My husband shared a meme with me yesterday which said, “With no sports on TV due to March Sadness. I got to know my wife. She’s actually really nice. Works in the medical field.” We laughed. For a minute. And then I thought… it’s a little too true for comfort. If you’re reading this article on the day we posted it… then you are probably stuck at home, with the rest of America (or half of the world) with your husband or your wife. Quarantined. And even if your marriage is fine, being stuck in a house with your spouse and maybe even your kids for the never-ending foreseeable future can be overwhelming… (and stressful!)
Are you living apart from your spouse because of your job? Because of their job? Do you or your spouse work long hours and feel like you don’t see each other often? If you’ve experienced something like this, you know it adds an extra layer of stress to your life and to your marriage. This is common for military families, medical professionals, first responders, musicians, those in law enforcement, business leaders, truck drivers, and others (*this is not a comprehensive list). We’re going to teach you 3 questions you can ask yourself when you’re separated from your spouse because of work or other obligations.
Why is it that when we have troubles in our marriage we automatically think, “Let’s go to marriage counseling...” It’s the thing you do, right? I mean, it’s all you hear about from family, friends, or just society in general. We feel like it’s what we need to do if our marriage is in crisis. And, it seems to be the only option that’s there... But we want you to know that marriage counseling may not be what you truly need! We'll explain 3 things you may not know about counseling and how it works so you can decide if it’s what you should do to save your marriage.
It is tax season. "Yay," said no one, ever, except it's a great time for you to use SMART Contact™. Okay, you might be thinking, "What is smart contact and why is this girl so excited to be talking about it? I don't know what's going on."
One question we get all the time is, “How do I use SMART Contact if I don’t have kids?” If you and your spouse aren’t talking, the thought of going days or weeks without talking isn’t just painful- it’s terrifying! Especially if you feel like there’s nothing to hold your relationship together like having kids would… so what can you do?
The Holidays can be some of the most difficult and lonely times of the year, especially if your spouse is completely disengaged. Maybe your spouse stopped talking to you, or you’re separated, or you’re in the middle of a divorce… Whatever your situation may be, SMART Contact is the BEST way to communicate with your spouse, no matter what has happened. If anything works to bring back your spouse and get them to open up, this will.
It’s the time where the “most wonderful time of the year” becomes the “most stressful time of the year.” It’s the Holiday Season. (Think: Parties, parties, and more Holiday parties.) You can definitely be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of things going on. You want the Holidays to be a good experience where you can create and reminisce upon sweet memories. The pressure is ON.
