Intimacy :

Intimacy Men are microwaves, women are crock pots. A woman stews all day on what her man said in haste that morning!

Income:

Income Money creates one of the biggest problems in marriage. Too little money . . . Poorly managed money . . . A woman usually leaves home and marries at the height of her father’s career and earning potential. The man she marries, however, may be at the lowest point of his career and earnings.

In-laws:

In-laws Some Practical Considerations: People come from different backgrounds. How did your family resolve conflict? How much input do you want from family? How close do you want to live to family Where will you spend holidays? We all carry baggage!

Infants:

Infants You’re each other’s baby until a baby comes along!

Infants:

Infants Considerations What is your attitude toward children? What is your view on discipline? What kind of parenting style did your parents have? What if you cannot conceive children? Who will take care of the children? Mom Dad Grandma Society

I - ego:

I - ego The biggest problem in any relationship is “self.” When we insist on having things our way . . . our relationships will suffer. I wanna talk about ME !!!! Toby Keith

I - ego Php 2:4-5 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus . . . 1Co 13:4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

I - ego:

I - ego Considerations . . . Will you give your spouse the same freedoms as you demand for yourself? Do you expect your spouse to spend as much time and money on their hobbies/interests as you do on yours? Men, do we think that our wives are inferior to the male gender?
