-Trap 1 – Trying to control your wife’s feelings and thoughts

-How to escape: Know your own worth, choosing to be the husband you WANT to be

-Trap 2 – Service and compromise. Rejecting and denying your own desires and agency.

-How to escape: Make requests, set boundaries, own your decisions

-Trap 3 – Thinking marriage HAS to work 

-How to escape: Realize you DO have the option to leave, then DECIDE whether to stay or not. Also let your wife choose whether to stay or not and know you WILL be ok either way if you build the necessary strengths and skills to get strong, get attractive, and get the marriage of your dreams.


P.S. If you are looking for marriage counseling or coaching, alone or as a couple, I’d like to invite you to a 30 minute Marriage Assessment to see if we would be a good fit to work together. We’ll discuss where you are in your marriage, where you want to be, and your best next steps to get there. Whether we work together after or not, my goal is to have this be the best 30 minutes you’ve spent on your marriage. CLICK HERE to schedule.
