“My spouse and I aren’t on the same page financially, what should I do?” This is a common problem and one that should be looked into as soon as possible and should have been checked at the door.
As in the picture (to left), couples are getting married and are coming in the gate with high amounts of financial problems, usually starting with ones or both of their debts to other people or organizations.
Because couples get hitched young (often), young folks have a tendency to be more into good smiles, body parts, and good looks; they tend to overlooking the weightier matters.
These weightier matters end up mattering very harshly, like you should have known their IQ scores ahead of time.
Scores such as:
Emotional Intelligence Quotient
Financial Intelligence Quotient
And Spiritual Intelligence Quotient
If you didn’t get these scores prior to marriage, you’re going to have to do a real subtle but not sneaky conversion process. It may have to be a real good humble push and tug to get your spouse to see what you’re now seeing. If you force it or do things overtly, you could end up in a different type of financial quandary called divorce.
Take your time, use wisdom, skill, tact, and grace to steer the direction of your spouse.

Three words not just for marriage but for relationships also…
Importance Communication Marriage!
If you are in relationship or even better, in a marriage, OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND TALK. Don’t argue, shout, hold it in, have regular communications so you can express your thoughts and feelings with the person you’re suppose to trust most. This is what this video is about, and I only surface talk so don’t expect details on how to communicate, but know that you HAVE to in order to keep your marriage alive and thriving.
Too often people bottle things up, and there is a time for that, but remember, no one is a mind reader, so you have to spell things out for them by communication. The importance of communication in marriage is so key, it is the leading reason all relationships dissolve.
Leave a comment if you have ever been in a relationship or marriage where you did not communicate as best as you could have and you see in hindsight had you done so, the situation would have been fixed!
This is no April fools, at least I hope not. The heart does better when it has a companion. This is according to a nationwide study of three and half million participants, and the study found married couples to be less likely to suffer heart problems.
Marriage Good for Health
Married couples are less likely to have blood-vessel problems, this compared to their single, divorced, and widowed brothers and sisters.
I am not suggesting if you’re single to run and tie the knot, no, no, but instead consider the implications. I know marriages can cause stress when they are not set up the correct way. We do not have marriage counselors for nothing you know.
We do not have divorce rates of nearly 50 percent for no reason. However, the study simply states that married people have better hearts than those not married. The reason for this can be simple as the old proverb, two is better than one.
One spouse can encourage the other into healthier habits, than if one was alone to themselves, their TV, and their ice cream, bag of chips, oily meat and gravy, and a shot of Due Daniels cousin, Jack.
“The benefits were seen for both men and women,” said Dr. Jeffrey Berger, a cardiologist at NYU Langone and co-author of the study.
A couple that was interviewed, who’d been married for over 70 years, gave some insight. The wife said, “men are usually not very good at looking after themselves, healthwise.” She said “couples really need to look out for one another.”
I agree and I am sure this is what happens plenty of times in keeping spouses in check. The Claire Huxtable move, take away the long ‘hoagie’ sandwich, and keep the beers to a minimum is what the Claire would do on the ole Cosby Shows.
Marriage Good for Health Study Reveals
Here are some things that this 70-plus year husband does for his wife everyday. He compliments his wife daily, telling of her wonderful smile. This kinda forces her to smile more often right?
The numbers from the study were not dramatic, like 50% lower risk. I’m sure many married couples out there still have high blood pressure, heart disease and all the other works.
Married people had a 5% lower risk of any cardiovascular disease compared with single people, a 3% lower risk compared with widowed people and a 5% lower risk compared with divorced people.
The numbers are slightly lower. One bad habit, smoking, was highest among divorced people and widowed had the highest rates of high blood pressure, lack of exercise, and diabetes in this study.
The answer is not to run get married, it is rather to start now to practice better habits, so you attract a partner of the same, or encourage who you’re dating to do likewise. From there, you can exchange vows, and get a completely different heart problem… dealing with spouse.
