In this episode:

  • You’ll hear a story about earned love vs love that’s freely given and why keeping score in your marriage also keeps love out of reach.
  • You’ll get a laughter challenge
  • And I’ll introduce a new segment–Communication Breakdowns/Breakthroughs–and ask for your participation.

How do you keep score in your relationship?

  • Do you give yourself a tally mark when you clean the kitchen?
  • Do you dock your spouse when they don’t?
  • Do you count the times you’ve had sex then wait because this time it’s your spouse’s turn to initiate?

When you keep score, it hurts your marriage communication. Keeping score turns love into a commodity that has to be earned. Love feels best when it is freely given.

Habit for Your Happily Ever After

Make the “game” of keeping score a REAL GAME that makes each of you laugh. It needs to feel fun for both of you. That’s what will allow your relationship to win.
