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!

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

Be sure to tune in next Thursday for the third episode with Lance Salazar, 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 3—Becoming Friends.

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!

A Wife's Thoughts on The Dad Edge Alliance and Summit

A Wife’s Thoughts on The Dad Edge Alliance and Summit

Today is a first. We not only have a longtime Dad Edge Alliance member on Thursday Throwdown, we have his wife! If you have been thinking about joining The Dad Edge Alliance or attending our Dad Edge Summit this summer, but are wondering how your wife will feel about the idea, this interview with Javier and Suzanne will show you what happens when a man finds his tribe.

Javier and Suzanne have been together for 14 years and are parents. They had a fairy tale beginning, but once real life kicked in, intense fights and break ups left open wounds. Javier opens up about his struggles as a man. He tells us how The Dad Edge Alliance helped him grow and how the Dad Edge Summit catalyzed all he had learned into a clear vision for the future.

His wife, Suzanne, gets real about the marriage problems they had and how beneficial The Dad Edge Alliance and Dad Edge Summit have been to their relationship as a couple and a family.

Simple, Sexy Marriage with Dr. Corey Allan

Today we have Dr. Corey Allan on the show. He is a marriage and family therapist and the host of the Sexy Marriage Radio podcast, which has been going strong for seven years. Dr. Allan outlines most common problems couples bring to his office, including sex. In this conversation, we get granular about sex issues along with intimacy and pornography.

In his experience, Dr. Corey Allan estimates that that man has the higher desire for sex in 70% of marriages, but men tend to follow a script and don’t get creative with their wives. He tells us what we’re doing wrong when it comes to trying to get more sexual with our spouses and how to talk about it without putting them on the defense. He also talks about the 30% of marriages in which the woman has the higher desire for sex and how couples can manage that.

You may be surprised by his advice. Download this episode because you’ll want to listen to it again!
