need in life. That is why, even though it sounds counterintuitive, the first step is to put the marriage on the shelf and let each person retreat in order to deal with their own baggage. Listen to how Lance and Brandy Salazar did it in this episode!
