No one enters marriage thinking they will have an affair, yet how do so many slide into infidelity so easily?  93% of affairs begin with a simple friendship. If you have locked your spouse out of your phone to hide messages you're sending to someone of the opposite sex, or if you're deleting those texts so your spouse won't find them ... you're not headed towards cheating ... you're already there.  A healthy marriage is a marriage that doesn’t hide things from one another. Honesty is the main foundations of having a great marriage.Support the show (https://strongermarriageworkshops.com/Welcome/)

TIME TO GET NAKED in your marriage ... Did you know in Genesis 2:25, it says, "Adam and Eve were both naked and they felt no shame."That word "NAKED" means "UNCOVERED," ... and uncovered means more than just naked, it means they were totally "bare" with one another .... there was nothing hidden from one another. God created marriage where you are to be "uncovered" with one another. Nothing hidden ... no secrets. No secret friendships, text messages, Facebook friends, etc.When someone tells us, "My spouse won't let me see their cellphone," it tells us that their spouse is doing something they shouldn't. Don't hide things from your spouse ... not purchases, friendships, cellphones, passwords, etc. The healthiest marriages are open, honest and keep NO secrets. Have a marriage that is "uncovered." That's how God created it.Interestingly enough ... if you know the story, after Adam and Eve sinned they immediately "covered" themselves with fig leaves. In marriage, when sin enters, nakedness leaves. Protect your trust and your nakedness in your marriage.Support the show (https://strongermarriageworkshops.com/Welcome/)

I few years ago I spent a little time with a man that was a millionaire. I think he was the first millionaire I’d ever met. I'll admit I was a bit in awe of him when I found out how much money he had. He told me about his plane, his multiple houses and other things that had me in awe.He said something to me that I'll never forget. His words literally rocked my world and made me rethink everything that I thought was important. His words still made me have chills. You want to know what he said?

10 NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR MARRIAGE1. SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER. Make a commitment to spend more time together this year. One of the best things you can do is commit to a weekly date night with your spouse. This may take you sitting down together with your spouse and planning out your schedule.2. BRAG ON YOUR SPOUSE REGULARLY. Any old lame critic can pick out someone’s faults; instead focus on pointing out your spouse’s strengths.3. BE MORE SEXUAL. Touch, flirt, hug and have sex together. Make your marriage sizzle, and as one author put it, “A married couple’s sex-life is a great measuring stick of how their relationship is doing.” A healthy sex-life most often equals a healthy marriage.4. PRAY TOGETHER. Men, this is where you MUST step up and be a man. Take the lead on this and do it. Your wife will love you for it.5. DON'T BE HISTORICAL. Fight fair. Don’t bring up past hurts and things you’ve already forgiven your spouse of.6. CHECK IN. It’s respectful to check with your spouse and let them know where you are, what you are doing and when you might be home.7. HAVE ONE MEAL A DAY TOGETHER. Turn off the electronics and just visit with your spouse and your children.8. DON'T GO TO BED ANGRY WITH ONE ANOTHER. Simple enough.9. FORGIVE. The key to being successful in real estate is location, location, location. The key to being successful in marriage is forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness. Marriage is made up of two imperfect faulty people. We make mistakes … so learn to forgive.10. DATE. Date night should be a regular weekly activity if it's not already. We hear couples say all the time, "We had so much fun when we were dating," and we always reply, "Why have you stopped?" Date ... it's fuel for your marriage.TreyAndLea.comSupport the show (https://strongermarriageworkshops.com/Welcome/)
