Bad news

Gerry and I have often been asked the following question, “Hey guys, is there every a good time to give your wife bad news?” In our experience, having had to disseminate bad news in our own marriages, we would say “THERE IS NEVER A GOOD TIME.”

For example, as an entrepreneur, your pay cycle is “Whenever your client’s cash flow is in order’, right or the sales cycle on a big deal takes longer than usual.

As a guy, you did something really stupid, like look at Porn on the family computer and your kids almost viewed some of the pictures. Or you had an affair with another woman.

Now comes the time when you have to tell your wife that your finances will be a little tight, or the dreaded, “Honey, I have to tell you something”. First, why do we say honey, as if it will soften the blow? Second, this statement immediately sends chills up your wife’s spine. It would do the same to you.

So what do we do, when we have to give our wife some bad news?

First let’s define – Bad News. Guys, hopefully you know your wife and her threshold to issues. The scale is from 1 to 10, with 10 being a great threshold for bad news and 1 being a low threshold. Please get a better understanding of this issue first.

Second, you have to realize that no matter how strong (emotionally) you think your wife is, she is not. Most women still have that little girl inside of them, that’s needs to be protected, that needs emotional security that longs for affirmation from a male figure. So, please understand that armor of strength from your wife is a façade. She is not the callous, insensitive, uncaring person you think she is. I know some of you are saying, “Steve, you’ve never met my wife.”

Steps 3 & 4 tomorrow stay tuned…

10 Romance Ideas.. July 28, 2007

Fly Kite

Here you guys, these are free of charge use them wisely and have fun with it. You can always take these ideas and put your own spin on them.

1. Touch
Touch your spouse lovingly at least five times a day. Kissing, hugging, and hand-holding are all healthy touch points. Try to make each touch point meaningful, letting your spouse know that he or she is in your thoughts every day.

2. Talk
The average couple talks only four minutes a day. It’s no wonder spouses don’t feel close and loved. Four days a week, plan at least 45 minutes when you can be alone together and do something you both enjoy. These aren’t times to talk about problems, but rather to increase your easy-going time together.

3. Date
One night a week, come hell or high water, you and your spouse should go out alone to enjoy each other’s company. You can do anything, go anywhere, and talk about anything except three things: money, children, and work (unless it’s exciting stuff – for example, I got a promotion).

4. Have a honeymoon night
At least once a month, plan a fabulous night of romance and lovemaking. Plan the details: a wonderful meal; a fun time out on a date; a romantic movie – anything that screams ‘romance’ to you. Make this the recharging night that will advance your relationship beyond words.

5. Bring her flowers that remind you of her and write her a poem, celebrating her.

6. Surprise her with romantic dinner out – don’t tell her where you are going.

7. Take her dancing and treat her as if it’s your first date.

8. Fill the house (or just the bedroom) with candles and flowers, and spend the whole evening along with her.

9. Spend an hour at sunset telling her what you cherish about her and how she adds to your life.

10. Leave a note under her windshield wiper at work.

In Jail

Let me throw out some statistics related to men:

– 50-60% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time or another during their relationship
– More than 27 million children-39% of all US children-now live apart from their father
– A child with a nonresident father is 54 percent more likely to be poorer than his or her father
– A study of 13,986 women in prison showed that more than half grew up without their father. Forty-two percent grew up in a single-mother household and sixteen percent lived with neither parent
-Being raised by a single mother raises the risk of teen pregnancy, marrying with less than a high school degree, and forming a marriage where both partners have less than a high school degree
– Compared to their peers living with both parents, children in single parent homes had:
– A 77% greater risk of being physically abused
– An 87% greater risk of being harmed by physical neglect
– A 165% greater risk of experiencing notable physical neglect
– A 74% greater risk of suffering from emotional neglect
– An 80% greater risk of suffering serious injury as a result of abuse
– Overall, a 120% greater risk of being endangered by some type of child abuse.
– 90% of all Crimes are committed by MEN
– 100% of all rapes are committed by MEN
– 95% of all burglaries are committed by MEN
– 91% of all crimes against the family are committed by MEN
– 94% of all DUI are committed by MEN

Amazing huh, what are you right to ensure you do not become one of these statistics.
